UK call recording manufacturer, Retell, recently became the “Official Technical Partner to WSR” and was very pleased to celebrate West Surrey Racing’s team success with a double victory at Knockhill at the weekend. Robert Collard and team-mate Tom Onslow-Cole achieved a dream 1-2 result in two races at the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Fife’s spectacular Knockhill circuit on Sunday 26th August.
The eBay Motors pair led home a gripping first race as Jason Plato, who started in pole position, crashed out. Collard, starting alongside Plato on the front row of the grid, took the lead at the start before chaos on the second lap when Plato’s KX Momentum Racing MG6 was sent crashing in to the barriers. The incident allowed Collard’s team-mate Onslow-Cole to sneak past into second position. The eBay Motors team duo Collard and Onslow-Cole simply drove away from the rest to record a dream 1-2 result for the WSR squad who prepare their BMW’s.
After a dramatic first race, starting from first and second on the grid in their second race at Knockhill, the BMW duo were untouchable as they cruised clear for another dream 1-2 result for their WSR-run team. Winning the second race was ‘the icing on the cake’ for the WSR team and much to celebrate about.
Hampshire racer Collard enthused; “It’s just been a fantastic day for me and the whole eBay Motors team with a pair if 1-2 results and our other car driven by Nick Foster also very strong. It’s a big ask but another day like today at Rockingham and we could be right back in the title hunt”.
Steve Cobley, Retell’s Managing Director said; “This is a great result for the WSR and eBay Motors BMW team and we congratulate them on their amazing victories this weekend. Retell is proud to be a sponsor of West Surrey Racing and look forward to a successful partnership and further victories on the race track. Well done guys!”
