Rule Changes For 2020
Maximum success ballast will be increased to 60kg, a 6kg increase from 2019. It will reduce in 6kg increments.
Before qualifying ballast will be allocated to the top ten in the championship standings. It will then be re-allocated twice on race day, after race one and after race two.
Goodyear will replace Dunlop as the BTCC’s sole tyre supplier. Drivers will also be required to use all three available tyre compounds at Snetterton and Croft.
They will no longer be required to specify the race they use the option tyre before Saturday’s qualifying, allowing for more flexibility in strategy on race day.
Snetterton will host a trial of a new shootout qualifying format with the top ten in regular qualifying advancing to a ten-minute shootout session to decide positions 1st to 10th on the grid.
