Jake Hill finally had some luck go his way this past weekend at Brands Hatch as MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square secured silverware for the first time this season in the British Touring Car Championship.

Hill stayed out of trouble in the early going having qualified in sixth place and after biding his time, he battled past Matt Neal, Tom Oliphant and finally Colin Turkington into fourth place. This proved pivotal with Josh Cook failing a ride height test which promoted him to third.

He produced two seven place finishes following that in a confidence boosting weekend and he was pleased with his efforts and is looking forward to a circuit he loves in Knockhill next time out.

“We had a bit of luck in race one to get the podium with what happened to Josh, but I feel I drove well in that race and the car was fantastic,” said Hill.

“It showed the pace we knew was there and that we have had all year, but it just added the reliability into it. The other two races were good although we had a bit of a misfire in race two and then a battery voltage issue in race three so there could have been some more silverware, but it’s great to have three solid points finishes and we can go home happy. Knockhill next is a circuit I love and fingers crossed we can have a great car again in Scotland.”
