TCR UK 2022: Report from Snetterton | Race 14 & 15

Date: 23/09/2022
Track: Snetterton

As qualifying loomed on the final qualifying of the season, the rain started to fall, this gave our drivers a opportunity to show off their wet racing skills, Bradley once again brought the first spot home for the team with an impressive P4 in horrible conditions. After going quicker through the first part of his lap, Lewis lost out on a top five start due to wheel spin out of the last corner leaving him to finish P8. Scott meanwhile, who has only having driven the car in the wet a handful of times, finished in a respectable P13.


Race 1: As the rain got heavier it was time for race one to get underway. It was torrential rain and despite most of the drivers wanting the race to be called off, both Bradley and Lewis made a great start only for them to both go off at Bomb Hole after hitting standing water one lap after the other. Bradley fought his way back to second place and another podium position, only for his luck to change once again as he was forced pull off and get yet another DNF. Lewis charged on and finished in P7, giving him a top four start for race two. Scott unfortunately sustained gear box issues after qualifying taking him out of both races.

Race 2: The final race of the season saw the track drying for the first time all day. After flying off the starting grid Lewis made his way from P4 to take the lead after only two corners whilst Bradley made his way through the field gaining place after place as well as keeping out of the Championship battle. Bradley came home to finish an astonishing P5 after starting in P15 and Lewis would keep his lead to the flag, taking his second win of the year and also gave him wins in the 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th TCR UK races, becoming the most successful driver in TCR UK history.

Lewis ended the year in fourth place in Championship after one of his toughest years yet. Bradley, despite all of his bad luck, still finished the year in a solid P15 out of 33 drivers that took part whilst Scott ended his maiden year in P21 in the standings.
