BT Motorsport looks to maintain solid form at Knockhill

Bobby will be seeking to maintain the solid form he has shown so far this season when the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship heads to Knockhill for the fourth round of the season.

The Scottish meeting will conclude a busy August that has seen him racing on every weekend bar one after the new season was delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bobby secured his first-of-many Jack Sears Trophy wins last weekend at Oulton Park, where he bounced back from an off in qualifying that saw him forced to start from the back of the grid to secure his first top ten finish of the season.

He has shown himself to be a consistent points finisher so far this season having quickly got up to speed in the Audi S3, with his points-per-meeting in 2020 being almost double that of his best season in the series to date.

Having scored points in two of the three races at every event so far, Bobby will seek to fight for a triple score in Scotland before we then enter a brief break ahead of round five at Thruxton (19-20 September).

Bobby said:n”We had tried something with the car at Oulton Park last weekend and whilst we were strong in the wet, it didn’t quite work in the dry as we hoped. Going to Knockhill, I think we will look more towards the set-up we used at Brands Hatch or Donington, and aim to attack from the moment we hit the track.

“Knockhill is a circuit where the Audi has gone well in the past and it is a circuit that I love personally; it’s brilliant. The weather can always mix things up a bit but I can’t wait to get out on track and will be pushing hard for some good points on the board”n n N.B… In a change to the normal broadcast schedule, this weekend’s three BTCC races will air on ITV2 on Sunday rather than ITV4, and are due to take place at 11:10, 13:30 and 16:55.
