Justin Hamilton’s learning curve on iRacing has been a steep one. Since joining iRacing in January, he’s made steady – and rapid – progress up the charts, particularly with his Mazda MX-5 in Nvidia Cup competition. A credible but “distant” 66th place finisher in S2, he moved up to P17 in Season 2B on the strength of 22 wins in 31 starts, then took sixth place in Season 2C with a nearly perfect 13 wins and 14 top fives out of 15 races. Although the Brisbane resident is an F1 aficionado – Ferrari in particular – he has his sights set on iRacing’s upcoming foray into the British Touring Car Championship and the Honda HSV-010 GT for the future. Small wonder, given the fact that he used to race a [...]

Derek Warwick will join the stewards’ panel for this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix. Warwick is the third British ex-grand prix driver to advise race officials this year, after former world champions Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell advised in Monaco and at Silverstone respectively. Warwick competed in Formula 1 from 1981 to 1993, during which time he drove for Toleman, Brabham, Lotus, Arrows and Renault, with whom he nearly won the 1984 British Grand Prix

July 22nd, 2010
Tom Chilton set the pace at the British Touring Car Championship’s mid-season test at Snetterton on Thursday. The Arena Ford driver left it until the dying minutes of the afternoon session to do it though, ducking under the lap record by 0.3 seconds to stop the clocks in 1m11.408s. Chilton’s pace-setting lap looked unlikely just an hour earlier.

Gordon Shedden broke his season duck in a thriller of a British Touring Car Championship opener at Croft today. From the outside of the front row, the Scot surged his Dynamics-run Honda Civic into the lead at the first corner
June 19th, 2010
Pole position for Tom Chilton in an unballasted Ford Focus was no surprise, but the spectacularly-coiffured British Touring Car Championship’s ace method of achieving that at Croft was unconventional.

British Touring Car Championship leader Matt Neal took the fastest time in 80 minutes of free practice this morning at Croft.
June 10th, 2010

June 6th, 2010
Matt Neal moved back to the top of the British Touring Car Championship by winning the final race of the day at Oulton Park. The Honda driver started eighth on the grid, but a combination of some well-judged passing moves and the misfortune of some of his rivals paved his way to the front
June 6th, 2010
Tom Onslow-Cole took his second British Touring Car Championship victory of the year in the opening race of the day at Oulton Park. The Arena Ford driver started from pole position and led the whole race, despite incessant pressure from Honda’s Gordon Shedden. Rob Collard moved his WSR BMW ahead of Jason Plato’s Chevrolet into Old Hall on the second lap and latched onto Shedden’s tail as the front three opened up a lead of a second on the rest
June 5th, 2010
Tom Onslow-Cole believes there is even more pace to come from his Arena Ford Focus in the Oulton Park British Touring Car Championship races after securing pole in qualifying. Onslow-Cole’s first pole since his days as a Vauxhall driver in 2008 was achieved by a margin of 0.020 seconds from Honda’s Gordon Shedden, and the polesitter thinks that a few set-up adjustments will make the LPG-powered machine quicker still. “The car is good and I’ve finally had enough laps in it that I think I can extract a lot of speed,” Onslow-Cole said.
June 5th, 2010
Tom Onslow-Cole claimed his first British Touring Car Championship pole position for two years as he qualified quickest at Oulton Park.

Donington Park’s future has been secured after the Adroit Group was appointed as the new leaseholder at the Leicestershire track. The failure of previous leaseholder Donington Ventures Limited’s bid to bring the Britiah Grand Prix to the venue left it facing uncertain times, with the track requiring significant expenditure to bring it back into use as its conversation to a Formula 1-standard venue had been part-completed before the project collapsed.

April 4th, 2010
Fabrizio Giovanardi made a perfect return to the British Touring Car Championship by winning the opening race of the season at Thruxton. The double champion, who only signed his one-off deal with the Triple 8 Vauxhall team two days ago, started on the front row of the grid and ran second for the opening six laps while polesitter Gordon Shedden led the way in his Honda. The Honda challenge soon fell away though as Shedden crashed heavily at the high-speed Church corner following a left front puncture and Matt Neal, who had been on Giovanardi’s tail, slowed with the same problem
April 2nd, 2010
Fabrizio Giovanardi will race in the opening round of the British Touring Car Championship at Thruxton this weekend after signing a last-minute deal with Triple 8 Engineering. The 2007 and ’08 champion had been left driveless after Vauxhall withdrew from the BTCC at the end of last year, but will now race a Vectra for Triple 8 alongside Phil Glew.
