TOYOTA GAZOO Racing UK showed Points and Promise in BTCC opener

Donington Park (22/23 April) was an encouraging opening weekend for TOYOTA GAZOO Racing UK, with the team securing a number of points-scoring finishes, and Rory Butcher, Ricky Collard and George Gamble showcasing the speed of the Toyota Corolla come rain and shine. Butcher made a similar decision to change over to wets – albeit once the race was underway, dropping the Scot off the lead lap. He fought back to sneak a couple of points for 14th place, while Collard was brought out of contention by contact on lap one. “That said, we made progress throughout the day and took a big step in race three, when the Corolla felt mega and I was really in the groove. “That left us out-of-position on the grid for race one, but we scored some good points in sixth. We unfortunately made the wrong tyre choice for race two, and I got hit multiple times on the opening lap, which resulted in a front-left component failure.
