BTCC Looking For Strong Croft Result

1 Mins read are hoping to bounce back from a difficult weekend at Oulton Park during this weekend's round of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Croft.

The West Thurrock based team did pick up three points scoring finishes at Oulton Park, but despite this a misfire on race day prevented Ollie Jackson from showing the true potential of the development on his turbo-powered VW Golf.

Jackson heads to Croft in an optimistic mood after the team worked hard to resolves the issues that hampered the Attleborough racers performance at Oulton Park. This weekend marks the first time Jackson has raced at Croft since 2010.

Jackson commented: “After Oulton Park, we need a good weekend at Croft to raise spirits before the summer break and I think we'll get one. I haven't raced at Croft since 2010 and it'll be good to go back again as it's a circuit I like and the Golf ran well there last year. Since then, we've made a lot of improvements and the car is going quicker and quicker, but the competition is tough and no-one on the grid is standing still.”

Team boss Shaun Hollamby drove the Golf at last season and is confident the team will unlock more potential within the car in order to challenge for three strong results.

Hollamby added: “We stripped the car down completely when we got it back to base after Oulton and have replaced a number of parts to solve the problems we faced. We've also spent time on the rolling road and have made some suspension modifications based on what we were able to learn last time out.”

“Ollie was a lot more confident in the car at Oulton Park but the misfire meant he wasn't able to show his true potential. As long as there is no repeat of the misfire, I expect us to be strong at Croft as the car went well there last year and hopefully we can start to unlock the extra potential we have discovered in the Golf to enter the summer break on a high.”
