BTCC blasts across Forth road bridge

The Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship blasted into Scotland in style today with an incredible parade across the Forth Road Bridge.

The four current Scottish-based BTCC drivers – Gordon Shedden, Aiden Moffat, Glynn Geddie and Dave Newsham – all made the crossing in their flame-spitting machines, and were joined by a spectacular cavalcade of cars once piloted by the legendary Jim Clark, who won the BTCC 50 years ago.
