The 2014 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship is approaching the starting grid and we can’t wait for the green light to start what promises to be a classic season.
Five Toyota Avensis will compete on the 31-car grid, making it the most popular car choice for the championship.

Behind the wheel of the NGTC (Next Generation Touring Car) specification Avensis cars will be Lea Wood for Houseman Racing, Speedworks Motorsport’s Tom Ingram, James Cole and Glynn Geddie who are both competing for United Autosports and Simon Belcher of Handy Motorsport.
The season will kick off at Brands Hatch this weekend, and take in 10 of the UK’s top tracks and 30 races until the grand finale on the Brands GP circuit in October.
Free practice and qualifying sessions are held on the Saturday of each weekend, while the three BTCC races run on Sundays.
