Another great weekend of BTCC action compliments of the Rockingham Speedway saw yet more podium finishes for the mountune powered teams, Motorbase Performance and Silversline Subaru BMR. 

After difficult qualifying conditions on Saturday, Jackson took the second place spot, with Plato and Turkington in 4th & 5th respectively for Race 1's grid line up at the famous Northampton race track. 

Race 1 saw Jackson start with a very good getaway, soon having to defend himself against the charging Subaru's.  However, Jackson, who has taken more wins than any other driver this season, was able to hold position finishing the race in 2nd place, with Plato taking the third spot. 

Race 2 saw a few collisions which included both Jackson's mountune powered Ford Focus & the #99 & #4 Subaru Levorg's, but Jordan battled to keep his position coming in 2.886 seconds after the race winner, taking 2nd place on the podium.

The final race of the day saw Colin Turkington making moves as he battled up to third before the second safety car was deployed to recover Scott's Subaru.  Turkington managed to maintain his position to take the last podium spot. 

With six races of the season still to run, we look forward to seeing the teams in action again at the penultimate round at Silverstone on 17th / 18th September.
