Series organisers of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, TOCA, have today (May 31) released the official calendar for the 2023 season.

Firmly established as the UKโ€™s flagship motor sport series, the championship will once again comprise of 30 races across ten events at eight of the countryโ€™s top venues – with Donington Park most notably being handed a second event.

The Leicestershire venue will lift the curtain on the new campaign in late April before staging a second round in August on the Grand Prix circuit, a layout that the BTCC hasnโ€™t used in more than two decades.ย 

Brands Hatch Indy, Snetterton, Thruxton and Oulton Park occupy dates during May and June before the annual summer break.

Croft is then scheduled to kick off the second half of the season before the series makes its annual visit to north of the border Knockhill. A second visit to Donington Park follows that before the penultimate weekend at Silverstone in late September and the finale on the legendary Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit in early October.

BTCC Chief Executive, Alan Gow, said: โ€œIโ€™m very pleased to be able to confirm our 2023 British Touring Car Championship calendar. Weโ€™ve never announced a following season schedule as early as May before, which provides great forward planning for our teams, partners, fans and all stakeholders.โ€
