National motor sport looks set to get the green light to resume from August after both of Britain’s leading series unveiled reworked calendars planning a summer start.
Both the British Touring Car Championship and the British GT Championship have produced reworked schedules, which should allow both series to complete 90 per cent of their planned seasons, with the campaigns running from August 1 until late into November.
The coronavirus pandemic had led Motorsport UK to suspend all organising permits until at least June 30. However the governing body has stated that it is keen to get the sport back underway as soon as is safely possible. However, both revised calendars remain provisional pending government measures, and it is still unknown if attendance at the events will be either allowed or limited.
