PIC OF THE WEEK: PH AND THE BTCC

Why Britain's top tin-tops are still worth watching


You may be forgiven, given all our recent coverage of the DTM, for thinking that we've got some sort of downer on the good ol' BTCC.

Well, to prove that we still have plenty of love for Britain's premier tin-top series, today we bring you a POTW with a BTCC flavour.


So why these particular shots? Well, aside from the fact that the top one shows a thoroughly well-attended round at Brands Hatch the other week, they also both include the AmD tuning Golf, a car piloted this season by card-carrying PHer Ollie Jackson (aka The Wookie).

And although Ollie has racked up only a handful of points so far this season, he's definitely got some pace - in the first race at the super-wet Thruxton last weekend, he was sixth fastest. He also sat on pole for the third of the three Brands Hatch races, (all right, it was a result of a part-reversed grid, but you take what you can get).

So if you want to support a PHer in motorsport, you know who to cheer for next time the BTCC takes to the track (Oulton Park on 10th June, if you're wondering...).
