Power Maxed Racing boss Adam Weaver says that his teams second British Touring Car Championship win as many meetings proves his team are ‘far from a fluke’, with Josh Cook now second overall in the drivers’ standings.
Cook stormed through from ninth on the grid to win the second of three races at Thruxton on Sunday, proving that he had the best pace in his Vauxhall Astra.
He then followed it up with sixth in race three – despite carrying the maximum 75 kg of success ballast – to move to just one point behind points leader Adam Morgan.
“To win my first race at Donington Park was obviously enjoyable, but to do it from the middle of the pack like that was even better,” said Cook of his second BTCC win.
“The Astra was on rails at the front and we were really strong through Church, which allowed us to carry good momentum onto the back straight.
“All credit to the Power Maxed TAG Racing guys – qualifying didn’t quite go our way, but we knew we had the pace and when the points are available, we’ll certainly take them.”
Team Principal Adam Weaver was pleased to see both of his drivers finish all three races inside the top ten, giving the team its best-ever weekend in the BTCC since joining the championship in 2015.
“I can’t be anything but delighted with the performance both the drivers and the team have put in over the weekend,” said Weaver, who saw Senna Proctor claim third in race three to cap off a weekend of top ten finishes.
“We’ve proven beyond a doubt that our previous results were far from a fluke, and seeing the lead we’re pulling out in both the Teams’ and Manufacturers’ standings is a real boost for all of us.
“It’s a shame we couldn’t go away leading the drivers’ standings and take the hat-trick, but with Josh only being one point off the top, I’m confident we can make that up at Oulton Park in a few weeks’ time.”
