Motorbase expects BTCC wins and podiums at Snetterton

Saturday, July 23 2016

Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship title contenders Motorbase enters the second half of the season at Snetterton next weekend (30/31 July), with both of its drivers poised for an assault on the championship.

Former champion Andrew Jordan is fourth in the title race, 37 points off the lead, whilst Mat Jackson lies eighth, 14 points behind his team-mate. With three victories between them, they are aiming to add to this tally at the Norfolk track where Motorbase made its BTCC comeback last year, before going on to dominate the championship's final rounds.

"We've had some good results," said Mat. "We've obviously thrown a few points away, which is slightly frustrating, but overall the car is quick and we've got to see what the second half brings."

"It's alright," Andrew said. "It's been consistent and I've had a win. Every man and his dog was talking about when I last won a race, so it was quite nice to shut them up and get the win quite early on in the season for a new team. I'm enjoying myself and the season so far, leading the Independents' standings and fourth overall, so it's good."

Motorbase also leads the Independent Teams' championship, with a healthy lead over rivals Speedworks. In the overall title race, both drivers are aware that the competition has grown in recent rounds.

"The Subarus will be in the fight at the end, I think we can predict that," Mat said. "From our side, we've been cut down from where we were last year, and I think that's hurting us slightly. We are lacking against the TOCA engine, but that's not in our control, so we've got to do the best with what we've got, and I think so far we've put up a good fight."

"At the minute they're not in contention but I can see Colin being there come the end of the year, so I can't worry about what they're doing," Andrew said. "They've been given a big leg-up to get up there and that's just how it is."

"I think it's going to put emphasis on consistency; we've had ten winners and 15 races, you've just got to keep scoring. I'm looking forward to it, and I think we'll go pretty strong there; looking for podiums and wins as always."
