Four podiums out of four races meant Snetterton was a very happy hunting ground for Paul Rivett.

The four-time Renault UK Clio Cup champion returned to the scene of his first ever British Truck Racing Championship outing – a one-off race in 2017 – and grabbed a double pole position.

From that strong start to the weekend, Rivett was able to secure a quartet of podiums, finishing third three times and winning the third race.

But his triumph did come amid controversy.

“We led from the start and then John Bowler made an ambitious move from a very long way back at the hairpin, which was deemed to be unfair and he was given a time penalty,” Rivett explained.

The Tachosys-sponsored driver added he was delighted with the pace of his MAN TGA truck as he jumped straight into qualifying without any Friday testing.

“The first time I drove it was in qualifying on Saturday morning which makes those pole positions even better,” said WDE racer Rivett. “I only did about four timed laps and two were good enough for pole – I’m pretty happy with that!

“We scored 57 points out of a possible 64 and we come away only one point away from second in the championship. I was really pleased with our pace – we were struggling with our brakes in the first half of the weekend so didn’t have the stopping power.

“There’s still more to come – when we get everything just right we will be a force to reckon with!”

Rivett’s next truck outing will be at Pembrey on October 5-6 as he returns to a circuit for the first time this season. But before that he’s in Fun Cup action at Silverstone this weekend.
