AmDtuning.com secured three points finishes despite a difficult weekend at Oulton Park as the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship resumed following a long spring break.

The team headed into the weekend eager to benefit from the changes made to its Volkswagen Golf during the six week break.

A break issue hampered second practice for driver Ollie Jackson which saw him spin off into barriers at Cascades. Jackson later secured 20th place in the qualifying session after repairs.

Jackson brought the Golf home in eleventh place in the opening race, despite suffering a misfire as the race went on. More points were in the bag in race two with a 15th place finish due to a quick stop to remove grass from the radiator.

The misfire returned in the final race but a collision under safety car with Redstone Racing's Aron Smith, saw Jackson drop places. However, he crossed the line in 15th scoring further points.

“In a word, I'd say it's been tragic,” Jackson reflected. “It really did turn into a weekend to forget. I have to hold my hands up a bit and admit I could have done better, but we've also had a number of issues that we have had to deal with. It's a shame that the car was faultless in the recent test and then wasn't when we arrived at Oulton Park but we'll move onwards and upwards next time out.”
