TCR UK @ Oulton Park- Swift and Taylor share the honours

Carl Swift and Oliver Taylor shared race victories in the first event of the 2019 TCR UK championship at Oulton Park. Swift inherited the win when Race 1 was red-flagged, following an incident that involved the leaders.

 The CUPRA cars of Taylor and Swift passed the Honda of pole sitter Henry Neal who managed to overtake Swift for second and then started a though and thrilling battle for the lead with Taylor.

Eventually they made contact and both cars ended up in the barriers. The race was red-flagged, leaving Swift to take the victory with Sunny Wong finishing on the podium.

In Race 2, Swift started from pole position, but the Success Ballast he picked up meant that he was passed at the start by the TCT Audi of Alex Day. On Lap 2, Taylor passed Swift for second and then took the lead two laps later.

 Neal moved up into second place and then him and Taylor resumed the battle they had had in Race 1. This time Taylor was able to keep Neal at bay until the end. Swift finished third and so left Oulton Park in the lead of the championship.

The next round of the TCR UK takes place at Donington Park on June 22/23.
