Colin Turkington heads to a happy hunting ground in the British Touring Car Championship this weekend, where the Team BMW driver will tackle the Snetterton circuit at which he has won ten times before.
Turkington heads to the Norfolk circuit on a high, having claimed a win, podium and fifth last time out at Brands Hatch to move up to fourth overall in the drivers’ championship standings.
He also has strong form at the upcoming event, where the Northern Irishman has claimed a victory every year since the current BMW 3-Series made its début in 2019 – including double victories in both 2020 and 2022.
On top of that, Turkington has a good record at Snetterton, having won a total of ten times at the circuit, with nine of them coming since the circuit was upgraded to its current ‘300’ track layout.
“We’re coming into Snetterton having established some good momentum at Brands Hatch,” said the four-time champion.
“It was a clean weekend for me and to get a win plus a third and a fifth meant a really good points haul.
“I’ve averaged 55 points at Snetterton over the past three years, which is pretty extraordinary, but also shows how well the BMW 3 Series performs at the track.
“The history’s in our favour, but history never won me a BTCC race so we’ll need to get through each session, dial the car in and make sure we’re fast when it really counts.”
WSR Team Principal Dick Bennetts added: “The BMW 3 Series has been one of the cars to beat here and has won six of the last 12 races at Snetterton.
“We have everything we need to arrive at Snetterton with four fast cars but we’ll all have to dig extra deep to make sure we maintain our terrific recent form there, such is the ultra-competitive level at the front end of the BTCC this year.”
