2019 BTCC Season Launch event announced
The official Season Launch ahead of the 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship will take place over two days this year, with fans being treated to a full day of testing at Brands Hatch on 27 March.
An exclusive evening event will kick off this year’s proceedings at historic Hever Castle near Edenbridge in Kent on the 26th, with official championship photography and ITV filming duties set to take place there, as well as a number of other media interviews and activities.
The following day, the full quota of 30 BTCC cars is then scheduled to take to the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit, and fans will be welcomed to the legendary venue FREE OF CHARGE all day from 0930.
A packed itinerary of testing is planned, with all teams and drivers due to head out together for the first time this year, over some six hours of on-track action.
Fans will also be able to get up close and personal with 2019 machinery and meet their favourite drivers during the Pit Lane Walkabout over the lunch break.
The Kentagon Restaurant and Grand Prix Terrace food outlet in the inner paddock will be open throughout the day at Brands Hatch, serving hot meals and sandwiches.
The Season Launch test day will offer attendees an action-packed taster of what to expect when the championship gets underway at the same venue just over a week later, on 6-7 April.
Media accreditation will be opened in due course, for both the official Season Launch test day and for BTCC Season Media Passes.
Tickets for the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season-opener at Brands Hatch (6-7 April) are available from £28 for adults, with free entry for children aged 13 and under. For more information call 0843 453 9000 or visit www.brandshatch.co.uk.
