Brits on Tour Issue No:1 - Thruxton


The Kwikfit British Touring Car 2019 Magazine produced by The Sandbag Times

Editor’s Notes

Firstly, a warm welcome to the new SBT supplement dedicated entirely to the Kwikfit

British Touring Car Championship and support races for 2019. As the editor of the

UK’s leading veterans magazine, I have been privilleged and honoured to have been

a part of the BTCC for the past two years. Mostly working with Team Dynamics and

Matt Neal who has been, and still is, our proud patron and veterans ambassador.

Matt and the whole team has done an incredible amount of work over the past few

years supporting our heroes despite an incredibly busy schedule. Something we have

been so grateful for.

However, prior to the start of this season, I was fortunate enough to be accepted as

BTCC accredited press. Very quickly, my thoughts started to revolve around on how

I could give the entire field fair reporting yet sustain the fantastic relationship we

have with Matt and Team Dynamics. The answer was to write a separate supplement

dedicated to the championship while keeping Matt and the team in SBT. Who says

you can’t have your cake and eat it.

So on to the Kwikfit BTCC itself. I have had my nose firmly planted in Touring cars

since the first drivers were announced for the 2019 season. From the start of the year

the BTCC has promised to be an exciting season. It certainly has not disappointed.

Competition is tighter than ever with teams and drivers having to work their socks off

to find every hundredth of a second to get their cars and drivers as far up the grid as

possible. It is that tight!

Thruxton is always a special place for me, mostly because I was stationed just a few

miles up the road in Tidworth during my army days but also for the sheer speed and

excitement the track produces. As a Team Dynamics fan, we obviously had a great

day with Dan getting on the podium twice and Matt having a good point scoring day

but there were oh, so many more stories.

So let’s see if we can bring you all of the latest news, pit gossip, interviews and

excitement from the UK’s premier motor racing events. Pablo.
