Double Disappointment for Ben in Spa Weekend For the first time, the young Brit was to race 2 cars on the same weekend, a Moser in Belcar and a BMW Supertourer in the Belgium Touring Car championship, known as the BTCS. Testing went well, with the 2 cars near the top of the timesheets throughout both free practices.

Qualifying also showed they had more than enough pace, with pole in class in the Mosler and 2nd in the BMW.

Unfortunately, after qualifying disaster struck, when a problem was discovered first with the Mosler and then the BMW, meaning the team had to withdraw both cars and go home without even making the start.

Ben was gutted afterwards. ďIím really sad that we werenít able to race. The cars have been quick all weekend and the team have done a great job and made me feel really welcome. I thought we could have had a good result and definitely challenged for the podium. Itís a shame for everyone, Dave, Del and the team have all been brilliant, so Iím just disappointed we couldnít get the result they all deserved. Hopefully weíll all race together again at some point.Ē
