Thruxton BTCC To Be Run Behind Closed Doors

21 Aug 20

This year’s Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) race meeting at Thruxton (19/20 September 2020) will have to be run behind closed doors, without spectators.

As the BTCC is the UK’s premier car racing championship, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) has classified it as an elite sport and as such must follow the government's elite sport pathway, which currently doesn’t allow spectators to attend events.


Alan Gow, BTCC Chief Executive commented:
We are disappointed that there will be no spectators at the British Touring Car Championship Race Meeting at Thruxton this year. BTCC will be back at Thruxton in 2021 for twice the action, 8-9 May and 28-29 August.

We look forward to seeing fans back at Thruxton to enjoy the high octane racing that only the BTCC can deliver.


We are disappointed that fans won’t be able to enjoy seeing and hearing the BTCC and support championships this year and are so sorry for the inconvenience this decision will cause.  We can, however, reassure you that the BTCC will be back at Thruxton in 2021 for two race meetings - 8/9 May and 28/29 August.
