It is with much sadness that BTCCPages learned of the death of Will Hoy. Will, a former BTCC champion, team manager and a distinctive character within the paddock, will be sadly missed by so many. He was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour earlier this year and passed away in the presence of family and close friends at a London hospital on Thursday 19 December.

DTM @ Donington: Photo Feature

The third weekend in May saw the DTM pay a visit to the UK, with the teams and drivers taking on the Donington Park circuit. It provided an opportunity to see touring car racing a little different to that seen in the BTCC, with V8 engines being the order of the day. Ex-Formula 1 driver Jean Alesi took a pair of race wins, in only his third touring car meeting. Click the links below for full results from the weekend, and for our special feature photo galleries.
