Rowbottom roars to Thruxton pole position.

Honda man edges out Jake Hill in Hampshire by just 0.086s

Daniel Rowbottom has taken his second career Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship pole position, after the Halfords Racing with Cataclean driver completed a superb flying lap during qualifying at Thruxton today (28 August).

Rowbottom has been hugely impressive since his off-season switch to the Team Dynamics-run Hondas, having already made headlines with a maiden pole position at Brands Hatch and a first-ever victory at Oulton Park.

Now, as the second half of the BTCC campaign commences at Thruxton, the 32-year-old has cemented his ever-growing reputation with a pace-setting lap at the fastest circuit in the country.
