The wheels were back in motion after the winter break this weekend in the British Touring Car Championship. The series celebrated its traditional opening event at Brands Hatch and the West Surrey Racing team had a successful start to the season. After some difficulties in race one that culminated in a 15th-place finish, Andrew Jordan gave a great recovery performance in the new #77 BMW 330i M Sport. Having started from 15th position, he claimed victory in the second race. His two team-mates, reigning BTCC champion Colin Turkington and new driver Tom Oliphant, finished in 19th and 22nd places in race one. In the second race, they claimed 14th and 15th positions. In Sunday evening’s third race, Turkington and Oliphant crossed the line in fifth and sixth places. After experiencing a few problems, Jordan had to make do with 24th position. Stephen Jelley, competing for Team Parker Racing in the #12 BMW 125i M Sport, also scored some important points on the first race weekend of the season. He finished in seventh, sixth and third places.
