British Touring Car Championship calendar gets minor tweak for 2018

British Touring Car Championship organisers have revealed a largely unchanged 10-round calendar for the series' 60th anniversary season in 2018

British Touring Car Championship calendar gets minor tweak for 2018

The schedule features only one change from this year's, with Knockhill and Rockingham swapping places.

Apart from that tweak the composition of the new calendar is identical to the old one, with Brands Hatch once again playing host to both the season opener on April 8 and the finale on September 30.

Some venues have had their dates shifted, however - Donington Park has been moved back a week, while Thruxton, Oulton Park and Croft are all now two weeks later, shortening the summer break.

The pre-season launch will be held at Donington Park on 27 March.
