BTCC: Audi teams move to Scotland and want to shine at Knockhill

By Tarek Ramchani

The British Touring Car Championship is heading to Scotland this weekend. The very short and popular Knockhill circuit will play host to the seventh meeting of the 2014 season.

The Audi brand will be once again represented by three cars from Rob Austin Racing and Rotek Racing. Both teams will try to perform well in a very large and demanding field at the Scotthish track.

Rob Austin Racing will field its pair of Audi A4 NGTC cars for team-owner and superstar Rob Austin and his team-mate Hunter Abbott.

Rob Austin was a true hero in Scotland taking an emotional and outstanding pole position beating the works and factory supported teams and drivers. Rob Austin will be eager to perform well again and fight for the top spots.

Hunter Abbott is having a positive debut in BTCC with and he too will target strong results against strong rivals within the independent field.

Rotek Racing and their driver Robb Holland performed very well last time out at Snetterton. The brand new Audi S3 Sedan took it first points this season in BTCC. Robb Holland and his team will give everything to secure additional points with a very improving race car.

As always two practice sessions and qualifying will be held on Saturday. All three races are set for Sunday.
