TURKINGTON IN CHINA
British Touring Car champion Colin Turkington jetted straight to the Wuhan street circuit after clinching the 2018 crown to compete in the Chinese Touring Car Championship. Driving a Volkswagen Lamando for the SAIC VW333 Racing team, Turkington qualified on pole position and finished fourth in the first race. He was third in race two, only for all four Lamandos to be excluded for non-homologated brake pads. This reversed-grid race was won by another BTCC driver, Adam Morgan, in a BAIC Senova. The field also includes 2014 British F3 champion Martin Cao in a Ford Focus.
