A regular points scorer this year in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, Rory Butcher has impressed in his first full season in the series so far and his good form is undoubtedly set to continue this weekend at Snetterton.

Despite the MG6 GT being one of the oldest cars on the grid, Rory has driven superbly and has been great value for AmD with AutoAid/RCIB Racing where he sits in the top ten of the independent drivers championship and second in the Jack Sears Trophy.

With Tom Boardman leaving the squad following a string of poor results in the first half of the season, Rory welcomes Ant Whorton-Eales as his new team-mate at Snetterton.

With race three at Snetterton being the “Diamond Double” event where the race distance and the points are doubled, Rory sees this as a great opportunity to score big points and aid his position in the various BTCC championship tables he is competing in.

“It’s been a hectic summer break for me and I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel this weekend at Snetterton.” Commented Rory ahead of this weekend.

“I’m feeling really good and I feel we go into the second half of the season in a good position after the two-day test earlier this month gave us the chance to try out a few things with the car.

“We now have a better understanding of a few things that we need to fine tune when we get to the circuit ahead of what promises to be an exciting weekend with the special Diamond Double race.

“It’s certainly going to make things interesting on track with the additional points on offer, and I think it will come down to who can get their car set-up best for the conditions to maximise the performance of the tyres.”

Butcher also hopes that he and Whorton-Eales can work well as a team,

“From a team perspective, it’s great to welcome Ant into the fold and hopefully we can work together to pick up some good results during the weekend ahead.”
