Silverline Subaru BMR Racing striving for continued success at Croft
Silverline Subaru BMR Racing’s Colin Turkington, Jason Plato, Warren Scott and James Cole have their sights set on further success as the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship heads north for rounds 13, 14 and 15 at the Croft circuit this weekend (18/19 June).

With outstanding results from Oulton Park with the team taking their maiden win and a podium hat trick, the team are oozing with confidence after considerable strides forward were made with the teams Subaru Levorg GT.  All four cars will start the weekend ballast free as they currently sit outside the top ten in the championship.

Since the BTCC’s maiden visit to Croft in 1997, our very own double BTCC champions Colin Turkington and Jason Plato have enjoyed success at the Yorkshire track by amassing a combined 14 wins and countless podiums.  Colin also holds the current qualifying and race lap record set in 2014.
Off the back of their most successful meeting yet for 2016 the Silverline Subaru BMR Racing team are full of confidence that the Levorg will hit the ground running this weekend at the mid-season point of the championship.

Qualifying will be streamed live on the ITV website from 4.00pm this Saturday whilst live coverage of Sunday’s events will be shown live on ITV4 from 10.55am

Quotes from the Silverline Subaru BMR Racing drivers pre-Croft:

Colin Turkington: “I’ve found great success in recent BTCC years at Croft and I look forward to it every year.  It’s always the last event before the halfway point and it’s a good opportunity to make your intent known to the rest of the pack.  Following on from our success at Oulton I will certainly arrive at Croft aiming high and it’s important to capitalise when we have no success ballast.  I’ve got some wind in my sails at the moment and I don’t intend on taking my eye off the ball.”

Jason Plato: “I’m really looking forward to Croft, the Subaru Levorg came alive at Oulton Park and we are excited at the prospect of continuing where we left off.  If all goes well, I expect us to be challenging  for podium places.”

James Cole: “The Subaru Levorg should really suit the Croft circuit.  It’s very much a RWD circuit and I believe we have the best RWD on the grid.  Oulton Park was a great weekend for BMR and we are very much hoping for the same again.  Every mile I have in the car I improve and I’m hoping we see all four Subaru’s far up the grid this weekend.”

Warren Scott: “Having had the weekend we had at Oulton Park the team are really looking forward to Croft and we head there feeling confident that we can challenge towards the front.  The circuit should suit the Levorg and with the cars now showing good pace we are all hoping for another great weekend.”
