BTCC finale will go ahead
TOCA, the organisers of the British Touring Car Championship has confirmed that this month's season finale at Brands Hatch will go ahead.
The Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport has ratified that 'Elite Sport' will be able to continue behind closed doors during this latest period of lockdown. The BTCC is included in that category."The BTCC has worked tirelessly to maintain the safety of its drivers, teams, staff and all personnel through its own strict protocols that actually exceed those of the government guidelines," said a statement.
"TOCA will continue to ensure those protocols are strictly adhered to, so as to provide a very safe and secure environment for all participants at our final event. "We salute the support and professionalism consistently shown by everyone involved in the BTCC, and acknowledge this is hugely positive news for our drivers, teams and suppliers whose livelihoods depend upon our events.
"Most importantly of all, it will particularly lift the spirits of the many hundreds of thousands of BTCC fans throughout the UK who will be able to watch the finale live on ITV4.
