Foster and Menu share the JST spoils
Nick Foster and Alain Menu both picked up the Most Improved Independent Driver Award at last weekend’s Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship event at Snetterton. The pair both made up 16 places over the three races, and maintain their first and second positions in the Jack Sears Trophy respectively with just nine points between them at the top of the table.
It was, in fact, Rob Collard who made up the most overall places from his grid slots over the three scorching Snetterton rounds, however because he received a Judicial Penalty in race two for overtaking under yellow flag conditions he was ineligible to receive the award. His 21 positions gained move him up from sixth to third in the standings making it an eBay Motors 2-3 after six race meetings.
One of the standout performances in the JST came from United Autosports driver Glynn Geddie. The Scotsman heads to his home round at Knockhill in a couple of weeks, and will be pleased to have moved into the JST top ten with an improvement of 14 places over the course of the Snetterton weekend in his Toyota Avensis.
Just 29 points cover the ten positions from fourth to 13th, and as Rob Collard proved last weekend, a good three races of overtaking can put you right into contention.
