The Baltic Touring Car Championship season starts this weekend!

The 2024 Baltic Touring Car Championship is just around the corner and the  racing action starts already on 4th May. The race will also be a round of Estonian, Lithuanian and Latvian national championships.


More than 90 participants in BaTCC classes – BMW 325 CUP, Baltic GT, Baltic Touring Cars, ABC Race, V1600 and Nankang 2h endurance academy will be joined by Formula Historic with beautiful historical formulas. Lack of participants in the Baltic 4h Endurance Championship forced to cancel the endurance competition, and also NEZ Porsche Sprint Challenge series cancelled their season in the last minute but most of the cars will be in action for sprint racing or Nankang 2h Endurance series.


Friday will be day of testing, free practices and Qualifying, while racing action will start on Saturday from 11:00 with 10 sprint races in a row but the day will end with 2h Nankang Endurance academy race.


The most anticipated race as usually is from the previous years will be the BMW 325 CUP where 31 participant from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland and France has entered the competition. While 2023 champ Leo Messenger will not race this season, the main rivals Ricards Subeckis and Romet Reisin are ready to battle out for the victory. Can’t rule out also names like Julius Kirsis, Paulius Urbonavicius, Aurimas Mistautas and others. The racing is unpredictable and that means new heroes are always ready to enter the battle for leading positions. BMW 325 CUP Race 1 is scheduled to start 12:25, while second race will start 15:55.


Many fast, powerful, and exclusive race cars will start in the GT class race. The most powerful and basically unlimited class BGT PRO will feature cars like Mercedes-Benz “AMG GT3 EVO” (Karolis Stasiukynas), Lamborghini “Huracan ST EVOII” (Dovydas Ketvirtis), Nissan “180 SX” (Gediminas Baksys), Audi “TT-RS” (Edvinas Einikis). Five cars have entered the Porsche 992 class where modern Porsche “GT3 CUP 992” spec cars will race. 17 cars so far in the united GT class.


A true revival and boom are in the V1600 class where 9 participants have entered the competition and with many new names the outcome on the track is unpredictable now, meaning good racing and action for the fans.


ABC Race from 2024 is part of the BaTCC series and around 10 cars will start on the grid in a race together with V1600 cars, making the grid almost 20 cars big. ABC Race is a budget class where complete circuit racing rookies start their first steps in the motorsport journey.

Total of six cars entered in 2000 class, three in the 1600 class and two entries in 3000 class. The participant list will grow as some more cars are expected.


17 very various cars have applied to the Nankang 2h Endurance academy class that will end the racing event on Saturday night. Starting from small 1,6l race cars up to cars like Porsche Cayman GT4 clubsport and ex TCR cars. Still waiting for some more entries.
