Sunday, September 26th 2021

 

Rory Butcher said: “We’ve almost had a clean sweep this weekend! Race one was just an enjoyable race, it was fantastic. I knew that on lap one I wasn’t going to get the lead. But it was nice to have the pace to get back onto Tom [Ingram’s] bumper and get past him.  


“Things were tougher with a whole chunk of ballast on-board in race two, but the team managed to get the Corolla into such a good window, and I was amazed by how the car handled. I could obviously feel the extra weight, but it didn’t actually hurt me that much, which is testament to the incredible job done by all the Speedworks boys and girls.  



“They’ve given me such a fantastic car over the last few weekends, and it was great to be able to reward them for everybody’s hard work. We just fine-tuned the car over the weekend – the car is just doing exactly what I want it to do.


“A quite special and near-perfect weekend. We’re not going to stop pushing. We’re going to keep trying to find more time from both me and the car.”



Jake Hill said:
“This is what relief looks like – wow! Obviously, that’s what I wanted. I knew the car was suffering [with the weight] on Saturday, so I wanted to get the reverse grid and to finish somewhere sensible, but I didn’t expect a win quite like that. It was great, what a fantastic race with Dan [Lloyd], I thoroughly enjoyed it. We come home winners again, I’m absolutely over the moon.


“I pulled a comfortable gap, kept him there and it was all good. I did make a couple of little mistakes, he reeled me back in and got close again. Then, I don’t know if he made a small mistake, he dropped back a bit and let me breathe for the last couple of laps. It was a really good race, I enjoyed it a lot. I really want to say a massive thanks to my engineer Craig and all the team at MB Motorsport for turning this thing around, because we were genuinely struggling, and they’ve brought it back to being a race-winning car.


“They re-engineered the front of it, we were really struggling with the front of the car, we just had to think quick. We’re lucky with having three other team-mates all running slightly different things, we just picked the best of both worlds and it paid dividends.”




Ash Sutton said: “
This is what we aim for! Obviously race one and two you just have to bag those points, and when they all fall behind you it’s time to make hay while the sun shines. We did exactly that!


“Realistically, I wouldn’t have had enough laps to put a move on [Hill and Lloyd]. Around here, you’ve got to get set up quite early on. I was hunting it down and gave it a good shot in those last few laps, to pull that gap down, but I didn’t have as many laps as I needed.



“That result way key. I know those guys dropped back a little bit, so to pull 11 points out of them in that one race, just shows where we are with the championship. If we look back at where the car was when we first rolled it out, obviously we’ve got a few little things up our sleeves. The car’s phenomenal. We got it dialled in [at Donington Park] last year, so I’m buzzing to get there.”
