BTCC Round 2 at Donington Park

The 2nd meeting of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship for 2013 takes place today at a sunny Donington Park circuit in Leicestershire.

With a weather front coming accross the country the question is will it affect any of the races with race 3 at 17:15 being the most likely.

After the last meeting at Brands Hatch (3 weeks ago) being held in freezing conditions along with flurries of snow, the warmer weather is much more to the liking of the teams. hopefully this meeting we wont see the breaking of drive trains etc..

After a strong 1st weekend Jason Plato (MG KX Momentum) will be looking to leave the circuit still in the lead, after his two wins at brands Hatch

The other drivers who will be chasing him down include the 4 Honda Civic’s of Neal & Shedden (Honda Yuasa works team) and Jordan & J Smith (Pirtek). Also in the mix with be the EBay motors/WSR BMW 125s of Turkington and Collard and the 3 Toyota Avensis’s of Wrathall, Morgan & Newsham.

So the 1st race will start in 1 hours time and we will see where we are after that finishes with Honda works driver (and 2012 Champion) Gordon Shedden both in pole position and running with no ballast.
