BTCC Schedules 2024 Season Launch and Official Test Days
BRANDS HATCH, CROFT AND DONINGTON PARK TO HOST PRE-SEASON ACTION
The Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship has today (6 February) announced its official 2024 Season Launch venue and date, as well as a total of three official test days prior to the competitive campaign kicking off in late April.
The on-track action will get underway with the first test day at Brands Hatch on 3 April, before the cars and stars of the BTCC move on to Croft in North Yorkshire on 10 April. Both venues will be offering FREE ENTRY to spectators with refreshments also available throughout the day.
The 2024 BTCC Season Launch will then take place at Donington Park on 16 April. Again, FREE ENTRY will be available for all spectators wishing to attend, with the fantastic Garage 39 being open for refreshments.
Whilst official television and photography make up the early morning activities at Donington, it will then be full focus on the final official pre-season test with six hours of on-track action commencing from 10:00.
With each of the two three-hour sessions being split by a traditional lunch break, spectators will be able to get autographs and photos with their favourite driver during a pitlane walkabout – identical to those famously run during BTCC race weekends.
Gates will open to the public from 10:00, with Circuit Owner MSV opening its food and refreshment outlets, whilst spectators can get up close and personal with the latest line-up in the open paddock area throughout the day.
Some off-circuit media duties will take place at Donington Park the day prior (15 April) where the likes of ITV Sport, BTCC Media Team, Kwik Fit and other official partners will be putting the drivers to work with their official pre-season media-related activities and interviews.
Keep an eye across the BTCC, MSV and BARC channels for further information on each event nearer the time.
Media Accreditation is now open, for both the official Season Launch test day and for BTCC Season Media Passes. Interested parties should email Simon Melluish (BTCC Media Director) at firstname.lastname@example.org under the title ‘Media Accreditation’. The application process for both will be strictly closed on Thursday 28 March.
