Donington Park set to launch new BTCC season!

There’s just a week to go until the much anticipated Season Launch Day for the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship!

The new cars and driver line-ups will again be shown off at Donington Park, as the entire field descends on the Leicestershire circuit for the first time this year, with a vital official test session taking place in the afternoon.

This is your first chance this year to see series legends Jason Plato, Matt Neal, Colin Turkington, Gordon Shedden and Andrew Jordan in action, with plenty of talking points ahead of the new season!

Reigning champion Gordon Shedden remains at Halfords Yuasa Racing alongside Matt Neal. Will the orange and black Honda Civics be the cars to beat again, or will a year of development for the exciting Subaru Levorg mean Jason Plato will be fighting for the title once more? Colin Turkington rejoins West Surrey Racing, now with official BMW backing, with Andrew Jordan also joining the team. Will Turkington’s return to BMW machinery mean he’s a title favourite? Will Jordan be able to get to grips with a rear wheel drive car? Will the new factory-backed Vauxhall be a challenger? Which of the new drivers will make the best impression?

All of these questions, and many more will begin to be answered at the Season Launch Day!

Public entry to the circuit is free of charge from 12.30pm on Thursday 16 March. Hospitality is also available from £35. For more information, click here.
