The latest from the mountune-powered BTCC & FIA WRX

BTCC Rounds 10 / 11 / 12 - Oulton Park

This weekends BTCC Round at Oulton Park proved successful for mountune-powered Motorbase Performance with podiums, silverware and points taken by both Team Shredded Wheat and Team GardX Racing drivers. 

Qualifying set the positive tone for the weekend's races with all three drivers making the top 10; Tordoff in 2nd, Chilton 3rd and Cole 7th.

Race 1 saw a quick start from Chilton, moving ahead of teammate Tordoff in what was a relatively quiet first race of the day.  Cole maintained P7 throughout, with Tordoff crossing the line in P4, but it was Chilton who maintained his position and took the teams first podium of the 2018 championship with a second step finish. 

A grid amendment for Round 11 saw Chilton start in P1 in his mountune-powered Ford Focus RS, where he lead the pack for some time before dropping to P3, where he stayed for the remainder of the race, taking double silverware with another podium step, and his first Indy win.  Cole climbed the grid bringing home his #20 Focus in fifth, and unfortunately, after a great second race of the day, a fire on lap 12 saw Tordoff retire early and end with a DNF. 

Due to the earlier incident, Tordoff reluctantly had to withdraw from Race 3, where the reverse grid saw Chilton and Cole switch positions starting in P5 and P3 respectively.  A multi-car collision saw the red-flag raised early on in Round 12 and a 25 minute break prevailed before the race got restarted.  Both drivers battled well to hold their position on the grid and the final race of the day saw Chilton cross in P7, with Cole in P10, taking more points for the team in what was their best weekend of racing yet in this years series.

WRX Round 5 - Hell

This weekends' FIA WRX round in Hell, Norway saw both Eriksson and Larsson back out on track in their Olsbergs MSE Ford Fiesta Supercars. 

The qualifying sessions saw both mountune-powered drivers take multiple top 12 finishes, both earning enough points to get them through to the Semi's.

Eriksson and Larsson both finished the Semi's in P5, missing out on the Final race of the day but again proving their pace against the factory teams.
