Weekend Review: 18-19 September 2021
There were plenty of motorsport events at the weekend from single-seater to sportscar racing. Get the latest debrief from the action that took place on Saturday and Sunday across the UK.
Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship – Rounds 19, 20 and 21 at Croft
It was wheel-to-wheel action at Croft with Laser Tools Racing’s Aiden Moffat rewarded with his first victory of the season, converting a pole position into a commanding lights-to-flag win in the opener. Moffat controlled the pace from the outset and fended off the advances from MB Motorsport accelerated by Blue Square man Jake Hill to take his first victory since Silverstone in 2018.
In the second race, it was Hill’s turn to produce a masterful display as he made a tremendous move early on to take the race lead from Moffat and immediately disappear into the distance. The battle for second ensued, but Moffat hung on, even after a mid-race hit from the BTC Racing Honda of Josh Cook.
Colin Turkington (Team BMW) ensured regular service was resumed in the finale, as the ‘King of Croft’ scored his ‘lucky 13’ career victory at the 2.13 mile North Yorkshire circuit.
Despite several title challengers scoring big on the day, Ash Sutton left Croft with his points largely intact as he bagged a brilliant trio of top-six finishes.
It is a quick turnaround for drivers and teams as Rounds 22, 23 and 24 of the 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship take place at Silverstone this coming weekend (25-26 September). For more information, click here.

In the second race of the weekend, Dougie Bolger defended valiantly from Carlin teammate Tasanapol Inthraphuvasak to score his maiden victory of the championship.
