DOUBLE PODIUM AND POINTS LEAD FOR WSR AND BMW AT HAMPSHIRE SPEEDBOWL

WSR and BMW remain ahead in the battle for the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship thanks to a double-podium finish on a hard day of racing at the UK’s fastest circuit, Thruxton almost a week ago (27/28 August). Drivers’ Championship leader Colin Turkington and Stephen Jelley finished second and third in the last race of the day in their BMW 330e M Sports, keeping Team BMW ahead in the race for the Teams’ crown. It also helped strengthen BMW’s lead in the Manufacturers’ title race. From there, he recovered well to climb to 12th by the chequered flag; a result that puts him fourth in the standings – 23 points away from the series lead with six races to go. I’m pleased to leave Thruxton with the points I have when you consider where we were after qualifying. “When we got to the end of race two and I was only ten points off the championship lead, I was really happy. From there, it was just a case of getting back whatever points I could.
