BTCC primed and ready at Brands Hatch
The 2014 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship gets underway this weekend (29/30 March) at Brands Hatch in Kent after a sensational winter of high-profile announcements. The enormous grid is packed with talent, and with the first competitive timed session being tomorrow’s qualifying, the championship is primed for another special season.
The BTCC’s supporting cast of race series, including the Porsche Carerra Cup GB, Renault Clio Cup UK and Ginetta GT4 Supercup, took to the track today for their practice sessions, while the BTCC cars and drivers eagerly await their first sessions tomorrow morning. The first free practice session will be at 10:00, with FP2 at 12:40 before that all important qualifying session at 15:40. As was the case in 2013, qualifying will be streamed live via the ITV BTCC website, with commentary provided by Tim Harvey and David Addison.
