Simon Belcher, a British Touring Car Championship driver, had a tough weekend after crashing during the third and final race of the Thruxton event.

Simon was reaching the Church corner at over 193 km/h (120 mph) when a steering system failure forced him to leave the track at the run off area. Belcher’s Handy Motorsport Toyota Avensis then rolled over into the bushes.
