BTCC: Race 1 at Donington for Rob Austin Racing

By Johan Laubscher

Rob Austin Racing arrived at Donington after a massive repair job on the #13 Audi A4 NGTC. Despite the crash last time out the team were confidant following the strong performances at Brands Hatch. 

At Donington it became apparent that the RAR Audis had a straight-line speed disadvantage and this has hampered them all weekend. The pair of Audis lined up in seventeenth and eighteenth for race one. The race was one that saw the Audis battling outside of the top ten. Rob Austin fought hard and progressed up to fourteenth as he crossed the finish line. His teammate Will Bratt finished in twenty-fifth .

The second of three races will take place later this afternoon. We wish the best of luck to Rob Austin Racing and hopefully they can continue to move forward through the pack.
