AFTER a five-week summer break, MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square heads north west to Oulton Park as the 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship resumes in the Cheshire countryside.
During the last round before the summer break at Brands Hatch, the team displayed excellent resilience at their home circuit to battle through from the back of the grid following misfortune – with Jake Hill and Ollie Jackson both fighting their way through the order throughout the day.
Turning their attention to Oulton Park, the team look forward to returning to the scene of their first-ever BTCC podium finish just under 12 months ago, where Jake mastered the changeable conditions to rise from sixth on the grid to third place at the chequered flag.
After three events and nine races so far in 2021, the team have claimed four visits to the rostrum and occupy second place in the Manufacturers Championship alongside Motorbase Performance and seventh place in the overall Teams standings.
Hosting a capacity crowd for the first time in two years, Oulton Park is one of the championship’s most-loved circuits. The 2.26-mile Island configuration plays host to the action and will see cars fire through corners such as Old Hall, Knickerbrook and Druids.
The weekend looks set to be mild and cloudy, with the potential for some small showers to play their hand in the weekend’s action.
