Epic five-way BTCC title battle to be decided at Brands Hatch

Friday, October 04 2019

The Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) will be decided on the full Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit once more, with the series gearing up for a spectacular five-way showdown on Sunday 13 October.

This is one of the Fawkham circuit's biggest events of the season, with three races including a reverse grid finale and a championship podium presentation on the grid which really set it apart. The biggest names in British car racing will all be on the grid for one of the south east's major autumn sporting fixtures.

This year's contenders include reigning champion Colin Turkington, who is chasing a record-equalling fourth crown in the UK's leading car racing series, following a superb season behind the wheel of the latest BMW 3 Series. Should Turkington succeed, he'll emulate BTCC legend Andy Rouse, and become just the second man with four titles in the series to his name.

Others in the hunt include Turkington's teammate, 2013 champion Andrew Jordan, who is aiming to bow out of the BTCC on a high ahead of potentially leaving the championship at the end of this year. Jordna has won an astonishing six races already this year, and would arguably be leading the championship were it not for accident damage which effectively ruled him out of the Oulton Park event.

Honda's Dan Cammish splits the two BMW drivers in the standings ahead of the Kent circuit's races, leading Jordan by just one point and trailing Turkington by 16. The Yorkshireman has been a frequent fixture on the podium throughout 2019 and heads into the last fixture of the season with a mass of momentum behind him.

The other drivers in the title picture are Josh Cook, who won the first race of the season at the same venue, albeit on the shorter Indy circuit, back in April and Tom Ingram who is the outsider in his Toyota Corolla.

There is local interest aplenty too, with the Wrotham-based Motorbase Performance team set to run three cars for Tom Chilton, Ollie Jackson and Michael Caine. Another Kent-based outfit is Team HARD which heads to Brands Hatch in a rich vein in form after Jack Goff claimed the squad's maiden victory last time out at Silverstone.

Drivers from the area are in abundance as well, notably Tunbridge Wells pair Jake Hill and Mike Bushell. Hill became a BTCC race-winner for the first time earlier this year, whilst Bushell is racing competitively after his initial 2019 opportunity fell through before he returned to the grid recently as a substitute.

Relative racing newcomer Michael Crees will be another Kentish personality to look out for as he aims to build upon a quietly impressive first season in the BTCC. Broastairs racer Crees claimed his first top-ten result last time out at Silverstone and he'll be eager to impress in front of a home crowd at Brands Hatch.

Other major names competing will include BTCC legends Matt Neal and Jason Plato, both of whom have raced well but without securing a victory this season, and the same can be said too for 2017 champion Ashley Sutton who remains one of the series' leading talents. Former F1 star Mark Blundell will be aiming to end the year on a positive note too after returning to the points in the most recent round.

In addition to the hype of the BTCC, there will be a full support race line-up and a full day's on-track entertainment.
