Today, Thursday the 27th of September is MacMillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ and to support this, Dunlop UK has an original piece of Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship artwork up for auction where proceeds will be donated towards MacMillan Cancer Support.

The artwork created by Ian Cook of Popbangcolour is of the poster specially commisioned at the start of the year by TOCA to commemorate sixty years of the British Touring Car Championship.

The piece was created at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations at Snetterton and was then subsequently signed by many of the current BTCC grid. Drivers included reigning champion Ashley Sutton, Jason Plato, Andrew Jordan, Tom Ingram and Diamond Double race winner Matt Neal.
