Butcher hails ‘fantastic’ team effort after podium charge at Croft

Rory Butcher has paid tribute to ‘a fantastic effort’ by the entire Toyota GAZOO Racing UK crew in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at Croft last weekend (25/26 June), after converting a difficult qualifying into a race day celebration with a podium finish in the finale. “Croft is a circuit of two halves that require different attributes from the car,” said Butcher. I had no choice but to take a few risks in race one – since it’s not easy to overtake at Croft, you really need to make the most of the first lap – and we emerged from Turn Two in seventh. “The Corolla felt good at Croft, and while I never really got the lap together in qualifying, race one was going well. “I’ve got to say, if we’d started the weekend with the car we had after race two, I have no doubt we’d have been much further up the order.
