The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship is back for another season of excitement, drama and intrigue, plus plenty of bumper-to-bumper racing on track! It's the UK's biggest car racing championship, and stars highly-modified saloons and hatchbacks similar to those seen on the nation's roads.
A five-way fight for last year's title went right down to the wire, with Scotland's Gordon Shedden emerging as champion in the Honda Civic Type R. He'll be defending his crown against ever-tougher opposition and changes to the field have already been announced, including 2013 champion Andrew Jordan joining Mat Jackson at Motorbase (Ford) and Subaru joining forces with Team BMR for drivers Jason Plato and Colin Turkington. WSR (BMW) and MG will also be fighting for victories.
Brands Hatch hosts the opening round of the 2016 season, and it's your first chance to see who's quickest with three races likely to produce a trio of winners. Reverse grids, option tyres and success ballast should ensure that there's plenty of variety, and there's always something going on in the BTCC pack!
The weekend also features supporting action from the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, Renault UK Clio Cup, Ginetta GT Supercup, Ginetta Juniors and MSA Formula.ADVANCE BOOKING HAS NOW CLOSED. TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AT THE GATE.
British Touring Car ChampionshipPersonalities and bodywork collide in Britain's premier car racing series. Manufacturers such as Honda, Infiniti, Ford, and BMW are represented on a grid of more than thirty cars.
Renault UK Clio CupThis series is, in a word, 'intense'! The drivers are evenly matched and the cars identical - the result is some of the most exciting racing on the BTCC support bill!
Porsche Carrera Cup Great BritainClose GT racing from an iconic German marque. This all-encompassing series provides a multi-class platform for professionals and gentleman drivers alike to experience top-draw GT action.
Michelin Ginetta GT SupercupThese cars are very similar to those that can be found in the British GT Championship. As such this is a great place for an aspiring GT racer to learn his craft in front of the huge crowds that support the BTCC.
Ginetta Junior ChampionshipA series for young chargers aged 14 to 17 to hone their driving style. Former competitors have graduated to GT racing, BRDC Formula 4 and other series on the Touring Car Package.
MSA FormulaAn entry-level series for young single-seater drivers.
