Vaulkhard excited for home event

The Tempus Sport team will look to reap the benefits of Harry Vaulkhard's home knowledge as the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship heads to Croft for the fifth round of the season.

Vaulkhard has run strongly in the junior formulae at his home venue, with an unofficial lap record in the Renault Clio Cup and two podiums in the SEAT Cupra Championship.

Now he will look to return to form after a tough weekend at Oulton Park, with the focus firmly on fighting for points.

“Croft is one of my all time favourite circuits and like all the best tracks it offers a bit of everything, some very high speed coupled with middle and low speed technical sections,” he said. “I first ever went round Croft in my Dad's old Morgan when I was a young lad. I was at the first BTCC event there in the 90s and me and a friend were helping to push people out of the muddy car park and charging them a few quid till we got stopped by the farmer! I'm well fired up for this weekend and can't wait to be racing in front of my friends and family.”

Team boss Richard Coleman admitted he was hopeful that previous knowledge would aid Vaulkhard during the weekend and said he was confident of being closer to the front.

“Croft is Harry's local track and he's had lots of mileage there over the years in many different cars so we're hoping that this will help him,” he said. “Also, he'll have plenty of fans cheering him on so our job is making sure we have the best car we can for him for his home race. Oulton Park last time out was a frustrating race weekend for us, as contact in the first race put us right down the order and we had to fight hard to get towards the front. We're hoping to be nearer the front this weekend.”
