#ForeverForward the Dunlop Way
Overtaking league table to highlight most positions gained
The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship will once again reward the driver with the highest number of overtakes across the season in the #ForeverForward league table.
The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship is arguably the most popular, successful and entertaining championship in the UK, featuring some of the best-loved racing drivers from around the world. Round after round, thousands of spectators flock to the tracks to watch their heroes battling wheel-to-wheel with their rivals, while millions more watch the action from the comfort of their living room.
It’s the close racing that attracts the fans, and the amount of door handle to door handle overtaking that entertains them, so to reward drivers for their determination this season, the driver with the highest number of overtaking passes at the end of the season will be awarded the Dunlop Forever Forward Award.
The overtaking league table will focus on the battles throughout the field, the fightbacks from adversity across all three races at each of the ten events, and the determination of the best touring car drivers in the world. A point will be awarded for every place gain across the races, and at the end of the year the driver with the highest number of points will be presented with the Dunlop Award.
The #ForeverForward league table will be published after each race on the series’ official website www.btcc.net, and will show which of the drivers has made the biggest improvement from their start position to finish position. Using the hashtag #ForeverForward, visitors across Dunlop’s social media platforms will also be able to keep up to speed with progress across the events, something which proved incredibly successful across Moto2™ and Moto3™ last season.
Tony Ward, Dunlop Marketing Manager said: “The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship is without doubt one of the most exciting, entertaining and intense championships in the country and among the most enduring competitive championships. Every race, at every event sees incredible battles throughout the field, so it’s only natural that as sponsor and official tyre supplier, we highlight the achievement of these drivers. Across the ever-growing world of social media, this provides yet another method of attracting new audiences and gaining new fans as we approach our third decade with the series.”
