Race calendar and results[edit]

On 8 September 2010, the British Touring Car Championship announced the race calendar for the 2011 season for all of the series competing on the TOCA package.[29] On 14 January 2011, Porsche released an amended calendar with the meeting at Croft being replaced by a single race in Germany at the Nürburgring Nordschleife as part of the Porsche Carrera World Cup.[30] As such, the championship will be contested over 19 races.
