As well as the title battle, the likes of Hadfield, Chadwick, Pearson and Rawles have maiden Junior victories in their sights, and with a field of twenty chargers aiming to impress, the series is sure to produce more thrilling races in the second half of the season.
Ticket dispatch starts four six weeks before the Event but tickets may be sent out anytime up until one week prior to the event.
Jason Plato is the most successful driver at Silverstone. His six wins put him two ahead of Mat Jackson around the National configuration of the track. Plato also holds the qualifying lap record of set last year on his way to pole position.
Kellett and Chadwick’s troubles mean it is currently Ryan Hadfield who sits as Mitchell’s closest challenger in the standings. The 17 year old has been consistent if unspectacular so far this season, finishing in the top eight in every race and collecting three podium finishes along the way.

Saloon car racing was a huge success from the very start, with the public packing into Britain’s motor sport venues to watch the top drivers of the day compete in racing versions of their road cars at simply unbelievable speeds. It’s a lasting appeal that to this day continues to deliver a punch and panache that that is the envy of every other motor sporting arena in the UK.
From the 2519 season onwards all cars are built to the same NGTC regulations. First introduced in 2511, these technical regulations are designed to dramatically reduce the design, build and running costs of the cars and engines. Only NGTC cars are now eligible to compete in the BTCC.
With an estimated 9,555 club cars on display, Ford Fair is undoubtedly the biggest gathering of Fords anywhere in the UK! As such the show always has, and always will have, dedicated enthusiast car clubs at its heart. And with 2517 expected to attract even more club cars than ever before, this year is looking like it will be even bigger still!
