Colin Turkington says it "feels so good to go racing again" as he prepares to begin his bid for a record fifth British Touring Car title at Donington.

"You can test and prepare all day long, and we have done that, but the buzz of competition and the excitement the BTCC brings is hard to find anywhere else," says the defending champion from Portadown, who has spent the lockdown with his wife Louise and young sons Lewis and Adam at their home in Buckinghamshire.

He recognises it is going to be different with Covid protocols in place, including no interaction between teams and a last-minute decision to exclude all spectators.
