The second round of the hugely popular Schumacher BTCC series took place over the weekend with a massive entry of 157 drivers, possibly a BTCC record??!! The newly resurfaced West London track was the venue and with the weather being very kind to us again in the UK it was a cracking weekends racing.
The battle at the top in Modified class saw Olly Jefferies, and Schumacher’s Chris Grainger and Matt White going at it hard all weekend with Alan Bikerstaff over from Northern Ireland for the weekend also in the mix. Olly took the TQ from Matt, who was having an excellent day with Chris in third. With some excellent finals and not much luck for Chris, Olly took the win from Matt and Alan. Chris has now hopefully got his bad luck out of the way before the BRCA National in 2 weeks’ time having dominated all the previous races so far this season.
The Pro stock class saw the most entries however the reult was much easier to predict, Schumacher James Hart dominated proceedings with his Mi4CX to take TQ and two easy final victories, with Ryan Edwards and Chris Neff coming from 7th and 10th on the grid to take 2nd and 3rd overall.
In the slightly slower (but not much!) 13.5 Stock class Rob West dominated proceedings with his Mi4CX taking TQ and backing it up in the finals, taking the overall win from Mark Buonaiuto and Jonathan Holloway in third.
All in all a cracking weekends racing was finished off with the trophy presentation and prize give away which saw some people go away with some nice new toys!!
A big thank you goes to the West London crew for putting on a great show and all the drivers for taking part.
The next Round moves on to the Cotswolds track in Kemble on 12th June, get your entries in early!!!
