Debutant Holland Finds The Positives

1 Mins read

Robb Holland may not have enjoyed the easiest of Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship debuts, but the American is not leaving Snetterton too disheartened.

His day started badly when contact with Adam Morgan left the Team-HARD. Honda Civic perched on the tyres at Riches, but a strong second race saw him bring the car home 14th, before more contact in race three.

There were a lot of positives,” he said to theCheckeredFlag.co.uk. “It’s definitely frustrating, but you kind of have in the back of your head – ‘hey, this is the BTCC, that’s what you get’. I did warn the guys not to put an American flag on the back of the car.”

“We had a really strong race two, we moved forward and the pace was much closer to the leaders. Even in race three [after an accident on the first lap dropped him to last] the race pace was very good and we came within a couple of seconds of [Tony] Hughes and [Andy] Neate.”

The Colorado racer is on a steep learning curve despite his experience in the States, and he says both here and whatever Knockhill has in store will benefit him as a driver.

The reason I’m here is experience,” he reflects. “Even ending up in the gravel trap is experience. But here is quite fast, there are more flowing corners, but Knockhill looks a bit tighter, so I’m getting good experience of two different circuits – everyone keeps laughing when they mention Knockhill.”
