Daniel Lloyd's winning streak never ends


Three pole positions and six race wins means that Daniel Lloyd has left only crumbs to the rest of the TCR UK field. After three events out of seven the West Coast Racing driver has staked a claim on the inaugural TCR UK title.

Competition has always been fierce so Lloyd had to throw himself heart and soul into the battle to prevail; the two races in Brands Hatch were no exception.

Lloyd claimed a first victory after recovering to edge out a fast-starting Ollie Taylor. After contact with Lewis Kent on the opening lap, Lloyd chased the leader until he was able to pass Taylor at Clearways. Afterwards he extends the gap, while Taylor Kent finished in second and third. This was the first podium result for Kent and his Hyundai i30 N.

Lloyd started Race 2 from the fifth row of the reverse grid but made a strong start and cut through the field, eventually besting a stoic defence from the Cupra of Carl Swift into Graham Hill Bend.

Teammate Jessica Bäckman followed Lloyd through to claim her first podium in the championship, while Howard Fuller emerged on top of a duel for the final spot on the rostrum with Stewart Lines. Swift drove valiantly but was unfortunate to pull off at Surtees in the closing stages with a suspected front-right suspension problem.

Alex Morgan made a one-off appearance in the Wolf-Power Racing Renault Mégane TCR, but the French car was dogged by technical issues in both races.

Lloyd’s tally in the standings went up to 273 points against Taylor’s 174; the Bäckmans follow with Andreas and Jessica split by just three points, 143 to 140.

The TCR UK championship will be back in action at Castle Combe on 14/15 July.
