Gow extends BTCC deal

Alan Gow to remain in the role of BTCC series director for at least three more years
Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship series director Alan Gow has confirmed that he will remain in charge of the series for at least three more years, despite securing a new role with the FIA.

Gow, who has been back in charge of the BTCC since 2004, was named as the new president of the FIA's Touring Car Commission following a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council last week and will now be responsible for helping to shape the future regulations for the World Touring Car Championship.

Despite that, the Australian revealed during the BTCC's annual end-of-season awards last weekend that he will continue in his role as head of the British series and remained as committed as ever to ensuring that the championship goes from strength to strength.

“Certainly my new role at the FIA is going to take up more of my time, but it will not reduce my focus or commitment to the BTCC as it enters the next exciting chapter of its illustrious history,” he said. “The BTCC is a phenomenal sporting arena to be in and its future has never looked more secure or as exciting. I very much look forward to playing my part in its success over the next three years.”

The 2011 BTCC season will see the introduction of the Next Generation Touring Car into the series, while ITV will again provide live TV coverage – which includes the use of High Definition for the first time.
