OULTON PARK NEXT UP FOR LASER TOOLS RACING WITH MB MOTORSPORT
Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport will continue their BTCC campaign this weekend (17/18 June), as they head to Oulton Park to contest round five of the 2023 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport and Jake Hill head to round five, which marks the halfway point in the 2023 season, off the back of a positive weekend at the ultra-fast Thruxton Circuit. Another top-five qualifying result saw the Kent-based driver follow up on Sunday with a brace of 4th place finishes and another top-ten result in the final race of the day. These results mean that Hill now heads to Oulton Park this weekend currently occupying 4th in the Drivers’ Championship with 130 points.
Hill and MB Motorsport’s previous trip to the circuit was one that left the team with a feeling of ‘unfinished business’ as an incident in qualifying meant Hill started down the order. The 29-year-old recovered brilliantly to score points in all three races and also took the fastest lap in the final race of the day, but this weekend presents them the opportunity to show their true pace at the Cheshire circuit.
Hill, in his WSR-run BMW 330e M Sport, will be looking to score big points this weekend and reignite his championship fight with six rounds and 18 races still left to contest.
“This race weekend, I am determined to get back to the front and score as many points as possible to continue our championship fight!” said Hill.
“We had a positive weekend at Thruxton last time out so we need to build on that this week and get ourselves back on the podium. This weekend I want to show what I can really do around this great circuit in my Laser Tools Racing with MB Motorsport BMW!
“The whole WSR team has been working so hard to get us back to the front so we’ll keep pushing this weekend and hopefully reap the rewards for our efforts.”
The action on track will begin on Saturday with a pair of free practice sessions being followed by qualifying taking place later that day at 1540. For this weekend, the qualifying shoot-out, which is available to watch live on Youtube, returns which will see the regular 30-minute qualifying session be followed by a ‘Top 10 Showdown’ to set the front five rows of the grid.
All three races take place on Sunday, with live coverage available on ITV1 (race one), and ITV4 (races two and three) and online at ITVX. The races are scheduled for 1217, 1440, and 1725 respectively. Live timing across the weekend is available here.
