Collard takes second Champagne Moment

Rob Collard has been named as the winner of HiQ's Champagne Moment for the British Touring Car Championship meeting at Oulton Park.

The Airwaves BMW driver took the honour following his storming drive in the final race of the weekend in Cheshire, where he came through from the back of the field to finish fourth.

Collard secured 64 per cent of the vote from BTCC fans, putting him well ahead of double race winner Colin Turkington (14 per cent) and home hero Paul O'Neill (10 per cent).

It makes Collard the first driver to secure the Champagne Moment title on two occasions, having picked up the award following the Knockhill race weekend last year.

“I'm absolutely delighted to win this award again and become the first BTCC driver to receive it twice,” he said. “It's a huge honour to know that people appreciate the effort you put in on the track, so I have to thank everyone who took the time to vote for me.

“I had a great run in the third race at Oulton and I guess spectators must have enjoyed it as much as I did in the driving seat. I'm really enjoying my racing this season and this award is another big confidence booster as we head to Croft looking for more top results.”

Neil Sheffield was picked at random to win a bottle of champagne and he will now win a pair of tickets to a future BTCC race of his choice.
