18 May 2019 The Veteran All Eyes on Matt Neal as BTCC Moves to Thruxton Team Dynamics with Honda Halfords Yuasa are geared up for the next assault on this years Kwikfit BTCC at Thruxton, Hampshire this weekend. Hopes are high following last years successful meeting where Matt Neal hit pole after breaking the lap record and then went on to win the first race and score a 3rd in race 2. Dan Cammish, in only his third race also scored a podium under the hot Hampshire sun. Earlier, this season, Dan impressed the field at Thruxton during a testing session by being the overall fastest. Off The Grid Thruxton is the fastest track on the BTCC championship and is one of the most favoured track for Team Dynamics. They have a high success rate here and the long straights and sweeping bends are ideal for the Honda Civic Type R FK8. With Matt Neal currently lying in 7th in the championship and honda topping the charts, this is the ideal platform to mount an assault for the title. Thruxton is one of my favourite circuits with great viewing and Photo: Jakob Ebrey high action areas. (Big tip: Go to the chicane just before the start/finish while the Formula 4’s are running). A word of caution though, Salibury Plain is renowned for it’s openness and being unprotected from the weather. (Any squaddie who has served there will vouch for that) so weather planning is a very good move. Good wind breaks and waterproofs if the weather isn’t good and loads of sunscreen and hats if the sun is out. Ask Jane about that one last year! Hopefully see you all there. OUT NOW!!
