eBay Motors team gears up for Oulton Park
The fourth round of this year’s Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) takes place at Oulton Park on Saturday and Sunday 9th and 10th June, and the eBay Motors team is looking to build on its early season form.
The team currently lies in third place in the Independents Championship and drivers Rob Collard, Nick Foster and Tom Onslow-Cole will aim to improve on one of the most popular rounds in the touring car calendar.
Both Rob Collard and Tom Onslow-Cole have a history of success at the circuit and they are keen to get their title chances back on track after a break of over a month since Thruxton.
Hampshire-based driver Rob Collard commented: “I am really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of the eBay Motors BMW after a slightly frustrating weekend last time out. There has been some good testing over the past weeks and hopefully the car is in great shape to compete at the front of the grid. Oulton Park is a circuit that we have done well at previously and I hope that continues.”
Dick Bennetts, Team Principal of eBay Motors, added: “We ran one of our turbo BMW’s on a four poster rig and learnt quite a lot, so then decided to verify the results with some testing at Silverstone with Colin Turkington. Working with the turbo engine has been an interesting process and we are looking to improve our performance now that we have got to know the car better. I am hopeful that our talented drivers will be able to guide the eBay Motors cars to podium finishes at Oulton Park.”
Fans at the Cheshire circuit should look out for the eBay Motors garage, an exciting experiential zone where visitors will have the opportunity to beat the drivers in the eBay BTCC simulator and win some great prizes.
Over the weekend the three eBay Motors cars will be running with Union Jack flags on the roof in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
