TOCA, organiser of the British Touring Car Championship has today (15 March) confirmed minor tweaks to the previously issued 2021 calendar following the recent announcement of the government roadmap for easing of Coronavirus restrictions.

The opening weekend at Thruxton at 8/9 May will remain unchanged and will take place behind closed doors but from there, amendments have been made to the scheduling of the subsequent two events in order to maximise the potential of spectators to return to circuits.

The revised calendar will now see Snetterton scheduled on 12/13 June. Brands Hatch Indy will be two weeks later on 26/27 June with all substantial spectator restrictions likely to be relaxed by then.

No further changes have been made following that with Oulton Park and Knockhill, the next on the calendar in late July and early August, before Thruxton hosts Rounds 16, 17 and 18 in their second visit of the year.

Back-to-back weekends follow in September at Croft and Silverstone‘s national circuit. Following that, the final two meetings are set for Donington Park and Brands Hatch GP with the latter acting as the season finale on 23/24 October.
