TURKINGTON AND TEAM BMW AIM TO MAINTAIN WINNING FORMULA
It’s been non stop action so far, and as the British Touring Car Championship heads to Cheshire, another episode of thrilling racing is just around the corner.
Taking place this weekend, merely a fortnight after Rounds 7, 8 and 9, the schedule of events has been coming thick and fast for teams and drivers. With it’s high profile status and three races per day, the BTCC easily stands out as one of the most intense motorsport series in the world.
Oulton Park is always one of the ‘fan favourites’ on the BTCC calendar. Nestled in the stunning Cheshire countryside with a glorious campsite overlooking the track, it proves a popular choice for both friends and families.
Colin Turkington and Team BMW head into this weekend buoyed by their recent breakthrough win at Thruxton. Taking two victories at a circuit that has been unfavourable to them in the past, the team converted early struggles into a history making day for BMW. Added to the challenge was the new Dunlop 2017 HARD tyre that extracted everything it could from the Team BMW engineering team.
Recap on rounds 7, 8 and 9 at Thruxton here.
