Points Aplenty As MG Celebrates 100th BTCC Race

MG celebrated 100 races in the MSA Dunlop British Touring Car Championships this weekend at Oulton Park.

The two MG6s each took decent points in all three of Sunday’s races to help build momentum as the season mid-point approaches.

There was no fairytale in MG’s 100th race though as former driver Jason Plato took the chequered flag from pole position after a dominant race.

Andrew Jordan, starting from fourth on the grid, just missed out on a place on the podium as he was unable to get his MG6 passed Andy Priaulx’s BMW. Jack Goff came home in seventh, picking up one place from his eighth-placed Saturday qualifying position.

Race two saw Jordan start from third on the grid and, in an afternoon somewhat devoid of overtaking manoeuvres, was where he finished. The 2013 champion went one better in the final race of the day but was left frustrated behind another BMW, this time in the form of a stubborn Sam Tordoff. Goff backed his team-mate up with two more points finishes, rounding race two and three off with ninth and eighth respectively.

Off the track, MG enjoyed great success with record crowds in attendance at the trade stand on Saturday and Sunday. The MG3 and new MG6 were both on display with MG staff receiving impressive interest in both. That was accompanied by both drivers conducting their usual race day Q&A as well as a range of prize giveaways to commemorate 100 BTCC races.

The MG Triple Eight team move on to the north-east in three weeks time for rounds 13, 14 and 15 of the BTCC at Croft.
