BTCC Rounds 4/5/6 - Donington Park

This weekend saw the second instalment of this years BTCC Championship, with the team returning to the scene of their season launch, Donington Park. 

Saturday's qualifying went well, albeit on a wet track and the three mountune-powered drivers all took promising positions; Tordoff in 3rd, Chilton 5th and Cole 12th.

Sunday, all drivers were fast off the mark with Chilton and Cole instantly climbing places but Race 1's end result was a mixed bag.  Tordoff suffered some electrical problems meaning a DNF for Round 4, and Chilton took some damage, which set him back, unable to regain his third row position. However #20 Cole made great progress to climb the grid and take the flag at P5.

Race 2 offered the team better results. Cole took P6, Chilton made the top 10, and #600 Tordoff finished in P11 after starting 31st so bags himself the Forever Forward badge.

All starting the race on hard tyres, the reverse grid draw saw Cole, Chilton and Tordoff line up their  mountune-powered Focus RS' in P4, P10 and P11 respectively, but a tough third race for the team prevailed with Tordoff exiting at Craner's bend on Lap 1, taking teammate Cole with him, ending their Round 6 on the gravel.

Chilton did good to hold on and improve on his starting position, with his #3 taking P9 at the flag and adding points for the third time that day. 

The team take this weekends positives and championship points and move on to the next meeting at Thruxton in 3 weeks time.

World Rallycross Round 2 - Mantalegre, Portugal

Round 2 of this years FIA World RX was held at one of Europe's top RX tracks, Montalegre, Portugal. 

The mountune-powered Olsberg Drivers, Kevin Eriksson and Robin Larsson fought hard in tricky weather conditions, making themselves known on track in all 4 qualifying rounds, both taking multiple top 13 finishes.

Amid the sun, rain and forecast snow, Larsson just missed out on progression after coming in an overall 13th, however Eriksson managed an overall P8 making his way to the Semi's, but missed out on the final after contact on the first corner. 

We are looking forward to seeing the cars and drivers back in action in Belgium in two weeks.
