EXTRA 500 TICKETS MADE AVAILABLE FOR BTCC SEASON LAUNCH
The 2022 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship’s much-anticipated Season Launch will welcome fans to Thruxton Circuit on 13 April as teams and drivers hit the track for the final official test ahead of the campaign.
Whilst circuit owners BARC had set a cap on the number of attendees, they have today made a further 500 tickets available to fans due to huge demand. Spectators are required to register for the free-to-attend event here in order to secure their tickets.
With the test set to take place just ten days before Donington Park’s season opener (23/24 April), a packed itinerary of testing is planned, with six hours of track action scheduled between 1000‑1300 and 1400‑1700.
Fans will have the chance to get up close and personal with 2022 machinery and meet some of their favourite drivers during the lunch break as the BTCC’s hugely popular Pit Lane Walkabout returns, while food and refreshments will be served throughout the day at the Thruxton Centre.
Commentary will also be broadcast throughout the day on Radio Thruxton 87.7FM so that fans can keep abreast of the action and driver interviews, whilst TSL Timing will provide live timing for the duration.
Gates will open to the public from 1000 as testing gets underway, with further information to follow.
