The BTCC is Britain's largest race series. It visits nine of our best race circuits and features race-prepped sedans with 300bhp, 2 litre turbocharged engines. The cars look like their road-going counterparts but that's where the similarity ends.

I attended the race meeting at Thruxton circuit in Hampshire. It's the UK's fastest race track with average speeds of 113mph in the BTCC cars. There are 3 BTCC races with Porsche, Ginetta and Formula Ford races in-between.

Here's my report of a great day at the races.
