LLOYD BACK IN THE SADDLE FOR CROFT

Excelr8 Hyundai racer Dan Lloyd will race at Croft this weekend, after his massive Oulton Park Shunt, he has revealed in his latest vlog on his DLRTV YouTube channel.

This weekend at the North Yorkshire circuit the Huddersfield racer will be hoping for a better outing than last season. Driving the Power Maxed Astra, Lloyd finished ninth in race one, 18th in race two and ended up being punted off in a turn one incident in the third encounter, but the follow up to that weekend saw him hit his richest vein of form in the championship. Two podiums were delivered at Silverstone just a week later – which included a race long battle with Jake Hill that ended with the MB Motorsport racer just edging ahead for the win. A raft of points followed that outing with further podiums at Donington and Brands Hatch.



The 2018 TCR UK champion doubled up the second half of that title winning campaign with a seat at BTC Norlin in the BTCC where he scored his debut victory at Croft. His concurrent TCR UK outings on his run to the crown at Croft that year didn’t quite match that. With the championship just within grasp a third, then a trip to the infield with a mechanical failure, meant he had to wait until a wet Donington finale to wrap up the UK title before his two year sojourn into TCR Europe

A repeat of the 2018 BTC result following the Oulton shenanigans would be a fine fillip. The McDonald’s enthusiast had finished every race in the points up to that point, but has yet to crack the podium in 2022.

Motor Racing UK Magazine was launched by former F1 and Endurance engineer Mick Palmer in 2019 to tell stories from the British national and club scene. The growth of the magazine, and a growing focus on Touring Cars, means that the time has arrived to re-launch the magazine website to carry stories and news from across motor racing, instead of just being a place to find out about the latest issues of the magazine.
