Rockingham next up on the BTCC Calender
Going into Rockingham next weekend, where he has won twice in his BTCC career, Rob Collard, who won at Donington Park and Croft and has added two further podiums this season, is just 32 points away from leading the Championship with 20 available for a win. Rob said: “My philosophy is to attack at every opportunity and score every point I possibly can. I’ll have 57kg in my BMW which makes it lighter than it has been for some time and could be very important in qualifying. Rockingham is a unique track with its layout including bits of oval and infield, but it’s become one of the best places for racing in the BTCC with good overtaking spots and a couple of tight, twisty sections that should suit our car well.”
The Rockingham triple-header on August 27-28 is the eighth of 10 events in this year’s BTCC, which takes in nine circuits the length and breadth of the country. Every round is screened live and exclusively on ITV4 in HD.
