The BTCC calendar for 2014 will remain largely unchanged, with nine of the UK’s premier race circuits hosting race days between March and October.
The racing season kicks off on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit in Kent, which will host the first three of the championship’s 30 races. The season will also close at Brands Hatch, but the cars will then run on its full Grand Prix layout. Cementing the current popularity of the BTCC, ITV has confirmed it will continue to show every race in high definition on ITV4, with qualifying shown live on ITV.com.
