•    Tickets still available to purchase on the gate for Sunday





Croft Circuit played host to a hugely successful fundraising Saturday as fans and stars of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship raised money for charity ahead of Rounds 10, 11 and 12 this weekend.
 



A number of tin-top stars were on parade as drivers joined supporters on a lap of the famous North Yorkshire venue after Saturday’s qualifying session.



The track walk was just one event in a series of fund-raising efforts taking place at Croft as the UK's premier motorsport series visits the North East, with an auction of VIP experiences and BTCC merchandise continuing to raise funds across the weekend.



The money raised will be shared between Kwik Fit and the BTCC’s dedicated charity for 2019, Children with Cancer, and Croft Circuit’s chosen cause, the Alzheimer’s Society.



Earlier in the week, garage tours, meet-and-greet events and hospitality tickets were all generously auctioned off by Power Maxed Racing, Team Toyota GB with Ginsters, Ciceley Motorsport and Team Hard as they did their bit for worthy causes.



And there is still an opportunity to get involved with the auction for BTCC memorabilia open until 8pm on Monday – information on how to bid is available on the Croft Circuit Facebook page (https://bit.ly/2wXbbAg).
 


Back on track, Andrew Jordan finished top of the times in an eventful BTCC qualifying session despite losing his best lap for triggering one of five red flags.



The BMW Pirtek Racing ace spun following a puncture on the way into Complex as rain closed in, while separate incidents for Nicolas Hamilton and joint-championship leader Rory Butcher also caused lengthy delays.



Chris Smiley will line up second on the grid for BTC Racing while Tom Chilton put his Team Shredded Wheat with Gallagher Ford Focus third with local star Dan Cammish the best of the home-grown heroes in seventh for Halfords Yuasa Racing.



Driffield’s Senna Proctor was 11th for Adrian Flux Subaru Racing while Bradford-born Sam Tordoff struggled to get a clean lap in behind the wheel of his Cobra Sport AmD AutoAid/RCIB Insurance Honda Civic and will line up 26th.



Meanwhile, Scorton-based Max Coates enjoyed an excellent day and secured pole for both Race One and Race Two in the Renault Clio Cup before converting his lightning pace into a dominant victory during Saturday's round.



Fellow Yorkshireman and Team Hard Racing team-mate Ethan Hammerton qualified eighth but retired after an incident at Clervaux and will hope for better in Race Two tomorrow.



Fans are set for a real feast of motorsport action tomorrow when the BTCC and Clio Cup will be joined by a bevy of action-packed support series featuring the Porsche Carrera Cup GB, F4 British Championship and Ginetta Juniors and GT4s.



Tickets to the BTCC’s only north-eastern event of the year are still available to purchase on the gate, priced at just £30. Accompanied children aged 12 and under are admitted free of charge, with tickets for 13-to-15-year-olds beginning at £8.
