Knockhill has retained its late August date in a redrawn British Touring Car Championship calendar.
The biggest event on the Fife circuit’s annual calendar will now fit into a 27-race programme across nine events, announced on Monday by series organisers TOCA.
They say the revised schedule remains dependent on future government directives relating to the coronavirus pandemic.
Knockhill will host rounds 10,11 and 12 of the championship on the weekend of August 29/30.
The revised season is now scheduled to start on the first weekend in August at Donington Park, which begins a run of four events in just five weekends, with Brands Hatch, Oulton Park and Knockhill completing the opening month of action.
September events at Thruxton and Silverstone are then followed by October race dates at Croft and Snetterton.
A second event at Silverstone, originally scheduled on the International circuit, was unable to make it into the compressed season.
The 2020 Kwik Fit BTCC season – as originally planned – will conclude on the world-famous Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit in Kent, but at the later date of November 14/15.
BTCC chief executive, Alan Gow said: “These are incredibly challenging times for the whole nation.
“Through it all, we have seen the importance of being both adaptable and pragmatic, and the BTCC is no different. So it’s entirely logical to draft plans and lock-in our provisional dates, with the ability to amend those if circumstances dictate.
“Obviously this calendar presents a hectic four months, with three separate back-to-back events and four events in the first five weeks alone.
“But our teams and drivers are fully up for the challenge – there’s such enormous energy, enthusiasm and passion for the BTCC that everyone will want to just roll up their sleeves and get the action underway when the time comes to go racing.”
