TOP NOTCH TURKINGTON DELIVERS AGAIN AT OULTON PARK
COLIN TURKINGTON PRODUCES ANOTHER SENSATIONAL LAP WITH MAXIMUM BALLAST IN SUPER TIGHT QUALIFYING SESSION
- Colin Turkington punched out another storming lap today at Oulton Park securing a spot on the 2nd row of the grid for race 1 tomorrow.
- Claiming P3 in a super tight qualifying session, the Team BMW driver initially held pole position but ultimately the 1m25:971s was good enough for third spot.
- Congestion on track made life difficult for the championship leader but he once again delivered the goods.
- Colin insists he enjoyed his “thrill” around the Cheshire circuit, despite carrying maximum success ballast.
I was actually a little bit disappointed on the cool down lap, and that says a lot really. We’re locked in to the mentality to keep pushing, that’s my job. But now that the adrenaline has dropped I’m really pleased with the 2nd row, that’s a fantastic result by any means and given where we’d been in free practice.
Team BMW have once again done a great job for me. Well done to everyone!
It seemed busier than ever out on track and I had to abort a lap but we got there in the end! The weight is making the car a little lazy in places and of course it limits the potential, but we did a top job with what we had today.
I’ve been checking the weather app to see what tomorrow’s going to bring so we might be in for a different type of a day. But it will be the same game plan as ever; try and bring the car home 3 times and score good points.
It’s also important to just get out there and enjoy it!
Oulton Park is such a good circuit, especially in quali, on good rubber…it’s a real thrill!
LAP TIME: 1m25:971s
