The 2023 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season will start on April 22 next year with a race at Donington Park National Circuit – and later in the season it will take place on the longer GP circuit at the venue of the Leicestershire for the first time in 20 years.
Championship organizer TOCA has presented the 2023 racing schedule, which starts at Donington before heading to Brands Hatch, Snetterton, Thruxton, Oulton Park, Croft, Knockhill and Silverstone.
Like Donington, Kent’s Brands Hatch will host two separate events over the course of the season, with the Indy Circuit and a longer GP layout hosting races. The latter will be the season finale on October 8.
Next year will be the first time the BTCC has competed on the 2.5-mile Donington GP circuit since the season finale in 2002, when Alan Morrison took the checkered flag in his Honda Civic Type R.
BTCC Chief Executive Alan Gow said: “I am very pleased to be able to confirm our 2023 British Touring Car Championship calendar. We never announced a schedule for the next season as early as May, which provides excellent planning for our teams, partners, fans and all stakeholders.
