Tordoff Secures second place in championship after a hard-fought season while JCT600 With GardX secure constructors Trophy
27 year old Sam Tordoff, who was in strong contention to take home this year’s BTCC championship trophy missed out by only two points.
The final race in Brands Hatch saw Tordoff finish in second place overall after a nail biting battle with reigning champion Gordon Shedden in the finale. In the end, the Yorkshireman finished only two points back on the championship winner.
Tordoff said Tordoff said: “While I’m obviously gutted to lead the championship for most of the season and then miss out on the Drivers’ title by two points, I’m incredibly proud of myself, of the job done by everyone at WSR and the support we’ve had from BMW, JCT600 and GardX all season.”
Tordoff and teammate Rob Collard’s efforts during the season ensured that West Sussex Racing (WSR) claimed the HiQ Team’s trophy, finishing off what has been a fantastic season for the team.
“I’m really happy for everyone at WSR to be celebrating the Manufacturers’/Constructors’ title and have to say a big thank you JCT600, GardX, IHG® Rewards Club and BMW UK for the support they’ve given us this year on our way to the Teams’ title,” said the Team Principal, Dick Bennet.
The British Tour Car Championship 2017 will begin at the Brands Hatch Circuit on 1-2 April.
