2017 BTCC calendar announced with four MSV events

Wednesday, June 15 2016

The 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship calendar has been released, with four events at MSV circuits.

The BTCC calendar has been announced several months early to help avoid clashes in the UK motorsport diary. The championship retains its traditional schedule, with Brands Hatch opening and closing the season, starting with the Indy circuit on 1/2 April. The finale, almost certainly a title-decider, will take place on 30 September and 1 October.

Oulton Park's late spring round, usually the championship's most popular event, will take place slightly earlier next year, on 20/21 May.

Snetterton will once again host the first event after the BTCC's summer break, and will take place on 29/30 July. Tickets to all of these rounds will be on sale later this year.

BTCC Series Director, Alan Gow said: "With the BTCC's enormous and ever-increasing popularity, this format has continually proven to be a real winner."

"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".
