Knockhill Next Up For MG’s BTCC Team

The MG6 GTs are back on the race track this weekend as the 2014 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship goes north of the border for round seven.

The Triple Eight run team will be hoping to build on the momentum gained at Snetterton three weeks ago, where Jason Plato secured two wins out of three, while a hugely impressive second race from Sam Tordoff further showed the pace of the MGs over the rest of the field.

Despite this, the Knockhill circuit in Fife has not been a particularly happy hunting ground in previous years and any kind of success will be an added bonus as MG continue their pursuit of team and individual glory.

MG currently sit just five points behind Honda in the manufacturer’s standings and MG KX Clubcard Fuel Save are still within 100 points of leaders eBay Motors in the Team’s championship.

With Rockingham, Silverstone and Brands Hatch GP remaining after the trip to the Highlands, the team are in good spirits about the remaining races with everything very much still to play for.

The Knockhill weekend begins on Saturday with two 40-minute practice sessions; qualifying begins at 15:05 and will be broadcast live on the ITV website. Sunday is race day with three action-packed races expected, live on ITV4. Race one begins at 11:45, race two at 14:17 and the reverse grid race at 17:07. Don’t forget to check out Twitter and Facebook throughout the weekend for updates.
