Bobby Thompson put in a strong performance in today’s BTCC qualifying session at Brands Hatch, securing P6, which is his best result of the season so far. The session was challenging due to the wet conditions, multiple red flags and the shootout qualifying format. Bobby made it through to the top 10 shootout for the first time of his career en route to his P6 finish.
Thompson said: “We made some massive changes coming into this weekend so we were really excited to see how we would get on. We felt like Donington was a damage limitation weekend and we came away with some decent points meaning we have a really good baseline for this weekend.
The weather steadily got worse throughout the day, but the car has been able to compete whatever the weather which is really positive to take for the rest of the season.
We’ve had a great Saturday, in the top six in every session with room for improvement from both myself and the car, so really happy for myself and the team and to prove that the Cupra Leon can compete with the front of the pack.
“Let’s go get it tomorrow!”
Despite the challenges of the weather, Bobby Thompson delivered a promising performance in the wet qualifying session at Brands Hatch. With the potential for further improvements, Bobby and the team are hopeful for a strong race day tomorrow which is broadcast live on ITV4 from 11:15 .
