Tim Docker heads to Britcar “Into the night” final with hopes on the season title while new teammate Nick Halstead competes in his first Britcar race
This weekend sees the final of the 2019 Britcar championship with Maximum Motorsport driver, Tim Docker currently leading his class and lying second overall in the championship standings.
Only being Docker’s fourth year in motor racing, he has been scoring consistently throughout the season and has been on the podium in almost every race this year.
Driving in the TCR spec Golf Tim said “The final Britcar meeting is almost upon us with the 2 “in to the night” races this Saturday and Sunday evening. We have the Class 4 Championship in the bag. This weekend is all about the overall position where we’re currently running second to the Ferrari 488 of Paul Bailey and Andy Schultz. It will be an uphill battle. We’re 27 points off plus another 12 when you drop Paul’s DNF and our worst result of 12 points at this stage, and so matters are out of our hands to an extent. As always we’ll do the best we can……………and then hope.”
Meanwhile Nick Halstead joins the team for the final two exciting races of the year in the Maximum Motorsport Cupra TCR car. Halstead has previously raced in the Ginetta GT5 challenge and the Renault Clio cup but has been competing in the TCR-UK series this season. Halstead finished 4th in the TCR-UK standings but has never competed in a Britcar endurance race.
Halstead said “I’m excited to try out the new TCR car and much looking forward to doing another night race which is always a great experience at Brands Hatch.”
Maximum Motorsport Team Principle, Stewart Lines added “Our TCR cars are always strong performers in Britcar and we hope to carry this trend on this weekend for the final round of the season. Good luck to Tim Docker. It isn’t over until it’s over!”
