Morgan grabs best finish
9:22am Thursday 11th October 2012 in Motor sport
RIBCHESTER’S Adam Morgan improved his best finish in the British Touring Car Champion-ship once more at the weekend as he finished eighth at Silverstone.
Morgan is in his first year in the championship and improved his best result this season from 10th to ninth in the last round at Rockingham a fortnight ago.
And the 23-year-old followed that up by taking eighth place in his Speedworks-prepared Toyota Avensis at Silverstone on Sunday.
Morgan qualified in ninth position and was in seventh in the first race before a collision with fellow Toyota driver Frank Wrathall saw him finish in 16th.
“It was a bit of a disaster to have two Toyotas coming together,” he admitted.
The pair touched again on the opening lap of the second race, as Morgan took 14th.
But he followed that up with an eighth-placed finish in the final race.
“I’m more than happy with that,” he said.
Speedworks boss Christian Dick said: “Adam did everything he had to and it shows that he’s right on it.”
