Pre-’66 Touring Cars secure BTCC support slot

The CTCRC has secured a coveted guest slot on the British Touring Car Championship support bill for its Pre-’66 Touring Car championship at Croft on 27/28 July 2024.

Three non-championship races will be held over the weekend in front of a big BTCC crowd, taking the place of British Formula 4 which has added an overseas round to its calendar.

The event will form part of the CTCRC’s 50th anniversary celebrations, with at least one of the Pre-’66 races set to have live television coverage on ITV4.

Pat Kenneally’s Lotus Cortina was a Pre-’66 frontrunner at Croft in August 2023

“We’re absolutely delighted that our Pre-’66 championship has been invited to race alongside British Touring Cars at Croft,” said CTCRC chairman Stuart Caie.

“It’s a fitting way for the club to celebrate its 50th anniversary by showcasing the kind of cars that raced in the early years of the BTCC alongside their modern counterparts.

“It’s fantastic recognition for our club, the drivers and all our volunteers who work hard to provide a home for touring cars of all ages to race.

“It’s also appropriate that it’s at Croft, a BARC circuit, given our long association with the club. It should be a wonderful weekend.”
