Warren Scott satisfied after Croft progress

Team BMR boss Warren Scott was happy with another successful British Touring Car Championship weekend for his outfit, which included his first top ten finish of the season during the series’ visit to Croft.

Colin Turkington was the only one of the team’s four drivers to qualify in the top ten during Saturday’s session, as the quartet struggled for early pace.

But forutnes improved for Sunday, with Jason Plato and Turkington securing second and third during the day’s second encounter – the former having opted to compromise race one in order to start nearer the front in race two – while Scott also secured his best finish since Silverstone last season in race three.

Speaking to TouringCars.Net, the team owner was pleased with both his and his team-mates’ exploits, given a more difficult start to the weekend than they had grown accustomed to in recent weeks.

“We’ve had a great weekend,” beamed Scott. “All of us hoped to qualify a bit better than we did but today I’ve managed to stay out of trouble – apart from the first race where I got turned around – but I managed to recover and I felt the speed in the car which gave me the confidence to push on in race two and three.

“It’s been a fantastic meeting.”

While Scott had built a strong four-car team before the start of last season, the signatures of 2014 champion Colin Turkington and runner-up Jason Plato for the current campaign were considered as formidable addition’s to the Buntingford-based squad.

And assessing the opening half of the season, Scott was pleased that his team had progressed from last season, with his squad leading the teams’ championship by 19 points.

“I think it’s been great. We’ve got some new people on board and they’re all top notch, they all know what they’re doing. It shows, particularly when I have days like today – from qualifying, it looked a little bit poor.

“We were fairly confident in our race pace from when we came here testing and the boys have done their job. We’ve come away with a good haul of points again – I couldn’t ask for more.”

After witnessing West Surrey Racing secure an historic 1-2-3 finish in Sunday’s opening race, Scott lauded his team’s rivals, joking that his eyes were fixed on bettering that record.

“The West Surrey Racing guys are fantastic and they’ve done a great job and performed extremely well.” he said, with a smile on his face.“We’re the only team who can get a 1-2-3-4; but you might have to wait a while for the fourth to come.”
