TOCA has today (15 June) confirmed its calendar for the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
The 2017 campaign will again be played out over a total of 10 meetings and 30 races, while the date and location of the season launch will be confirmed in the coming months.
Announced just halfway through the 2016 season, next year’s BTCC calendar will see an unchanged line-up which again begins and concludes at Brands Hatch in Kent. Visits to Donington, Thruxton, Oulton Park and Croft all follow before the summer break, after which visits to Snetterton’s 300 circuit, Knockhill in Fife, Rockingham, Silverstone and the full Brands Hatch GP layout conclude the second half of the season.
“With the BTCC’s enormous and ever-increasing popularity, this format has continually proven to be a real winner”, said Series Director Alan Gow.
“It provides our teams, partners, venues, huge TV audience and of course our hundreds of thousands of fans with a consistent and proven calendar that always delivers a great championship.
“We have defined our 2017 calendar as early as possible with this unprecedented mid-June announcement to help other UK motor sport events in reducing the amount of clashes that can inevitably occur”.
ITV4 will continue to broadcast every BTCC meeting live, free-to-air and in high definition in 2017, as well as streaming live via the ITV Sport website and the ITV Hub app.
