CHAMPIONS AUDIO: MICHAEL CREES
Just over a week on from the crowning of champions during the 2020 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship season finale, the Official BTCC website is launching a special Champions Audio feature, where an interview from each victor will be posted each day. With the interviews recorded live, you can re-live all their excitement and adrenaline straight from Brands Hatch, in the comfort of your own homes.
Kicking off the first interview of the series is 2020 Jack Sears Trophy titleholder, Michael Crees.
In his sophomore season in the championship, the Clever Baggers with BTC Racing man stated his intentions on JST triumph from the get-go, leading the standings throughout the first half of the season.
An unfortunate run of retirements for the #777 Honda at Silverstone and Croft saw rival Bobby Thompson gain an advantage, before an unfortunate off for the latter in round 21 resulted in his retirement for the remaining rounds of 2020.
A clean sweep at Snetterton saw Crees head into the final race weekend of the campaign at the summit of the standings, but with his nearest challenger just 13 points in arrears it was all to play for at Brands Hatch. It was a further two JST victories for the 37-year-old, taking his tally to 12 wins, which proved enough to take the title.
