West Surrey Racing: WSR on BTCC Championship charge at Croft

Following some tremendous results last time out for Colin Turkington and Anthony Reid at Mondello Park, Surrey based WSR make the long journey to North Yorkshire’s Croft circuit this weekend. In contrast to the tight and twisting Irish circuit, Croft is full of high-speed straights, tight corners and a tricky chicane.

It was at the corresponding fixture last year that saw Anthony take the top step of the podium and ITV driver of the day which he’ll be eager to repeat. Driving the lighter of the two MGs, Anthony will be looking for a good qualifying position for the first race. He said: "Following the results and ‘fastest laps’ which we achieved at Mondello Park, it shows that the MG package is coming together. During the six week break the guys at WSR have not stood still, and some development work has taken place. With the hopeful improvements, and my win last year at the circuit, I’m certainly looking forward to Croft."

Colin’s trophy haul at Mondello Park has proved that the ever-improving youngster is a force to be reckoned with. Although success ballast of 42kg is to be added to the MG ZS, Colin is still optimistic. Turkington said: “I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel at Croft and hopefully keep the momentum going from the previous races. I feel that we’re really making progress and I’m confident of some more good results."

Dick Bennetts said: “I’m happy with the developments which we’ve been making to the race-winning MG ZS during the break. A recent test at Snetterton enabled us to experiment with spring and damper set-ups which gave some positive results. The ZS is now looking strong at all circuits so Croft provides us with another opportunity to strengthen our charge towards championship honours.”
