Knockhill Circuit in Scotland provided a fresh challenge for first year Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship racer Rob Smith over the weekend, 14th/15th September, where the MG6 racer made strong progress and secured Independents Trophy points in all three encounters.
Having never previously visited the tight, twisty and undulating 1.27-mile Fife track, Telford driver Smith had plenty of work to do during practice on Saturday but he made consistent gains over the course of the weekend to take his first Independents scoring hat-trick since the Croft event in June.
Telford racing driver Rob Smith enjoyed, in his own words, the best outing of his rookie season in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at ultra-fast Thruxton Circuit over the weekend, 17th/18th August, as he and the EXCELR8 Motorsport team made marked progress throughout the event.
While the actual results from Sunday’s three fast-paced encounters weren’t the MG6 racer’s most rewarding in terms of Independents Trophy points, the step forward in pace and performance across each contest left Smith in very positive mood.
CIRCUMSTANCES CONSPIRE AGAINST SMITH AT SNETTERTON AS SECOND HALF OF BTCC SEASON GETS UNDERWAY IN ROBUST FASHION
Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship driver Rob Smith found himself well and truly in the wars during the sixth event of the 2019 season at Snetterton 300 Circuit over the weekend, 3rd/4th August, after being on the receiving end of overly robust contact in all three races.
Aiming to get the second half of the campaign off to the strongest possible start, instead the Telford racer experienced a hugely frustrating outing where on-track delays and multiple incidents stymied his points-scoring potential.
