Turney turns up the pressure at Ostricourt

Turney takes the lead in the MSA Championship title race

Day one Turney was disappointed with P8 in quali but typically raced his way back into contention with two third place finishes in the finals despite not being as quick as he would like.


This lack of pace was a concern, something wasn't quite right and it had to be found. Overnight the team and driver worked to identify why he had been off the pace and eventually the issue was identified and rectified. They retired for the night knowing they were well set up to come out fighting for day two and come out fighting they did.


Untouchable on day two Turney took pole in qualifying and followed that up with two supreme wins, the second by over 5 seconds.


This gave Turney more than enough to be the weekend top points scorer and put him right back in the frame to push for the BNL Senior Rotax title at his first attempt.


The championship will conclude the first weekend in September at the fabulous Genk circuit in Belgium, the scene of Turney's victory in 2016 in Junior Rotax taking that title at his first attempt, will he return and do it again in Seniors?

The first weekend of June saw Joe return to Ostricourt in France where he would compete in only his second ever Senior Rotax race and his first time in the class at the circuit. The weather would once again challenge the drivers with rapidly changing conditions testing drivers and mechanics to produce their best.


Round one had not delivered the best possible result due to an incident at the start of the final and Turney was determined to stamp his authority once again in the BNL Championship title race.


The 1500 metre circuit is set in the open countryside just south of Lille and provides a superbly challenging layout for drivers to master.


The BNL (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg) Championship runs each weekend with two days of racing comprising qualifying and two races with overall points for the weekend combining to create a winner.


This formula ensures that competitors maximise their track position whilst factoring in the whole weekend rather than a 'smash and grab' final race for glory or nothing.
