Rob Austin Racing Press Release
Worcestershire’s Rob Austin reckons he and his Exocet Racing-backed team are set for their most competitive Official BTCC season yet after a highly encouraging first test of the year in his Audi Sherman at British F1 Grand Prix circuit Silverstone.
Austin, also the team principal and who even drives his own transporter to events, is hoping to surpass his results of 2013 when he achieved both a breakthrough maiden pole position and race win in Britain's premier motor racing championship which is screened live on ITV4.
“Even though it’s been wet and cold here at Silverstone, we’ve still gathered some valuable data and worked through a number of set-up changes which have told us a lot. Plus, as a driver, it’s great to blow away the cobwebs. This is the first time our team has had the luxury of a proper pre-season testing programme for touring cars – we have another six or so test days still to come – and I’m delighted by where we are already.”
