Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship Thruxton 18-19 May 2019

 

Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship Thruxton 18-19 May 2019
JUBILANT JORDAN AT THE DOUBLE AS THRUXTON COOKS UP A THRILLER 
 
BMW Pirtek Racing’s Andrew Jordan took two wins as the Kwik Fit BTCC made its first of two visits to Thruxton in 2019 over the weekend of the 18th and 19th May. Starting from the second row in a freshly straightened BMW 3 Series after his heavy Donington Park accident Jordan leapt up to 2nd at the start of race 1 as top qualifier Sam Tordoff converted pole into the race lead which he held on to until the 13th lap when an electrical issue with his Honda Civic cost Tordoff his power steering making him run wide through Church allowing Jordan to tow past on the run to the Club Chicane and take the win with Tordoff holding on to 2nd from Dan Cammish in 3rd. A great start to race 2 saw Jordan take the lead from the start, a lead he wouldn’t relinquish leading home West Surrey Racing team mate Colin Turkington with Honda’s Cammish again completing the podium. Race 3 was drawn with the top 11 finishers in race 2 to be reversed which put championship leader coming into the weekend Ashley Sutton on pole with Bath’s Josh Cook sharing the front row. With spots of rain starting to fall Sutton held the lead through Allard but Cook was able to draw alongside on the run to the Complex taking the lead on the inside and controlling the race thereafter to take the flag surviving two safety car periods on the way. New joint championship leader Rory Butcher took second with Sutton in third. Ably supporting the BTCC in a one-off appearance this weekend were the Mini Se7en and Mini Miglia Challenges with four epic slipstreaming battles making the crowd cheer seeing Darren Thomas take both Mini Se7en victories as Chris Morgan and Nick Padmore split the wins in the Mini Miglias. The BTCC now moves to Croft in North Yorkshire over the weekend of the 15th and 16th June: Words Stephen EDP
