Compact Cup Race Calendar
(2) Oulton Park
07:30 - 18:05
After a cracking first round of the 2017 Nankang Tyre BMW Compact Cup Championship at a sunny Silverstone, everyone involved is buzzing with expectation about what Oulton Park will deliver. Historically the Cheshire circuit has suited some drivers much more than others, and it’s never a surprise to see previously unplaced drivers appearing on the podium.
With two Silverstone wins under his belt James “Jiggy” Gornall has taken an early lead in the championship, however it’s clear that he’s not going to have it easy, especially at a circuit where he didn’t make the best of his 2016 Compact Cup visit. Sam Yates was ultra quick last year at this his “home” circuit, and we’d expect him to demonstrate the same kind of pace this year. Sam could really shake things up if he has a trouble free weekend. Steven Dailly currently lies third in the 2017 championship, and he also showed his confidence here in 2016 by taking two second place finishes. He’ll be in a very determined mood after dropping some points at Silverstone due to an on track infringement. It would be foolish of us to rule out a real challenge by the ever consistent Ian Jones either…currently second in the 2017 standings and proven to be more than capable of race wins.
Outside of these racers, there are a number of other drivers who have already shown that they are capable of running at race winning pace, so don’t be surprised if we see some new faces on the Oulton Park podium. It’s early days for the 2017 season yet and anything can happen to any driver or car at any time, and if history teaches us anything at all about the BMW Compact Cup, it’s to expect the unexpected!
