BTCC Calendar 2018
Northamptonshire’s Rockingham circuit has often proven a pivotal point in the championship where drivers fight to stamp their authority on the title as the competition heads towards the home straight. Sadly however the circuit has been removed from the 2019 BTCC calendar going forward making this race a unique gem in the 2018 championship.
Halfords Yuasa Racing’s Matt Neal took the grand prize at the ‘Diamond Double’ in Snetterton
Lacing him just 16 points above of the new pace-setter Speedworks Motorsport’s Tom Ingram.
With almost 270 points still to play for in this year’s championship, that margin, and the standings order, is more than liable to change, especially among the current ‘power four’ – Ingram, Turkington, Neal and Goff heading the way, separated by just 17 points.
Matt Neal quotes
“Once I was in the lead I was determined not to put a wheel wrong, which was tough because Jack (Goff) and Tom (Ingram) were all over me, but the Civic Type R performed perfectly right to the flag. I’m so very proud to be part of another landmark BTCC moment, it is one I certainly won’t forget.”
