In an action packed weekend at Silverstone, Matty Street had great drives in both races of the Britcar Trophy that saw him voted driver of the day.
Eventful debut in the BritCar Trophy
Here is what Matty said about his race weekend…
Some times you have good days some times bad days. Today we had both. 😩 🏆
There are huge positives to take away from the weekend. In race we qualified P7 got up to P2 after the start [check out the first lap here: Silverstone first lap]. I was even leading the race at one point🤩.
A safety car bunched the pack back up and I dropped to P4. We had a small issue at the pit stop with refuelling and so we lost a bit of time during the driver change. After the pit stop we came out P8 and then Andy did a great job to claw pour way back to P7.
In race 2, due to making such a good start in race one, we decided I should start the race. I am pleased to say I got another great start from P7 to P4 in the first few corners. From there I had a solid defensive drive. When I came Into the pits, the team nailed the refuelling and driver change but then the car didn’t restart 😩
The crew did an amazing job to get the car going again but we had lost so much time that we ended up back of the pack. Overall, the main thing is that we finished the race and still got a top 10 in class finish.
“Not driver of the day it’s team of the day“
Aside from that I got awarded driver of the day! 🏆
Not the result we’d have liked but still great to come away with something.
Today as been a true team effort. So as far as I’m concerned it’s not driver of the day it’s team of the day!
