2017 British Touring Car Championship calendar revealed
The British Touring Car Championship has revealed details of the calendar for the 2017 season, with the order unchanged from previous years, with the season starting and ending in Brands Hatch and visiting Donington Park, Thruxton, Oulton Park, Croft, Snetterton, Knockhill, Rockingham and Silverstone in that order.
The championship organisers say consistency is key for the national championship, which is enticing record crowds this season as well as a first full-time entry of 32 cars.
“With the BTCC’s enormous and ever-increasing popularity, this format has continually proven to be a real winner,” said series director Alan Gow.
“It provides our teams, partners, venues, huge TV audience and of course our hundreds of thousands of fans with a consistent and proven calendar that always delivers a great championship.”
“We have defined our 2017 calendar as early as possible with this unprecedented mid-June announcement to help other UK motor sport events in reducing the amount of clashes that can inevitably occur.”
