Pic of the Week: PH and the BTCC


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...).

    They got Tom Onslow Cole on board at the start of last years season but he didn't stay long, I think Shaun took over when Tom left. Shaun drove for all of the 2010 season.

    The AMD team do a hospitality package giving you access to the garage, grid etc. A mate and I went to the donnington at the end of 2010 and we had a great day.

    The team even sent me one of the wheels off the car a couple of weeks later as they didn't have any T Shirts to give us.
