The BTCC organisation today announced Donington Park as the circuit for the 2013 Media Day, switching from Silverstone.
“We’re delighted that Donington will host the launch of our 2013 season. As well as providing fantastic racing, Donington is also a great circuit for teams to test their latest cars and developments on – so it will be interesting to see who sets the pace on Media Day, in the afternoon’s officially timed test session,” said Series Director Alan Gow to btcc.net.
Donington Park hosts the second race of the year in the 2013 calendar on the 21st of April.
“Donington lies at the heart of British motor sport and we saw great racing from the stars of the BTCC here last April. Now to be invited to host the famous BTCC Media Day is not only an honour but also a great compliment to the staff here in acknowledging how far the continuing revival of the circuit has come since we re-opened in autumn 2010. We look forward to a great day here on 21 March,” said Donington Managing Director Christopher Tate.
The Media Day will as usual feature a test day for the BTCC teams as well as an opportunity for media and fans to get a first glimpse of the coming season.
