The Kwik British Touring Car Championship heads to Thruxton for the first of two visits this year, with rounds seven, eight and nine taking place this weekend.

With events at Brands Hatch and Donington Park already in the books, the fastest circuit in the country is one of the standout events on the TOCA calendar – pushing the limits of both driver and car to the maximum.

A test session in early April gave a majority of teams the opportunity to get their eye in around the infamous 2.35 mile layout and all will be keen to put what they learnt into practice when points make prizes.

The TOCA support package will once again be in attendance but with a different feel to it, the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship and the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost the only regular fixtures.

Joining the fray for the weekend is the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge and the Mini Se7en Championship, the latter celebrating its 60th year of the iconic Mini and become the first category since the Super Touring Car Championship to join the well-established TOCA support package.
