Morgan sets the morning pace

Team BMW’s Adam Morgan set the pace during the opening morning of the first official pre-season BTCC test at Brands Hatch. A repeat of 2023 took place early on as reigning champion Ash Sutton (NAPA Racing UK) topped the timesheet come the end of the first hour. The rain continued to pour throughout the opening hours as Andrew Watson, new Toyota Gazoo Racing UK driver, topped the times at the end of hour two. Watson’s ex-team-mate Árón Taylor-Smith (Evans Halshaw Power Maxed Racing) was among the drivers climbing the timesheet in the second hour, breaking into the top five before moving to the summit at the end of the third hour. Conditions improved late on as the track began to dry for the first time of the test. Taylor-Smith’s time would see him in tenth as the track was drying and Morgan set his time late on to put his BMW top of the timesheet.
