Brands Hatch Grand Prix Date Switches To Indy Circuit

British Touring Car Championship Series Director Alan Gow has today announced that the BTCC's Brands Hatch race meeting on 21/22 August will now be staged on the venue's shorter Indy circuit and not the full-length Grand Prix circuit as originally intended.

Alan Gow commented: "This decision has been taken at the insistence of the circuit owner, and despite my best efforts to retain our use of the GP circuit.

"The circuit owner believes it will be in his best interests to reserve its use for other activities, rather than allowing Britain's premier championships to race on that track. This change is not solely to the BTCC round, as I believe other major British championships have also been moved off their planned useage of the GP circuit."
