Reigning champion scores half century of victories in the BTCC.
Team BMW star Colin Turkington has notched up a fantastic half century of Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship victories after producing a dynamic double at Oulton Park.
The reigning champion scored two lights-to-flag wins as he further extended his impressive advantage at the top of the current standings.
Turkington ran relatively untroubled in the opener to covert pole position into his third victory of the season.
Triple champion Turkington’s milestone moment came in the second encounter as the Northern Irishman swept to his 50th BTCC victory with another commanding triumph.
BMW/Team BMW now top both the Manufacturers’ and Teams’ tables, whilst BTC Racing heads the Independents Teams’ order.
Butcher holds advantages in both the Independent Drivers’ championship and the Jack Sears Trophy.
The BTCC now enters its traditional mid-season summer break before resuming at Snetterton on 3/4 August.
Turkington commented “Qualifying on pole with maximum ballast was way beyond my expectations, and to then convert that into two race wins and cap it off with my 50th career BTCC victory will unquestionably be one of the highlights of my career. I’m really proud about that – it’s a great moment for us all.
“I can only win these races with the support of a team like WSR who consistently give me the equipment to do the job. The 3 Series was clearly the fastest car again all weekend so we can take confidence from that, but now is when the hard work really starts and we need to dig even deeper.”
