After a difficult outing at Rockingham last weekend, Alex MacDowall will hope for three points finishes from the third round of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch.

The Silverline Chevrolet driver qualified on the second row of the grid at Rockingham but made a wrong call on tyres for the opening race and could only manage twelfth place.

Having failed to score again in race two, MacDowall was forced to retire from race three after being hit by David Pinkney's Vauxhall, which in turn had been hit by the Honda of Matt Hamilton.

"Rockingham was disappointing in the end but we proved how quick we can be during qualifying and that's the level of performance we're aiming for again this weekend," MacDowall said. "The team has done a fantastic job for me so far, it's a real privilege to be racing the Chevrolet Cruze in the BTCC, and I'm sure we'll be strong at Brands Hatch."
