DRIVER SPOTLIGHT: STEPHEN JELLEY
Stephen Jelley enjoyed a strong campaign during the latest Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, with the 39-year-old bagging his best finish in the overall standings since 2009.
Jelley proved lucky in the reverse grid draw in 2021, with the Leicester racer put on pole on four occasions throughout the year, and went on to secure a pair of podiums amongst his myriad points finishes.
With Team BMW vying for a sixth successive Manufacturers’/Constructors’ crown during the campaign, Jelley worked with the team to put the Bavarian marque on top, whilst also supporting his team-mate Colin Turkington as he continued his push for a fifth title.
