Giovanardi: I’m not giving up

Fabrizio Giovanardi has warned Colin Turkington that he won't give up his HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship without a fight as the series heads to Knockhill this weekend for the seventh round of the year.

After a challenging start to the season, the Italian put himself firmly back in the mix with a strong performance at Snetterton last time out – securing two wins from the three races to move second in the standings.

Gioavanardi now arrives in Scotland having closed to within 17 points at the head of the standings, with the VX Racing ace keen to try and bring that gap down further.

However he admitted that he couldn't just focus on catching Turkington, with team-mate Matt Neal and Racing Silverline's Jason Plato still very much in contention.

“The title is still a four way fight with Colin, Matt, Jason and myself all very evenly matched,” he said. “I don't mind that I'm not currently leading the championship; I just need to be leading it when we reach the last round. Colin might think he has the upper hand but I'm not about to give up my title this season.

“Knockhill is a very unique and special circuit, it's very narrow and a cross between a rally and a road circuit at times which makes it very challenging. I'm sure we can win again this weekend, but it would help if the weather was bad, as we know we're strong in these conditions.”
