Brands Hatch (Indy)
Saturday 29 - Sunday 30 March 2014

The British Touring Car Championship is the UK's premier four wheeled motorsport series, famed for its close racing, unpredictable results and inevitable contact between its hard charging drivers.

There's an even bigger buzz than usual about the 2014 season, with an unprecedented 'magnificent 7' champions taking part. BTCC legends Alain Menu and Fabrizio Giovanardi join fellow title-winners Matt Neal, Jason Plato, Gordon Shedden and Colin Turkington on the grid, all of them aiming to topple reigning champion Andrew Jordan.

The opening round of the year takes place on the 'bullring' Indy circuit, the traditional season starter point for the series. With this being the first round of the year, expect surprise new winners, dramatic racing and thrills and spills aplenty. With unrivalled views from the surrounding areas, spectators will be able to see all the action unfold right in front of them!

It's almost impossible to pick a winner, but if you think you can, try our new BTCC Predictor competition and you could win a great prize!

As well as three races from the BTCC, there will be support from the Ginetta GT Supercup, Renault Clio Cup, Formula Ford, and the young chargers of the Ginetta Junior Championship.

ADVANCE BOOKING HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT THE GATE.
