- Calling all MX5 enthusiasts that want to see live racing in the form of Britain’s biggest motor racing championship at Oulton Park. The Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship 2019 main race day takes place on Sunday 30th June, and promises testosterone-fueled on-track excitement. This is a huge event in the racing calendar that attracts over 40,000 spectators every year! Ok so you can stay home and watch it on ITV4, but why would you? There really is no substitute for smelling burning tyres, hearing the roaring revs and seeing red hot brakes up close. And the price of the ticket includes a pit walk, so you can mingle with the racing champions, supporting crew and the flashy motors. Yesssss!
Other racing during this exhilarating day includes the Renault Clio Cup, Porsche Carrera Cup GB, Ginetta GT4 Supercup, Ginetta Juniors and British Formula 4. There will also be a Trade Zone and food outlets. Plus you can tune in your radio to live circuit commentary on 87.7FM and watch what is happening on the big screens when cars are out of sight.
So the plan is the same winning formula as last year. We meet at Lymm Truckstop WA13 0SP at 7am on Sunday 30th June. We leave in a beautiful topless MX5 convoy at 7.30am driving for a half hour via M6, M56, A49 direct to the circuit at CW6 9BW.
Then we get to park up as per the MX5 rules, set up our pitch overlooking ‘cascades’ with view of the worlds biggest telly, and hang out with our MX5 buddies all day whilst soaking up the circuit atmosphere.
Bring your chair, a hat and a picnic. Hope to see you there!
