Countdown to Mondello BTCC begins.

17/04/03: Mondello Park's paddock in Ireland is all ready to greet the teams and drivers who will contest this Easter weekend's opening two rounds of the Green Flag MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Transporters from reigning champions Vauxhall and their rival manufacturers Honda, MG and Proton, as well as Independent Cup teams and the championship' s Production class field, are scheduled to arrive at the circuit for parking-up tomorrow morning (Good Friday).

Likewise, those of the TOCATour's permanent Formula Ford UK and Porsche Carrera Cup GB championships, who this weekend will provide supporting action along with Ireland's own hotly-contested Formula Ireland, Fiat Punto and Dunlop Super Car series.

After the support series' test sessions on Saturday, the action will officially get under way with timed qualifying on Sunday. The BTCC teams' 2003 season will begin with two 40-minute practice periods between 09.25 and 12.05, ahead of what is expected to be an action-packed 20-minute timed qualifying session at 14.55.
