Was going to say that was quick, but then remembered that due to the season starting late, we are already in June. Nice to see it mixed around a bit, although I wish they would use a second event at Donny, Oulton or Silverstone on a different layout, rather than a second Thruxton meeting again

I quite like Thruxton although there is a couple of other tracks I'd rather see get a 2nd date above it.

A 2nd Donington date could possibly use the full track? Or is that not possible with all the support races using that section as make shift garages?

Come to think about it, they could also use the Snetterton outer circuit

Or a 2nd date at Oulton using one of the other layouts.

I'd vote for any of the above. I would like to see Oulton Fosters or Snetterton 200. I wonder what happened to the plan of using the Silverstone International Circuit? Has that opportunity vanished now?

This is what left me wondering as well. Quite a shame to be honest, there aren't many tracks eligible for BTCC but at least this could be some variation. Nothing against Thruxton, it's a fine track but nothing justifies going there twice.
As for Silverstone's international loop it's quite a shame that we were close to seeing BTCC go there and after Covid came there was no word about it anymore.
Probably a reason was mentioned somewhere but my memory may be too short!

Could the double visit to Thruxton have anything to do with it also being the BARC's own circuit?

There’s no other reason.

No, they use the paddock for that; on National Circuit days the Loop is used as the assembly area for support races. For big international meetings on the national circuit the return leg of the Loop is sometimes used for the TV trucks and ancillary bits and pieces.

I may have my circuits mixed up but I seem to remember the last time they raced on the 200 rather than 300 it was such a boring race they said they wouldn't do it again.

The series hasn’t used the 200 since the track got changed

That was when they used the full Oulton Park International layout that includes Shell Oil Bend rather than the usual Island layout.

I was thinking the same. 2020 meeting was dropped following the Covid enforced calendar shuffle when supposedly Silverstone had no dates available. I can partly understand why it wasn't back for 2021 with some uncertainty over more Covid restrictions, but I was expecting it back in 2022.

After the big fuss they made when the 2020 date was first announced it all seems to have been quietly swept under the carpet.

As much as it would be nice to have a different circuit to Thruxton hosting a second event, it all comes down to who actually wants to or can put a second event on. I know in previous years the option has been there for other circuits but in the absence of any takers, Thruxton gets it
