Mercedes escapes Thruxton tyre traumas

The Wix Racing Mercedes A Class of Adam Morgan took round seven of the British Touring Car Championship at Thruxton as a spate of tyre failures led to a multi-car crash on the start straight.
The accident, sparked when championship leader Matt Neal’s Honda suffered a puncture, also involved his Halfords Yuasa Racing team-mate Gordon Shedden, the Triple 8 Racing MG6 of Josh Cook and the RCIB Insurance Toyota Avensis of Jake Hill, all four cars suffering significant damage.
Behind Morgan, who took his second win of 2016, Tom Ingram’s Speedworks Toyota Avensis and the Pirtek Ford of Andrew Jordan navigated the chaos to take second and third spots on the podium.
From the start pole-sitter Ingram, Neal and the Laser Tools Mercedes of Aidan Moffat had all tried to take the lead into the Complex corner, contact being made and Neal emerging with the lead, the two MGs of John Cook and Ashley Sutton also getting involved until Sutton slid off into the barrier.
Morgan was on a charge and took second into the chicane on lap 3, and set about closing down the gap to Neal, passing him across the start line onto lap 5 and the Honda then falling behind Moffat’s Mercedes.
Morgan then pulled away, while behind him second to tenth became a batting train of cars, Moffat ahead of Neal, Ingram, Jordan, Cook and Shedden.
With 10 laps down the punctures began ? Moffat was the first to suffer, running off the circuit at the Complex as Neal passed him. Two laps later both Mark Howard’s Team BKR Volkswagen CC and the Motorbase Ford Focus were struck, the Ford’s left-front tyre exploding and taking much of the front bodywork with it.
The Eurotech Hondas benefited most from the race-ending crash.
It was Neal’s puncture, however, that ended the race, the Honda’s tyre failing as it entered the chicane, and as its driver desperately tried to get across the track to the pits making contact with Cook’s MG. Hill’s Toyota ran into the back of Neal and the second Honda of Shedden was pitched into a spin which ended with the car against the pit wall with significant front and rear damage.
With three cars stranded on the start straight the race was red flagged and a result declared. Morgan was a worthy winner ahead of Ingram and Jordan, scoring his best result of the year, while the Team Eurotech Hondas of Jeff Smith and Martin Depper secured the best results of their BTCC career with fourth and fifth ahead of the BMWs of Rob Collard, Sam Tordoff and Jack Goff.
Many team personnel, meanwhile, were likely to miss their lunches struggling to rebuild cars in time for race two, scheduled for 2.32pm.
