The British touring car championship entered its final stages last weekend with the penultimate round at Silverstone.

A strong qualifying performance placed Whalley’s Adam Morgan ninth on the grid.

After a solid start, Morgan’s recent run of form seemed to be continuing as he moved up to sixth place, but then bad luck once again returned to haunt him when the turbo on the Mercedes faile,d forcing him to retire from the race.

Demoted back to 27th on the grid for the second race, Morganclimbed to 24th after the first lap, and forced his way past a car on every lap to reach 14th by the closing stages, before eventually settling for 16th place, just out of the points.

Luck was for once on Morgan’s side for the final race of the day. Promoted to 15th on the grid, he gained a further four places on the first lap, and worked his way up to finish in seventh place.

He now sits in 11th place in the championship with 148 points, and the series concludes in a week’s time at Brands Hatch.
