Robs Blog - Thank God that’s over

Thank God that’s over!

Pre-season we knew that Donington and Thruxton were going to be tough; there’s something inherent in our car that just doesn’t suit a certain type of corner and it’s that type of corner that both Donington and Thruxton have loads of. The plan always was to keep out of trouble and pick up what points we could and I think we’ve done that rather well; indeed we have more points at this stage of the season than ever before. Now I’m really looking forward to being back up to pace at Oulton and I firmly believe…

We always knew we would struggle at Donington. As much as I love the place and have gone well there in other formulae poor old Sherman just doesn’t seem to get on with it. We have made some good progress through the winter though and it turned out that we had improved and were much closer to the ultimate pace but still we are missing something there.

I’ve got to say having Matt Taylor as my engineer now is a big step forward. We had kind of stalled in our progress on the set-up of the cars. The thing is as…

I still dont feel we showed our full hand at Brands


Ok, so I’m going to start this blog by getting ‘Ballgate’ out of the way. For those who don’t know, I finished in 10th place in the second race at Brands Hatch. That meant I had to draw the reverse grid by picking a ball out of a bowl.

This bowl is clear at the bottom and was placed quite high up so whilst stood there talking to Steve Ryder I happened to see the 10 ball through the clear section – the number I needed to be placed on pole position for the final race of the day. So when…

I wish I had a crystal ball. I wish I could see how this weekend at Brands Hatch is going to play out before we get there. I know we have progressed as a team and we are better prepared than ever before but what have the others got, have we done enough? I had been hoping that last week’s official test at Donington Park might give us some clues… My team-mate Hunter Abbott’s form was good – seventh overall and only half a second off the pace on a circuit that our cars have notoriously struggled at. It’s an…

BTCC Set for Best Season Ever


24th of March marks the Dunlop British Touring Cars Championship Media Day launch event and who’s knows what news will be in store?

Since Colin Turkington’s championship win back in October 2014 their have been, to say the least, a boat load of ‘OMG’ changes across the drivers and teams for the 2015 Season.

Here at HiQ we decided to wrap up the major BTCC Motorsport news and you can find out more over on the…
