Sam Tordoff takes the knocks at Knockhill
Rawdon’s Sam Tordoff finished ninth, eighth and was unclassified in the three British Touring Car Championship races at Knockhill, Scotland today.
Northern Ireland’s Colin Turkington won the first two races of the seventh round, Andrew Jordan leading from start to finish in the third.
Turkington guided his BMW 1 Series home by a three-second winning margin in race one, taking the lead from lap two and then setting a scorching pace.
Worcestershire driver Rob Austin, who held pole position, had to settle for third following a thrilling battle with runner-up Gordon Shedden.
Turkington took pole for race two and, after building a steady early lead, he never looked back. Austin and Shedden, meanwhile, swapped finishing positions from race one.
“The car was just a pleasure to drive. It just got better and better ,” Turkington said. After his race two win, he added: “The car is really on rails today.
“It was good at Croft and we thought that was something like peak performance but it feels even better today. There’s no feeling like being out at the front.”
Race three saw Turkington complete a fine day with fourth place as Jordan led from start to finish.
He produced a flawless drive ahead of series leader Matt Neal to now trail him by nine points in in the standings. The final podium place went to Rob Collard. Tordoff is sixth overall in the standings in his MG6.
