It's that time of the year again when we are introduced to one of the most exciting racing series in Europe, the British Touring Car Championship. This close contact fast paced action pack racing series is back again this weeking for the 2013 season at the great Brands Hatch circuit. 

 

Will Gordon Sheddon be able to defend his title? Who are you supporting?

I have been a fan of the BTCC for a long time, I used to go to the races a lot when I was younger and I was a big fan of Rydell and his Volvo S40. These days, living in Spain, I can't go to the races but I now support Matt Neal, used to see him racing in his Team Dynamics Nissan Primera and even got to sit in his car back in the day. Below are some videos to wet your appetite :D

Interesting how the only car there this season that has to be tuned down to meet regulations is the VXR.

I think it'll be between the usual 3 suspects (Plato, Neal, Shedden). But for some reason I can see Matt Jackson having a really good season, he always seems to be a bit unlucky

A great qualifying session at Brands Hatch. With not even 2 laps complete there was an incident invlolving 4 cars causing a red flag, on the qualifying restart there were more spins than a waltzer. 

 

 

Here are the times, less than a second between the top 13, should be an awesome race tomorrow. Starting live at 10:45am on ITV4.

Yeah I felt sorry for him aswell, especially in the interview at the end although later on his team tweeted the car wasn't that bad so fingers crossed for Donnington Park.

DTM you say? :D I like motorsport but it is very rarely on normal TV, might start trying to watch it more via streams, so, might start trying to catch DTM :D Aswell as WRC and WTCC and of course the BDC, Formula D streams the races but sometimes the US times are too late for me :(
