BTCC Oulton Park 2017

What a weekend of frantic racing at Oulton Park. The usual BTCC action was on show as expected, however the frantic racing was not confined to the British Touring Car Championship races. The carnage raised its head early on during the weekend with many spins and lock ups during the BTCC practice when many drivers were engrossed in finding the limit. The action continued into the support races also. Read More
