Colin Turkington has been crowned 2018 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) winner, in a finale on Sunday that topped off a scintillating season.
In an exciting final weekend at a packed Brands Hatch, Turkington secured the championship in the second race of a day.
After the race, Turkington said: “That was the most difficult race of the year. I was trying so hard.
“I wasn’t expecting the news on the radio that I’d won.”
West Surrey Racing’s Turkington made a positive start to his 2018 campaign, snatching second place in the opening race of the season back in April at Brands Hatch, which was then followed by two second-place finishes at Thruxton.
June saw him claiming an emotional first win of the British Touring Car season at Oulton Park, after his mother sadly passed away, where he took victory in race two.
Later that same month, he remained top of the British Touring Car standings after three top-five finishes at Croft, the Yorkshire circuit that marked the halfway point of the season.
Following mixed results at Snetterton, Turkington returned to the top in August at Rockingham, before retaining his position at the summit of the BTCC following a superb weekend at Knockhill, scoring three top four finishes on race day, collecting the highest points tally of his season so far.
Elsewhere, TerraClean sponsored Westbourne Motorsport claimed the Clio Cup Championship with James Dorlin, coming from two points behind to win by three.
Martin Dowd, Randstad managing director, said: “We are ecstatic with Colin’s achievement, what an absolute masterclass he has shown right from the start of the season to all his fans.
“We’re extremely proud he has chosen to be associated with the TerraClean brand and our growing network of service centres.
“A special congratulations also to Westbourne Motorsport and James Dorlin for their victory in the UK Clio Cup Championship.”
