An enormous crowd witnessed an action-packed programme of BTRA British Championship truck racing as Donington Park hosted the fifth round of the series last weekend (July 23/24), writes Jonathan Reeves (BRTA).
TWO EACH FOR SMITH & OLIVER
Ryan Smith emerged with an extended lead of 13 points over his rival Stuart Oliver –as the battling duo clashed a number of times while scoring two wins apiece.
But MAN driver Smith also scored second, third and fourth places while Oliver took his Volvo to one third and two fourths.
David Jenkins (MAN) was the other Division One race winner as he claimed victory in Race 3 – but threw away a strong second place with a last-turn spin in the following outing.
Reigning Champion Mat Summerfield (MAN) enjoyed a strong weekend
taking three podium placings (2 x 2nd / 1 x 3rd) – and lies equal third overall with the same points total (143) as Jenkins.
Div.2 DOUBLE FOR TREVOR…
In Division 2 Trevor Martin (Scania) scored a brilliant ‘double’ victory on Saturday which combined with strong results on Sunday saw him top overall scorer – moving him up to third overall in the BTRA Championship.
The silverware was certainly well spread about the paddock as the other winners were Ryan Coleson (Foden), Andy Lovenberry (Renault) and Adam Bint (Volvo White).
But Bint – who had been topping the Division 2 tables prior to Donington – suffered two retirements on day one (blown turbo pipe), losing valuable points.
John Powell (Ford Cargo) didn’t get to stand on the top step of the Donington podium – but five strong finishes (3 x 3rd / 2 x 4th) pushed him into the lead of the category, six points ahead of Bint.
Next round of the 2016 BTRA British Truck Racing Championship:
Silverstone – August 13/14.
