Jonathan Adam has admitted that he 'may struggle a little' at Thruxton this weekend as the Scot seeks to build on his impressive debut in the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship.

Adam, the double SEAT Cupra Championship title winner, finished second in race three at Brands Hatch, but only after being hit with a post-race penalty for contact with Jason Plato that saw him stripped of a dream debut win.

Having rebounded well from a retirement in race one, Adam's points haul sees him head to Hampshire in fifth place in the standings and he said he was keen to try and retain his position at a circuit where the BMW may not be quite as strong as it was at Brands Hatch.

"Thruxton is a circuit I know very well as I've raced there over the past four or five years in Clios or SEATs, and I've always done quite well," he said. "However, I don't have any experience of it in the BMW 320si, or any other rear-wheel drive car, so I'll have a bit of adjusting to do. It's also a circuit that doesn't necessarily favour the BMW, so if there is one place where we may struggle a little in the championship it could be Thruxton.

"It might be tough for us to qualify well there, but I think our race pace will still be good. I will be looking for solid points finishes in all three races, and if I can come away still placed in the top five of the championship standings then it will have been a good weekend's work."
