Croft – Rounds 14 and 15

The penultimate race weekend of the championship takes place at Croft, where the championship will be featuring on the British Touring Car weekend once again, offering Josh another opportunity to impress the large crowds and TV audiences.

With this being the first time Josh has ever raced at Croft, and the team having not raced here in many years, they made the most of the official test day the week before. Josh hit the ground running topping the time sheets all day, giving the team the confidence they need for the race weekend.

During Qualifying, Josh and his teammate utilised the slipstream potential of the circuit with its long straights and its fast first 2 sectors. In the end, the top 6 were separated by three tenths of a second. Josh could only manage P6 for Race 1 + 2 this time in Qualifying, due to a slight change in set up that didn’t pay off.

Starting sixth in Race 1, Josh made the most of the overtaking opportunities that arose, but with Croft being a difficult circuit to overtake at, Josh had to settle for P4 in the end and collect the points that he could.

Heading into Race 2 on Sunday, Josh was feeling determined to get a better result for the fans on TV to watch. As the lights went out for Race 2, Josh made 2 positions into Turn 1. 4 laps later, the car in front made a minor mistake and Josh dived down the inside to get up to third place. Now chasing down the battling 2 cars, Josh made a heroic dive down the inside once again, making it into second place, but unfortunately the race was red flagged so the positions were swapped back that lap. Another solid result finishing in third, far ahead from his championship rivals and now 80+ points ahead in the championship battle!

Josh is now feeling excited and confident he can wrap up the championship in the first race at Donington Park in 4 weeks!
