Further GT5 podium success for Richardson Racing at Snetterton

05.08.2019: The Richardson Racing team enjoyed another strong weekend on track at Snetterton as the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge rejoined the British Touring Car Championship suppor

The Richardson Racing team enjoyed another strong weekend on track at Snetterton as the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge rejoined the British Touring Car Championship support package for the second time this season.
 


The Corby-based team headed for the Norfolk circuit eager to maintain the strong form displayed by series rookie Josh Malin, who went into the penultimate meeting of the year with three podiums – including a win – to his name.
 


Dorset teenager Josh was one of a number of drivers to fall foul of track limits over the course of qualifying, losing four lap times during the session, but was still able to secure second on the grid for the opening race of the weekend.
 


His second best time, used to determine the starting positions for race two, was even better – allowing him to secure pole position by just 0.059s.
 


A strong start when the lights went out in race one saw Josh jump into the lead on the run to turn one, but his efforts would come to nothing when the race was then red-flagged after an incident further down the pack.
 


Lining up on pole for the restart, Josh maintained his place at the head of the field for the opening two laps before losing out to Scott McKenna, but he kept his rival under pressure until the final lap when he was forced wide whilst battling for position and took a trip across the grass, slipping down to fourth in the process.
 


Starting from the head of the grid for race two, Josh lost out to Geri Nicosia for the lead of the race on the opening lap but wasted little time in getting back P1 on lap two.
 


In front of a bumper crowed and live on ITV4, Josh would remain out front until the final lap as his rivals battled behind before Nicosia dived down the inside into Nelson.
 


Josh did his best to fight back through Coram and into the final corner but had to settle for second place, securing another podium finish and a solid haul of points to take into the season finale at Donington Park.
 


“I certainly think we could have taken a win this weekend but I’m not going to head away from Snetterton disappointed as it’s been great,” he said. “It’s been a great experience to race in front of the BTCC crowd again and I think I’ve driven well. That second race was probably one of the best I’ve been in this season, and the battle with Geri towards the end was really enjoyable.
 


“Every time I go out on track, I’m continuing to learn and that is only going to benefit me going forwards. With one round remaining at Donington Park, I’m in a position where I could still secure a top three finish in the standings, which would be a great achievement for me in my first season.
 


“The fact I won there earlier in the year gives me a lot of confidence, and it’s still all to play for."
