BTCC: Positive qualifying for Rob Austin Racing Audi at Brands Hatch

By Tarek Ramchani

The 2013 British Touring Car Championship kicks of this weekend at Brands Hatch. As in the past two years Rob Austin Racing is the only Audi team of the series. A two car effort with some strong performances today in the free practice and qualifying sessions.

Rob Austin the team owner and driver of the #13 WIX Racing backed Audi A4 NGTC ended in a very strong seventh place in a snow-hit qualifying session. Rob Austin again proving the Audi A4 is one of the best cars of the field.

Will Bratt driving the sister #14 Audi A4 NGTC qualified in fifteenth place. A good result after all the bad luck this morning with fuel pump issues.

The 2013 BTCC is stronger than ever no less than 27 cars at Brands Hatch. Three races are set for tomorrow, we wish the best of luck for both Rob Austin and Will Bratt.
