Silverstone – Timetable, TV Times, Weather & Event Info
Silverstone, the home of British motorsport, provides the venue for rounds 25, 26 and 27 of the 2014 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
With a rich history, especially surrounding the BTCC, the Northamptonshire circuit could well be the place where this years champion is crowned. Colin Turkington enters the weekend with a 55-point lead over his nearest rival Jason Plato and only needs to outscore the MG driver by 12 points to clinch a second drivers’ crown.
The only amendment to the support package is the introduction of the Protyre Formula Renault Championship, which replaces the Renault UK Clio Cup.
Below you can find all the vital information and times you will need, whether you are heading trackside for the weekend or watching from the comfort of your own sofa.
The penultimate qualifying session of the current campaign will be streamed live on the ITV website, with David Addison and Tim Harvey providing commentary, from 15:40.
Steve Rider, Louise Goodman and co. begin live race day coverage on ITV4 from 11:00.
BBC Weather currently reports that both Saturday and Sunday will be dry with highs of 17 degrees.
Although we are little under a week away from the event, be sure to refer back to the weather report for any changes.
Roving grandstand tickets allow for spectators to soak up the action from a variety of different corners around the circuit and can be purchased from the Silverstone website. Children 15 and under go for free as well.
