Top ten for Un-Limited Motorsport
Top ten for Un-Limited Motorsport

Kent’s Un-Limited Motorsport netted their top ten Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship finish in the latest round at Snetterton last weekend.

In race one he finished in 17th place, before taking that top ten in a wet, then dry, then wet race two before rounding off the weekend with a 12th place finish, and another solid points scoring return.

A decent start from Daryl DeLeon who moved up from P19 on the grid to P16 just behind Aidan Moffat on lap one.

Then Moffat had contact with Tom Chilton which moved DeLeon up a place and into the points on the second lap.

As he moved on and targeted Ronan Pearson and Dan Rowbottom in front of him. Josh Cook fell back into his clutches and he was dispatched on lap five. 

On lap six it went a bit wrong for DeLeon as he lost the rear and went off for a spin in the grass and back onto the track. He managed to recover and rejoined in 19th place.

As the race reached it’s conclusion. He moved up two places to 17th. Which is where he would finish and start race two from.

With a wet start to the race and cars diving into the pit lane for slick tyres. DeLeon opted to stay out on track and after the start of the race he was up into tenth place on the opening lap.

With three laps gone DeLeon was holding his own in the top ten and trying to hunt down Osborne in front of him. The slick shod runners at this point were not really making any impression on those on wet tyres.

Then on lap five it got very interesting as the rain returned to the Snetterton circuit, which was a massive advantage to those like DeLeon who started on wet tyres. Although the rain wasn’t heavy, it was enough to slow cars down.

Lap seven then saw the rain continue to fall and this time it was harder. With parts of the circuit wetter than others, which again favoured those on the wet tyres. 

With four laps to go it was looking likely that DeLeon was heading for a first top ten finish for Un-Limited Motorsport. That was how it would finish, an incredible result for the young team.

Tenth was where DeLeon would line-up for the final race of the weekend, alongside Kent racer Jake Hill.

He had moved up to ninth position on the opening lap, before he was sideways and then tagged Chris Smiley who then went into the wall. Although DeLeon was nudged by Rob Huff, which then put DeLeon into Smiley.

By lap three he was up to 8th place briefly before being overtaken by defending champion Ash Sutton. Having used all of his hybrid he started to slip backwards towards and passed by the cars who still had their hybrid remaining as the race drew to a close.

It was however his and the newly formed teams best weekend so far of the 2024 season.
