Silverstone set to host 2020 BTCC Season Launch and Test Day

1 Mins read

The 2020 British Touring Car Championship Season Launch will be held again over two days with the official pre-season test day taking place on Tuesday 17 March at Silverstone.

The full grid of 30 cars will test on the Silverstone International circuit with the configuration being used in the championship for the very first time.

This will be open to the public free of charge with a pitlane walkabout also scheduled to occur so that fans can meet the new and current drivers as they get ready for the season opener at Donington Park on 28/29 March.

An evening event acts as a precursor to that on 16 March and kicks off the British Touring Car Championship season with ITV and select media being given the opportunity to speak to the drivers ahead of the season starting.

From there it all kicks off at Donington Park with Silverstone getting a visit on the new configuration in September after the National circuit in late April.
