Maximum Motorsport faction owner Stewart Lines took behind the wheel of the team’s brand new Seat Leon Cup Racer this past weekend (24/06/17) for its competitive debut in the Britcar Sprint series, at the infamous Silverstone GP circuit. Ex-BTCC pilot Lines, having not competed yet this year due to an injury sustained during the off season, took no time to brush off the cobwebs and get his elbows out.
The weekend started with a test day on the Friday, allowing Stewart to further his understanding of the TCR machinery before Qualifying took place the following day. After qualifying second in class, Lines went onto to claim a class win, a second place and a third overall in the pair of 50 minute races. Elated from the results Stewart said;
“I’m delighted to have won in class in my debut in the car and championship, the team did a fantastic job, and the car was faultless. We went into the weekend for experience running the car in a race environment and came away with some silverware on our first outing, proving the capabilities of the car straight out the box”
“Going forward we’re looking to rent the car out for drivers wishing to compete in the Britcar series, MSV allcomers and other endurance events internationally. The car is capable of getting results as we’ve proven this past weekend”
