BTCC 2016 rounds 1,2 and 3 at Brands Hatch Indy

Here we go again.

Return of the Orange Honda's, though one should probably not be there.

The other Honda's on the grid will not be the same spec as the works team with a mix of GPRM parts and older engines.

Speaking of a mix of parts, the MG's will be running with GPRM wishbones and uprights and RML subframes and steering, so not the full RML kit.

Will be interesting to see what the BMR/Subaru can do as they have gone for RWD.


Live qualifying at British Touring Cars Championship | BTCC - Sport from around 15:30 BST onwards Saturday 2nd April.

Live race day coverage on ITV4/ITV4 HD Sunday 3rd April, 10:15 - 18:15 BST.

Provisional BTCC race times:

Race 1 - 11:32 BST
Race 2 - 14:12 BST
Race 3 - 17:12 BST

And a good result for MG and Ashley Sutton and Josh Cook for the first race, finishing 4th & 5th respectively.

Excellent result by Sutton and Cook. Will be interesting to see how they cope with ballast on.

They seemed to cope remarkably well with the ballast, and put in some excellent defensive driving at times. Pity that Cook was one of many caught out by someone's spilt coolant, but Sutton still finished a highly creditable 6th. Great race.

Yes a good result from Sutton carrying the weight and a real shame for Cook being caught out by the liquid spilt on the track.

A good days racing I'd say. Things looking promising for MG but the Subaru boys are still off the pace, hopefully not for long, Plato and Turkington look very odd at the back!
Still a great spectacle though. Close, exciting racing, lots of skill on display and very entertaining. Perhaps Bernie Speckleton & Co could learn how to keep their audience!
