It’s time to reveal the new calendar for #BDC2020. We couldn’t have expected to face the challenges this year has thrown at us and it’s been difficult to keep everything held together, but our commitment to the fans, drivers and partners is not something we’ve taken lightly.
We’re happy to confirm our scaled back calendar this year will be –
August 7th, 8th & 9th – Driftland
September 10th,11th & 12th – Three Sisters
October 2nd, 3rd & 4th – Teesside Autodrome
November 6th & 7th – Buxton
This has been created on the basis that we still want to run a championship this season, and also set ourselves up to take a step forwards to something even bigger in 2021.
These events will all be streamed exclusively over our new media platform, BDC Insider.
The first event will be a “contactless event” and is taking place behind closed doors and with new social distancing guidelines in place, we are taking the safety of everyone involved very seriously.
We will have more information on tickets, ticket holders and how you can be a part of this new calendar following on from this press release.
You’ll notice that the “Format” event due to be held Eventcity is no longer on the calendar, when we first looked at a Manchester venue it was to create an exciting new opportunity for the championship, central Manchester gives an unbelievable footfall plus brought a new venue in for the 2020 calendar. In lieu of everything that has gone on, we must seriously consider the sustainability of the championship. With that in mind we will be postponing the “Format” launch until 2021, we will release more info on this in the future.
The other event missing from the calendar is Battle Royale, due to be held at Adrian Flux Arena in Norfolk, we still have hope to run a standalone Battle Royale later in the year, but we believe the Battle Royale is an in person event and until we know it is safe to have a crowd at the event we are not looking to secure a date. More updates will follow on this via the Battle Royale social media, so please make sure you are following so you don’t miss it.
