Revised dates for the 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship have been released.

A heavily-condensed 27 race championship is scheduled to begin at Donington Park on the first weekend in August.  Three rounds of the championship are scheduled to take place on that opening race weekend, followed by a hectic run of four events in the next five weeks taking in Brands Hatch, Oulton Park, and Knockhill.  The plan is for race weekends at Thruxton and Silverstone in September, Croft and Snetterton in October, with the final three races taking place on the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit on 14/15 November.  All races will be screened live on the ITV network.

The competition’s Chief Executive Alan Gow said, “These are incredibly challenging times for the whole nation.  Through it all, we have seen the importance of being both adaptable and pragmatic, and the BTCC is no different.  So it’s entirely logical to draft plans and lock-in our provisional dates, with the ability to amend those if circumstances dictate.”
