Oct 4 BTCC, Brands HatchThe closing round of 2009 looks set to be a gripping one. If you thought the BTCC lost its way when most of the manufacturer teams left, think again: this season has boasted some spectacularly close racing and plenty of mischief (much of it courtesy of Jason Plato). The big title battle is raging between reigning champ Fabrizio Giovanardi and Northern Irish lad Colin Turkington, but Plato could still grab himself a surprise second drivers’ trophy. Bring it onwww.btcc.net
