Silverware celebrations for home hero Butcher

Rory Butcher produced a masterclass in defensive driving to hold off a four-time champion for a hugely popular home soil podium in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at Knockhill last weekend (30/31 July), as Toyota Gazoo Racing UK team-mate Ricky Collard similarly tallied a trio of strong points-scoring finishes. He moved forward in race two to finish sixth, pulling off passes on George Gamble, Dan Cammish and Stephen Jelley along the way – before saving his best until last in the partially reversed grid finale. “It was a shame we couldn’t convert that into a good grid position in qualifying. “I went into Sunday knowing I needed to be aggressive, and race one was probably my best so far this season. We were quick again in race three, but I got pushed off the circuit on the first lap, dropping me down the order. It was the standard reversed grid race shenanigans, and unfortunately, we were on the receiving end.
