Forever Forward Dunlop BTCC Award for Epps at Croft

In challenging conditions at Croft Circuit, Epps took home the Dunlop Forever Forward Award. This prestigious award is given to the driver that makes the most positions in a weekend of racing at the BTCC.

 

A strong start to the weekend enabled Epps to jump 5 places from 19th to finish strongly in 14th place and earn precious championship points. There was disappointment in race two for Mike after an alternator failure caused a retirement almost immediately after an impressive overtaking manoeuvre on multiple touring car champion Gordon Shedden.

 

As a consequence of retiring in race two, Epps started from 30th in changeable conditions in the final race of the weekend. In an impressive display of wet-weather driving, Epps piloted his Team Hard / RCIB Racing Avensis into 15th position - a net gain of 15 positions. This excellent result meant that Mike finished the first half of the season in the points.
