DETERMINED team principal Adam Weaver is adamant Power Maxed Racing’s hard work will “pay off soon enough” in the British Touring Car Championship after a weekend of ups and downs at Oulton Park.

Michael Crees would be the only finisher for the Bidford-based team in the first race, crossing the line in 14th while team-mate Ash Hand was forced to retire after ten laps due to an overheating engine.

Race two did not bring much joy either, with Crees managing to finish just inside the points in 13th and Hand much lower down the order in 22nd.

The third and final race ended early for Crees who was unfortunately caught up in a three-car pile-up, while Hand made up an incredible 13 places to take the chequered flag ninth and give PMR a positive end to the weekend.

“We really aren’t making things easy for ourselves are we?” said Weaver. “We need to master qualifying and making sure we start the weekends where we are currently finishing them.

“We are showing that we can fight our way to through to the top ten with drivers consistently finishing there, certainly by the last race of the day.

“If we could start there our weekends are likely to be much better and hopefully we will avoid so many incidents and so much damage. We will keep working hard and I have no doubt that will pay off soon enough.”

Meanwhile, the highlight of the weekend for Southam-based Laser Tools Racing was Aiden Moffat’s second-place finish in the third race. Dexter Patterson’s best result at Oulton Park also came in the final race, crossing the line in 18th.

The next rounds of the BTCC take place at Croft circuit this weekend.
