Rory Butcher heads to Silverstone this weekend as he aims to continue his strong form in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The AmD with AutoAid/RCIB Insurance Racing driver has been enjoying a streak of top ten finishes from the past six races which has placed him fifteenth in the overall drivers standings and eighth in the independents table.

Focus for the Fife racer this weekend will be on his qualifying pace. If top ten performance has been manageable recently, one can only imagine where he could finish if he was further forward on the grid.

Rory has been on the podium at Silverstone in previous categories so with this fact and confidence building recent form, he’ll be aiming towards improving his best ever finish of 2018 which so far is sixth.

Commenting on this upcoming weekend in Northamptonshire. Rory said,

“We head to Silverstone on a high after our results in the last two rounds and I’m looking forward to the weekend as Silverstone is a circuit I really enjoy.

“It’s also one that I think should suit the MG, which leaves me feeling confident about picking up more strong results.

“We know we still need to try and extract more from the car in qualifying but whatever happens on Saturday, we have shown we have a strong race car that we can use to push forwards on a Sunday.

“We are scoring good points at the moment and are approaching 100 in the overall standings, which will be a great achievement for us. We have to keep being consistent and see where we can end up after these final two rounds.”
