Reigning Dunlop MSA British Touring Car champion Andrew Jordan will be changing his approach to racing and throwing caution to the wind at Knockhill this weekend, as he tries to get his 2015 title challenge back on track.
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.
Gordon Shedden may be making another strong title challenge this season, but he won't be the only driver racing on home soil at Knockhill this weekend. We take a look at the season so far of three Scottish drivers in the Independents category.
On pole position 12 months ago at Knockhill, Rob Austin believes the Fife circuit’s qualifying session for this Sunday’s three British Touring Car races will be “the craziest of all time” with 30-plus drivers all hunting a clear flying lap around the venue’s rollercoaster-like track lay-out.
BTCC Series Director Alan Gow has unveiled the championship's race calendar for next season, which once again visits nine of the UK's best circuits.
The calendar is similar to the 2013 calendar with June's visit to Oulton Park in Cheshire using the Island layout rather than the Shell layout used this season. That change came after criticism that the longer circuit formation produced dull races with drivers unable to overtake.
Three-time race-winner Aron Smith will remain with Team BMR for the 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship after penning a deal to race with the fledgling squad for at least another season.
