Rules remain largely unchanged after hugely successful season
The sporting regulations for the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship have been confirmed following the annual end of season TOCA/BTCC teams’ meeting.
After an overwhelmingly positive 2015 campaign that was widely acclaimed by drivers, teams and fans alike, there is just one change of note.
In 2015, the BTCC trialled a system whereby the race two grids were set using fastest lap times from race one – however the consensus is that the increased ballast levels and soft tyres are having the desired effect as far as producing differing race results. Therefore, the race two starting positions will revert to being based upon the finishing order in race one.
TOCA also advised the teams that applications for any TOCA BTCC Licence (TBL) that may become available will only be considered if accompanied by complete details relating to the additional car, driver and funding. Should a TBL application be approved and any of the details provided subsequently change prior to the season starting, TOCA may immediately withdraw the licence and re-issue it to another applicant. As previously advised to the teams, any applications for additional TBLs must be lodged by the end of this month.
Series Director Alan Gow said: “The fact that there are so few amendments to the BTCC sporting regulations for 2016 is testament to the regulations we already have in place. As far as the TBLs are concerned, I’m not yet sure exactly how many additional licences will be available until next month, but I do know it will be very, very few and that they are highly sought-after.”
