Motorbase Performance voted fans' best touring car team

Motorbase Performance has beaten strong competition from the British, German, Swedish and World Touring Car Championships among others to be crowned 'best independent team in touring car racing 2011' by motorsport website TouringCarTimes.

The fan-powered poll awarded the Kent squad to victory ahead of Sweden's Ebbesson Motorsport and the British-based World Touring Car outfit Bamboo Engineering, scooping a landslide victory with 59% of the total vote.

TouringCarTimes presented the winning trophy to delighted Team Principal David Bartrum and Team Manager Oly Collins at the BTCC's pre-season media day at Silverstone last week.

"It really means a lot to us to win an award like this that has been voted for by the fans," said Bartrum. "We might not have won the Independents' trophy last season but this shows how much support we have. Our team works incredibly hard and hopefully this is the first of many pieces of silverware we will win this season."

Motorbase Performance was also awarded the BTCC's most popular Independent team at the end of 2011.
