Leading up to the British Touring Car Championship finale this weekend, Team JCT600 were in a great position. Our very own Sam Tordoff was at the head of the standings for the championship and team mate, Rob Collard was a 4th place point contender.
However, as the races began on Sunday, the point lead started to close in and Sam was pipped to the championship title post by Gordon Shedden, in the final few laps of Race 3.
Sam commented: “I’m gutted to have missed out on the championship, having lead for most of the BTCC season, but am incredibly proud of myself, everyone at WSR and the support from BMW, JCT600 and GardX”
Sam ended the season with 2 wins, 9 podiums and finished 2nd overall in the 2016 BTCC Drivers’ Championship. Rob also ended with 2 wins, 6 podiums and came 5th in the Drivers’ Championship. A superb season-finish for both drivers!
It wasn’t all tough news though as Team JCT600 with GardX
were the BTCC Team Champions! And BMW
and West Surrey Racing
were the BTCC Manufacturer/Constructors Champions!
It has been another fantastic BTCC season for Team JCT600. See you again next year…
