The British Touring Car Championship has today issued a revised provisional calendar for the 2020 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship which will see the stars of the BTCC head to Thruxton on Saturday 19 - Sunday 20 September 2020.
The provisional calendar released by series Organiser, TOCA, comprises of nine events and a total of 27 races.
TOCA has taken the decision to provisionally plan events from August onwards, however, the calendar will, of course, remain conditional upon receiving appropriate government directives and approvals regarding the resumption of sporting activities.
Alan Gow, BTCC Chief Executive, 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.”
