  • British Touring Car Championship organisers make tweaks to schedule

  • Event two and three to run at Snetterton and Brands Hatch respectively

  • Opening rounds at Thruxton in May will race ‘behind closed doors’

In light of the recent Government announcements regarding the easing of the COVID-19 restrictions and the national ‘roadmap’ over the coming weeks and months, the Kwik-Fit British Touring Car Championship has today announced some small alterations to the 2021 calendar.


Thruxton Circuit in Hampshire will still host the first three rounds of the new BTCC season over the weekend 8th/9th May, albeit without spectators permitted, but the second event of the year will now be held at Snetterton 300 Circuit in Norfolk on 12th/13th June.


Two weeks later, when all major spectator restrictions which are currently in place are expected to have been lifted, Brands Hatch Indy Circuit in Kent will be the venue for rounds seven, eight and nine of the championship.


Thereafter, the schedule is unchanged – with visits to Oulton Park in Cheshire, Knockhill in Scotland and a return to Thruxton spread throughout August. North Yorkshire’s Croft Circuit will host the BTCC on 18th/19th September with Silverstone National Circuit in Northamptonshire welcoming the championship just one week later.


The final two events are at Donington Park National Circuit in Leicestershire and Brands Hatch’s full Grand Prix Circuit, over the weekends 9th/10th October and 23rd/24th October respectively. As expected, a full 30-race programme will take place.
