BTCC: BMW 125i M Sport on the podium four times.

The West Surrey Racing team British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) 2017 season success story continued at the sixth race weekend. In the three races at Snetterton (GBR), the Sunbury-on-Thames (GBR) team celebrated a total of four podiums. The team had reason to celebrate twice: while Colin Turkington (GBR) in second place and Rob Collard (GBR) in third place made it onto the podium in race two, they swapped positions in race three. In the opening race of the Snetterton weekend, Turkington and Collard, in the BMW 125i M Sport, crossed the finish line in seventh and ninth place. By contrast, their team-mate Andrew Jordan (GBR) was extremely unlucky. He led the third race for some time, but then lost speed in dramatic fashion and was in 21st place when he saw the chequered flag. He finished fourth and sixth in the first two races. In the drivers’ standings, Turkington is in second place, and with 219 points is just two points behind the leader. Collard is right behind him in third place, with 217 points.


BMW Motorsport Juniors: Joel Eriksson on the podium in Spa.

As part of the 24-hour weekend, BMW Motorsport Junior Joel Eriksson (SWE) celebrated success on the track in Spa-Francorchamps (BEL). In the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, which held three races in the run-up to the 24-hour race, the 19-year-old clinched two podiums. In race two on Friday, the Swede delivered an impressive catch-up performance, which brought him up into second place. In the third race on Saturday afternoon he finished second on the podium once again. Eriksson is currently third in the championship standings.
