This is the first issue of ThePreview, an e-magazine looking at providing the best news, reports, reaction and features for the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

There will be two issues per round, one preceding the race weekend and the other, TheReview, the week following, both on Wednesdays. In conjunction with theCheckeredFlag.co.uk, we hope to provide you with the premier way of keeping up-to-date with what makes the series tick.

In this issue:

  • Silverstone Preview: Can Gordon Shedden keep hold of his championship lead at the penultimate round? Or will his Honda Yuasa Racing teammate Matt Neal fight back?
  • Ollie Jackson talks about his strong Rockingham result and the weight it has lifted from his AmDTuning.com team’s shoulders
  • Fan-favourite Rob Austin races under supporter power again at Silverstone – and wants to reward his “special” fans with success
  • Team-HARD. special! Interviews with Howard Fuller – the BTCC’s newest star – who is aiming for a full-time drive in 2013, and team boss Tony Gilham, as he prepares his team for a championship assault next season.
