‘HOPES ARE HIGH’ FOR TOYOTA GAZOO RACING AT OULTON PARK

The Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship is bound for Oulton Park this weekend (11/12 June) for the fourth stop on its 2022 calendar, with Toyota GAZOO Racing UK targeting a repeat of last summer’s champagne celebration in Speedworks Motorsport’s ‘backyard’. Indeed, the Scot – similarly a former BTCC Independents’ Champion – is something of a specialist around Oulton’s undulating layout, having posted the fastest lap in the final race there in 2019 and pole position in 2020. “Moving on from a tough weekend at Thruxton and going back to the scene of my first win with the Toyota Corolla, hopes are high,” said Butcher. “Oulton Park is unquestionably one of the country’s most iconic circuits, and somewhere I’ve enjoyed racing at throughout my career – right back to my very early days in Formula Ford. “My dad achieved a lot of good results at Oulton in the BTCC, and I seem to go well there too so I’m looking forward to tackling it in a touring car for the first time.
