Butcher Carves Through The Pack For First Podium Of The Season At Snetterton

Snetterton has historically been a happy hunting ground for TOYOTA GAZOO Racing UK, and that theme continued last weekend (20/21 May) as Rory Butcher produced a determined drive, carving through the field to take the runners-up spot in Round 9 of the 2023 Kwik Fit British Touring Cars Championship. However, he was then forced out on lap five when a stone flicked up by a car in front put a hole in his radiator. Butcher advanced a spot to eighth in race two on the medium rubber, as Collard set about climbing his way up from the very back. “Everybody in the team has been working their absolute socks off, and it was so good to bring some silverware back for them all and some buzz back to the garage,” said Butcher, “Our plan for Sunday was to put all our eggs in one basket and focus on race three, and that strategy paid off.”. That was really frustrating, because there were only a handful of cars on the softs in race three.
