Revised BTCC calendar announced
Revised BTCC calendar announced

The Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship have this morning announced a revised calendar for the 2020 season.

The season will potentially get underway on 1st August with the opening round being held at Donington Park.

Brands Hatch will then host the second round of the season a week later before hosting the season finale in mid November.

Speaking about the revised calendar, BTCC Chief Executive, Alan Gow said: “These are incredibly challenging times for the whole nation. Through it all, we have seen the importance of being both adaptable and pragmatic… and the BTCC is no different. So it’s entirely logical to draft plans and lock-in our provisional dates, with the ability to amend those if circumstances dictate. 

“Obviously this calendar presents a hectic four months, with three separate back-to-back events and four events in the first five weeks alone. But our teams and drivers are fully up for the challenge – there’s such enormous energy, enthusiasm and passion for the BTCC that everyone will want to just roll up their sleeves and get the action underway when the time comes to go racing.


“However, the over-arching element will always be to ensure we have the correct procedures and protocols in place, in order to provide a safe environment. But before that time comes the most important thing we can all do is to please stay safe and also protect the health of others.”

The full calendar will provisionally be:
