This week, we will play host to the start of the 60th anniversary celebrations of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) with a flurry of news from the series including driver announcements, car reveals and guest appearances on the dedicated feature.
The 2018 BTCC season will get underway on the feature, located in Hall 6 (Stand 6740), where you will be able to get up close to drivers and a selection of the latest machinery and a number of historic cars from the championship’s distinguished past.
The 2018 HMS Racing Alfa Romeo, Power Maxed Racing cars and Motorbase Ford Focus are set to take pride of place over the weekend. The feature will also play host to a selection of historic BTCC racers from the series’ past, including the legendary Rover SD1 raced by Steve Soper in 1983, an Alfa 155 which took Gabriele Tarquini to championship glory in 1994 and a Lotus Cortina.
The BTCC action doesn’t end on the feature though, as five BTCC champions are confirmed to be at the show. Reigning BTCC champion Ash Sutton will be performing various duties around the show, including interviews on the Autosport Stage and Motorsport News BTCC feature, in company with fellow champions Gordon Shedden, Colin Turkington, Matt Neal and Andrew Jordan.There will be further cars to be found on display across the show – keep your eyes peeled!
