Triple Eight Race Engineering with Collins Contractors are the 2011 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) Independent Team Champions and Rising star James Nash is the Champion Independent driver. It is the 21st and 22nd BTCC title for Triple Eight and also the 5th and 6th in five years or the teamís Vauxhall Vectras which are now up for sale and have raced for the team for the final time Nash secured his title in the days opening race with a fine 3rd place after his only rival for the title Mat Jackson slowed on the penultimate lap with a puncture. Confirmation that the teamsí title was secure came with points gained after a dramatic last lap in race two when Nashís team-mate Ollie Jackson passed Airwaves Racings Leon Griffin with only two corners to go.

James Nash: ďYeah, itís great. Weíve worked hard all year and finished every race. Thatís good for the team and it shows just how reliable cars they make. Weíve only finished out of the points three or four times l think so weíve been super consistent and thatís what has delivered the Championship. We got the driverís title in the first race and we tied up the teamís title in the second. Nice and early. I had one more on the agenda and that was to get fourth in the driverís overall. All we needed was a point in the last race so it was close.Ē

ďItís been a fantastic season and the team and everyone from Swindon Engines have done a fantastic job. Thank you.Ē

Ollie Jackson: ďA point would have been nice but Iíve had so much fun. Itís proper racing and Iíve really enjoyed myself.Ē

Ian Harrison, Chairman Triple Eight: ďOur 22nd title, really? See weíve won everything! James has driven really well all season. Heís learnt a lot from last year. The team has done a good job. We havenít had a mechanical failure in two years which must be a record.Ē

ďOllie drove like a proper touring car driver, Iím really pleased considering today was only his second meeting. Heís starting to get the hang of it!Ē
