BTCC bat­tlers to slug it out for a quick time

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Ten cars from the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car grid will be at Good­wood for a spe­cial shoot-out on the hill.

On a week­end away from the usual fre­netic tour­ing car ac­tion, a great deal of pride will be at stake and the com­pe­ti­tion is ex­pected to be fierce. It will be the first com­pet­i­tive hill­climb for many of the driv­ers.

The full line-up is Matt Neal and Gor­don Shedden (Honda Civic Type Rs), Andrew Jor­dan (Ford Fo­cus), Adam Mor­gan (Mercedes A-class), Ja­son Plato (Subaru Levorg), Sam Tord­off and Rob Col­lard (BMW 125is), Josh Cook and Ash Sut­ton (MG6S) and Kelvin Fletcher (Chevro­let Cruze).

“It’s a proper timed shoot-out so it will be com­pet­i­tive,” said Jor­dan. “It will be fun, but ev­ery­one will want to win. We’ve al­ready been look­ing at tyre op­tions. It’s very good for the BTCC to be rep­re­sented there.”
