Ciceley Racing’s Adam Morgan and Dynojet’s Frank Wrathall will be looking for another reason to celebrate during the British Touring Car Championship races at Rockingham.
Morgan, the 2011 Ginetta GT Supercup Champion will start his 50th British Touring Car Championship race during the Rockingham weekend and is looking to strengthen his position as top Toyota driver in the Championship standings.
“It certainly doesn’t feel like 50 races already,” comments the Lancashire based racer. “I’ve learned a lot, that’s for sure. My first year was a very steep learning curve about how close-contact BTCC racing can be, and how competitive it is. It’s all about keeping a cool head; consistency is key to this championship. Hopefully my career still has a long way to go…”
Out of the 21 races held to date in the 2013 Championship, Morgan has had 19 points finishes with 17 top 10’s and a podium finish to his name at Croft. The results mean he arrives 7th overall and 3rd in the Independents.
“Hopefully I can again qualify towards the front – the top eight would be good – and then keep it in top 10 in races one and two, and then we may be able to profit from the reverse grid draw for race three. Consistency is our aim,” explains Morgan.
Dynojet driver Wrathall celebrates his 75th BTCC start at Rockingham and he heads to Northamptonshire looking to repeat his results from the 2011 campaign, where he secured a brace of podium finishes in his maiden season in the series.
“Rockingham is definitely one of my favourite circuits and it’s one at which over the years I have enjoyed the most success,” said the 26 year old. “I always look forward to going to Rockingham, and I just hope that we can get the Toyota in a position where we can challenge in the top 10.
“We’ve gone through a few set-up ideas which we are planning to test: hopefully they will put us in good stead,” concluded Wrathall, who arrives 16th overall in the Championship
