Final Round of TCR & VWRC Sees Sam Osborne Join PMR Fold
This weekend sees the final round of both TCR-UK and Volkswagen Racing Cup at Derbyshire’s picturesque Donington Park circuit.
Power Maxed Racing will contest their two Seat Leon TCRs and one Volkswagen Golf Mk7 across the weekend, ending what has been a vastly reduced calendar for the super-competitive championship, organised by Maximum Networks.
With Dan Kirby deciding to sit out the final round, The Dream Car Giveaways’ TCR Leon will be piloted by current BTCC driver, Sam Osborne. Osborne, who has seen experience in multiple front-wheel-drive disciplines, including Mini Challenge, Clio Cup and BTCC, will have his first TCR experience this weekend.
The transition from rally driver to TCR driver for Will Butler has proved to be a successful one, with the rookie driver scoring 19 points in the sole competitive weekend he’s had in the car to date, meaning he goes into the final round P6 in the driver standings.
Russell Joyce will contest the final round of the year in his PMR-prepared Mk7 Volkswagen Golf. The man behind Joyce Designs is responsible for all of the attention-grabbing Power Maxed Racing BTCC liveries, along with many cars across multiple motorsport disciplines. Joyce is looking forward to a fruitful Donington weekend following electrical issues at the previous round at Silverstone.
