BTCC Podium Predictor powered by IHG® Rewards Club set for debut
Long-standing Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship partner IHG® Rewards Club will launch its Podium Predictor this season with the promise of big prizes, bragging rights and the chance to outwit the pundits.
Before the Podium Predictor goes live on 11 April, from the Donington Park weekend, fans can follow the form book from the first three rounds or make their own forecast as they get the opportunity to have their say to decide who they think will finish first, second and third in each round and who’ll take the fastest lap.
Predictions will be pitted up against those made by celebrity pundits, and a prize pool will be up for grabs at the end of every race weekend for those who come closest to the real result.
Anyone who manages to outdo the pundits’ score will be entered into a draw to win 50,000 IHG Rewards Club points – enough for a two-night break at a Holiday Inn, framed artwork of all ten BTCC circuits and four tickets to any future race weekend on the BTCC calendar.
Any fan who correctly predicts every podium result and every fastest lap on a weekend will be in line to win the one million IHG Rewards Club points, which is equal to twenty nights in any InterContinental Hotel & Resorts, or even more nights at all of IHG’s many other great hotel brands located around the world.
Adrian White, Director of Global Brand Partnership’s at IHG, is excited at the prospect of the Podium Predictor: “The British Touring Car Championship offers unparalleled racing entertainment for its legions of fans. With such a level playing field and high-drama, it’s the perfect proposition for our Podium Predictor.
“The BTCC Podium Predictor powered by IHG Rewards Club is an ideal opportunity for fans to win a bundle of top prizes and the all-important bragging rights! We’re thrilled to give fans the opportunity to further engage with a Championship that prides itself on involving those who have the sport at heart.”
Alan Gow, Series Director of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship said: “The BTCC Podium Predictor powered by IHG Rewards Club is a great initiative. I’ve no doubt our fans will enjoy trying to predict the outcome of our hugely competitive races – and the prizes on offer from IHG make it incredibly appealing for them to have a go!”
