Tuesday, September 20 2011

Brands Hatch will host the crucial opening and closing rounds of the 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship following the release of the provisional calendar.

The popular saloon car championship has once again enjoyed a season of thrills and spills attracting vast crowds up and down the country. The 2012 season should be no different and will see the BTCC kick off the campaign at Kent's Brands Hatch Indy Circuit on 31 March - 1 April, before returning to the legendary Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit for the often pivotal final round of the championship on 20/21 October.

The opening and final rounds a the famous Kent circuit have provided countless moments which will live long in the minds of BTCC fans. The last time the circuit hosted the final round saw an epic four-way battle for the title between Jason Plato, Gordon Shedden, Matt Neal and Tom Onslow-Cole. Chevrolet's Plato came through to win the title becoming the most successful driver in terms of race victories in the championship's history. The previous year witnessed Colin Turkington come through to claim the crown, sparking emotional scenes.
