Points at home round for Un-Limited Motorsport
Points at home round for Un-Limited Motorsport

In their first ever home round of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch, Un-Limited Motorsport had a points finishing weekend.

After a tough first race of the weekend, a solid points finish in race two was the highlight of the weekend, after an issue put pay to their race race three.

Qualifying was extremely close and Daryl couldn’t make it out of the first group and into the quick six. Lining up for race one P19 on the grid with a challenge to make it to the points paying positions.

Daryl did well at the start in the opening laps to get past both Scott Sumptomn and Chris Smiley. He set off in pursuit of Aidan Moffar, and took Chris Smiley with him, swapping places in lap five. 

An incident with Adam Morgan and Ronan Pearson pushed DeLeon up to 16th place before Sumpton took the place off him. Then a Cammish puncture did push him up to 16th and one place outside the points. 

Unfortunately for DeLeon on lap 11 he had a mechanical problem that saw him take to the pit lane. He would finish four laps down and started race two from 20th on the grid. 

Race two was a good result for Daryl as he was back in the points, finishing in 14th place, having moved past those in front of him with relative ease, having taken one place on the opening lap. He made up another place a lap later as well. With the safety coming out for Jake Hill on lap 15, it brought everyone together and DeLeon closing on the points.

Crossing the line in 14th place meant that it is where he would start for race three of the afternoon. As he targeted another solid points haul. He got away well on the opening lap and was sitting targeting the Ford in front of him.

He moved up into 12th place by lap three and he was hoping to dice with Tom Ingram and Colin Turkington in front of him and move forward towards the top ten. He nudged past Turkington into Clearways on lap five and up to P11.

He was unfortunately passed by Turkington again and then Andrew Watson and Rob Huff, where he certainly gave as good as he got with his more experienced BTCC racers.

He started to go backwards slightly, but he had a good battle with Kent racer Jake Hill for the last couple of points positions on lap 14.

Then on lap eighteen DeLeon pulled off the track just towards the back of the pit lane with an issue that would end his weekend. Although he managed to get back out of the pits, he couldn’t finish in the points coming home P19.

It was however though another weekend where DeLeon scored points in the BTCC for Un-Limited Motorsport.
