JAKE HILL STILL IN FOUR WAY BATTLE FOR TITLE

Race three saw Josh Cook claim his tenth BTCC career victory at Thruxton.

However, frustration in race one and disappointment in race two probably means that Josh Cook has too much ground to make up to make a play for the Drivers’ Championship. Meanwhile, Colin Turkington’s second place in race three gives him a six-point lead ahead of Ash Sutton in the driver’s rankings with just six races to go and Tom Ingram only trails Colin by 18 points. While Jake Hill’s Championship chances were dented when his ROKiT MB Motorsport BMW ran onto the grass during the opening lap of race three, leaving him to settle for 12th position, Jake is also still very much in the mix just 23 points off top spot.

62, 63, 500, 282: COLIN TURKINGTON PLAYS THE NUMBERS GAME AT SNETTERTON

At Cobra we’re proud that so many of the top drivers in the British Touring Car Championship use our seats – and try to mention as many as possible in our updates, but occasionally history dictates that we turn the spotlight on one driver in particular.

Our relationship with West Surrey Racing and Colin Turkington goes back well over a decade and has seen Cobra Seats play its part in WSR winning a hatful of Teams and Manufacturers Championships and Colin claiming the Driver’s Championship on no fewer than four occasions.

So we were very aware that the third race at Snetterton would be Colin’s 500th start in a BTCC race – and not at all surprised that he marked the milestone with a pole grabbing drive in qualifying followed by a win-double in the first two races of the day – the  62nd and 63rd times that he has claimed the top podium in his BTCC career, pushing his season’s points total so far to a field heading 282 points.

Jake Hill was fastest in qualifying and converted his pole position to a win in race one before going on to finish second in races two and three to claim his best weekend to date in the BTCC. Meanwhile George Gamble claimed his maiden victory in race three … and Colin Turkington ended the weekend at the top of the standings in one of the closest seasons we can remember.
