The Production Touring Car Trophy championship held at Rockingham Motor Speedway over the weekend of September 1st and 2nd saw the race debut of the Courtenay Sport backed Focus RS, driven by 2010 and 2011 champion Adrian Churchill.

Built to a high standard by Mardi Gras Motorsport, the car features fully adjustable KW suspension, Alcon brakes and a bespoke race exhaust system from Milltek Sport, with final prep work and pre-season mapping carried out by Courtenay Sport.

After getting the car competitive during summer testing, but with no race data to draw upon, the Courtenay Sport backed car qualified in fourth place for its first race, in a highly competitive field. The race results for the weekend were a respectable fourth place in the first race, a non finish after contact from a competitor caused suspension damage and the car had to retire in the second race, and in the third and final race starting from the back of the grid (due to the non finish in race two) Adrian battled hard and came through the field to take the car to its maiden win.

Additional testing and development will be carried out over the coming months, with focus particularly on the chassis and set up.

A fantastic weekend all round and massive congratulations to the whole team, Adrian and to the team backers and sponsors.

Production Touring Cars Update

With Joe Girling taking a mid season break from racing, the Courtenay Sport Astra VXR that we ran for Joe was in the hands of Jake Giddings for the Snetterton, Thruxton and Rockingham rounds.

On his debut at Snetterton, Clio Cup racer Giddings, placed with three third place podium finishes over the weekend. A fantastic start in this series.

Two weeks later, Thruxton saw Giddings take another third place and his maiden win in the championship in the final race of the weekend. Sadly the first race was a non finish due to a driveshaft failure.

Rockingham also saw a third and a fourth place over the weekend, and another non finish due to a coming together with another car.
