Barnstone saloon car racer Garrie Whittaker maintained his 100 per cent record in the Kumho Tyres BMW Championship with two victories at Snetterton at the weekend.

From a field of 31 cars, Garrie qualified his BMW E36 on pole position on Saturday with an average speed of 90.70mph.

Sunday’s race one saw him make a good start and soon pulled away from the field to take the chequered flag, ahead reigning champion Colin Wells.

In a wet race two, Garrie allowed Wells to go ahead in the first corner but was back in front by the end of the first lap and cruised to another victory to make it four wins out of four in this year’s championship.
