Ciceley Motorsport’s Adam Morgan he’ll “never forget” one of his most successful British Touring Car Championship weekends after securing a double podium at Thruxton.
Morgan, who has endured a testing first half of the season, qualified fourth in his Mercedes A-Class and benefitted from Jason Plato’s drive-through penalty in race one to score his first podium of the 2019 campaign.
He went one better in the second contest, following home Josh Cook to the flag to repeat his podium success, before finishing fourth in the final encounter to marks the second most successful BTCC weekend of his career.
“I think it is our second best weekend we’ve ever had in touring cars. You compare that to where we were at Snetterton to what we’ve just done. You can’t write that,” said Morgan.
“Everyone in the team has just gone from being a little bit like, ‘What’s going to happen?’ to just going out there and getting on with it.
“It’s been a weekend I’ll never forget this one.”
Morgan was most pleased about the consistent pace of his Mercedes across all three races, with varying weight aboard the A-Class.
“That last race just then we were the second-heaviest car and we were competing with cars in front who were lighter from the reverse-grid,” he said.
“I could keep with them and we could push, and I didn’t feel like I was killing the tyres and felt like I could just drive the car and still be competitive.
“I’m a bit lost for words, it’s just been a brilliant weekend and amazing for everyone at Ciceley Motorsport.”
Morgan continued to say he feels he has been driving well so far this season, and is pleased now the results reflect that after Thruxton.
“It makes everything worthwhile when everyone has given 110%, it’s worth it. It’s 100% worth it,” Morgan said.
“I’ve said all year I feel like I’ve been driving well, I’ve just not had the results to go with it.
“Now it’s proven that we can still do it, the Mercedes can do it, and Ciceley Motorsport can do it. Let’s go to Knockhill and do the same again.”
