1 Mins read

Team BMR boss and driver Warren Scott was elated by his squad’s sweep of the race one podium at Snetterton, on a strong day for the Volkswagen squad in the sixth Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship meeting of the season.

Scott’s outfit locked out the top three spots in qualifying thanks to Colin TurkingtonAron Smith and Jason Plato on Saturday, only for the order to remain that way in opening race on Sunday.

The historic 1-2-3 for Volkswagen was backed up by Turkington again dominating a frenetic second race of the day, leaving the Northern Irishman with a chance to seal a hat-trick of victories in Norfolk.

“It’s not been bad has it! We can’t complain at all”, said Scott to The Checkered Flag after race two, praising his team’s performance.

“For us, it’s fantastic to do the 1-2-3 in qualifying but even better to go and do it in the race.

“It just shows the quality of the drivers that we’ve got and of course the cars and work we do on them. The boys have worked tirelessly.

“When you have the teams that you’ve got in the paddock, you have to work hard. You could be here one day and then in the middle of the pack the other.”

Taking the fight to works rivals including Honda, BMW and MG, Scott admitted to a sense of personal satisfaction to seeing his Volkswagen side continue to head the Teams’ Championship.

He added: “I enjoy the fact that we’re at the front. We’ve had a very strong day today and you can see it’s close with the likes of Honda, BMW and MG chasing you.

“We’re all here to try and win the championship – if we do that, I’ll be over the moon.”

Scott himself has endured a hectic day at Snetterton, displaying two-wheeled kerb acrobatics to pass Gordon Shedden‘s Honda in race one on his way to 13th, before being tangled in an incident early in race two.

“I shouldn’t have been where I was today. I had a cracking first race and really enjoyed that, then was unfortunate in the second which put me at the back.”
