BTCS Entry & Calendar News
PRC, the organizing committee of the BTCS series, announced some
news and a final calendar on January 11. Two Zolder and four Spa
races, with the 12 hours at Spa in June being the top event, make
up the calendar.
May 26-27-28 Zolder
June 9-10-11 12 Heures de Spa
July 7-8-9 Spa-Francorchamps (25 Hours Fun Cup Event)
September 9-10 Zolder (Truck GP)
October 13-14-15 Spa-Francorchamps
The potential entry looks very good, with around 10 silhouettes,
some good GT entries and a surprise one from Renault Belgium.
Reigning champions MI return with both the Jaguar
X-Types, but probably a third car too. This will not be a Jaguar
but probably a Korean make seen in ice racing… BMW will also
be well represented. KS Motorsport again enters two M3 Silhouettes,
one maybe an E94, while Marc Lupant and Pierre Piron both enter
M3s. Audi, Peugeot and Opel will all have one car in the series
as Audi Belgium, Patrick Paiez and Erik Qvick enter respectively
an A4, 406 and Astra silhouette. The latter leaves the Belcar as
noted earlier. The departure of the mighty Ultima is without doubt
a loss for Belcar.
is another make to join the Belgian Touring Car series, with or
and maybe two Renault Mégane Trophy cars. These ex- World
Series Trophy cars will be prepared in endurance configuration in
order to beat the real silhouettes and GTs. A good source confirmed
the names of Vincent Vosse and Fred Bouvy as being the driver pair.
Last but not
least is the GT field. BPO-Monroe announced this week the arrival
of two Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge cars. Jonathan Moury / Sylvie
Delcour and Laurent Richard / TBA (photo) will run in the beautiful
Italian machines (below).
The new team
of Rudi Penders will also enter two 996 Cup Porsches, as will several
