    bttc touring cars

    .
    The HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship – makes its only trip of the year to the North-East at the Croft circuit on Sunday 1 June.
    Rounds 13, 14 and 15 of the BTCC headline the bill and includes a further seven races from supporting categories to keep the fans entertained.
    The circuit’s pricing strategy also means great value for money entertainment for not just to enthusiasts but also families. Adult tickets cost just £22.00 and admission for children aged 15 and under is FREE. <--- theres that word again.. cheers
    The price includes entry to the paddock and popular morning Pit Lane Walkabout session when the public can meet the BTCC stars for autographs, photos and give-aways. <---- more freebies.. Cool
    .
    Jason plato, who took his second win of the season at Thruxton in Hampshire yesterday 18th may will be looking for more of the same driving SEAT’s new diesel-powered Leon TDI, the 40-year-old currently lies second in the standings to Vauxhall’s Italian superstar Giovanardi who pipped him to last year’s crown. But with eight different winners from the season’s opening 12 races, predicting a winner will be near impossible.
    Also the Boldon-based team Robertshaw Racing which fields a Chevrolet Lacetti for Newcastle’s Harry Vaulkhard and a Honda Integra for Whitley bay's Alan Taylor.
    Vaulkhard, aged 22, will go into his home event off the back of his first points-scoring finish in what is his first season of racing in Britain’s toughest race championship.
    .
    so, thats june 1st, make a note of it.. gonna be a good one.. ( vroooooooom vrooooooooooom ) Cool
