MB Motorsport sponsored by Diamondbrite aim to carry winning momentum into Silverstone
Fresh from their first outright Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship victory, MB Motorsport sponsored by Diamonbrite head to Silverstone, the Home of British Motorsport, aiming to continue their winning form.
A sensational weekend at Croft saw Jake Hill dominate the second race of the day to win by a clear five second advantage – the biggest winning margin of the season so far – as the Motorbase Performance squad continued their strong running.
Taking their first overall win in the series, the team are buoyed by their performance as they arrive at the revered Silverstone circuit.
The circuit holds fond memories for Ollie Jackson, as the scene of his very first BTCC victory twelve months ago in a thrilling cat-and-mouse battle with Tom Oliphant.
A lap around the 1.64-mile National layout of Silverstone takes in some of the most iconic corners in British motorsport, such as Copse and Brooklands.
Following the results of Croft, the title race hots up further as Jake enters Silverstone second in the championship with 218 points, just 29 behind title leader Ash Sutton.
