Powell steers clear of chaos to achieve top-six TCR UK result

20.06.2021: Will Powell claimed a sixth place finish in the latest round of TCR UK at Brands Hatch last weekend (19 Jun). The Motus One Racing boss brought his Maximum Motorsport entered Hyundai i30 N TCR home unscathed in a chaotic race.


Will Powell claimed a sixth place finish in the latest round of TCR UK at Brands Hatch last weekend (19 Jun). The Motus One Racing boss brought his Maximum Motorsport entered Hyundai i30 N TCR home unscathed in a chaotic race.
 



Powell qualified seventh in class in the 18-car field around the 1.21-mile Brands Hatch Indy circuit where just half a second covered 10th to 3rd place on the grid. Multiple collisions occurred early in the race, experienced GT driver Will managing to avoid the on-track melee, which resulted in just six-laps of green-flag racing.
 


Will went on to finish less than three-seconds off a TCR podium. He also clocked the fastest time over the start/finish line, at 126.6mph.
 


Brands Hatch marked Will’s last outing in the Hyundai TCR before handing over to a Motus One customer for the remainder of the season. Will, who will announce details of a new touring car venture in the coming weeks, now turns his attention back to the Britcar Endurance Championship early next month (3 Jul).


 Powell, along with co-driver Dave Scaramanga, achieved a double class victory in Motus One Racing’s Moorgate Motorsport Finance McLaren 650S GT3 last time out at Oulton Park (12 June).





Will Powell, driver of 77 Hyundai i30N, commented:


“With every lap I’ve been learning about racing a front-wheel-drive touring car; but the problem has been the lack of laps in the first two rounds! It was great to finally finish a race today.

 

“When it comes to front wheel drive experience, I’m behind most drivers on the grid so the qualifying pace has been a little off but once we go racing it all clicks. We’ve got plans in touring cars so this is far from the end of the journey.”
