After an impressive qualifying session on Saturday where he secured pole position, Colin Turkington eased to victory in Race 1 at Oulton Park this weekend. Performing the perfect run from lights to flag, Turkington’s perfect drive saw mountune powered Team BMR take their first ever BTCC win in their manufacturer backed Subaru Levorg.
Race 2 brought another podium win for the double BTCC champion, this time in second place, with team mate Jason Plato taking an additional hat trick of podiums with his three 3rd place victories.
'We are very happy with the results from Oulton Park this weekend, recent progress has been made with the chassis and engine after a 2 day test at Pembrey. We would like to thank mountune who have put in a huge effort to produce a competitive engine in such a short space of time', said Team Manager Alan Cole.
The Japanese cars have been fitted with a new inlet manifolds designed and developed by mountune since the teams last meeting at Thruxton, and test sessions and improvements made have certainly paid off for the team after this weekend's round.
We look forward to seeing them back in action at Croft in 2 weeks time.
