The latest three races in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship are staged at Snetterton in Norfolk on Sunday, August 3, with United Autosports hoping that they “qualify” to race well.
Having predictably endured a character-building first half to their maiden BTCC season, often falling foul in the opening 15 races due to the starting positions of their Toyota Avensis cars, United Autosports are looking for an upturn in qualifying form.
Local driver Glynn Geddie and team-mate James Cole head to the 12-corner, 2.99-mile Snetterton “300” circuit aiming to show the fruits of the team’s hard endeavours over the past five weeks since the last races by posting top-12 times in Saturday’s single 30-minute qualifying session.
Just two top-15 qualifying spots from the opening 15 races laid the United Autosports duo open to problematic, often fender-bender – or worse – races due to the frenetic action. James and Glynn are determined to open a new chapter starting at Snetterton .
Glynn said, ““I like Snetterton and have enjoyed good races and results there previously and so I’m hopeful that will continue over the BTCC weekend.
“We have had so much bad luck in races but on the positive side have also shown good pace. I’m really looking forward to racing the Toyota again after the break and fingers crossed James and I can finally score some good race results.”
