Disappointment For Pinkney As Season Ends Early

1 Mins read

David Pinkney and his Pinkney Motorsport team had a disappointing end to their season after mechanical problems ended their weekend after Saturday’s free practice.

During the opening free practice session of the weekend Pinkney ground to a halt as he exited Druids. With the car back at the garage the team soon established that it was a terminal problem and with no more spare engines was forced to sit out the rest of the BTCC season finale.

“Clearly that wasn't the way we hoped the season would end, but we had a mechanical problem which we couldn't resolve at the circuit,” team manager Andrew Dean said. “It's difficult to have to watch on from the sidelines, but these things happen in motorsport.

“We want to thank Ross, Chris and all the boys for the work they have done during the season, and also thank our sponsors and fans for the support we have had throughout the year.”

“Now we will evaluate the best way forwards for both David and the Pinkney Motorsport team during the winter before we make an announcement on our plans for 2011, but there are some very interesting options which we need to explore.”
