“I really want to get into the top ten at Silverstone, not just for myself, but to reward the boys who work so hard on the cars for the part they play. The BTCC is a team game at the end of the day, and I want to get a points finish for them.”
The incident in race two at Snetterton left the Tech-Speed run team with plenty to do in the two weeks between races, but boss Marvin Humphries said the two Integras were ready and raring to go this weekend.
“Snetterton didn't go to-plan, but the boys have worked hard to get the cars prepared for Silverstone and we go there optimistic of a good weekend,” he affirmed. “There is no reason why we can't run well as we know the car is better than it was last year, but as Snetterton showed, you never know what is round the corner! We'll certainly be giving it a good go.”
Sunshine.co.uk MD Chris Brown agreed that the team was now putting its Norfolk disappointment and misfortune behind it as it looks to impress through the remainder of the year.
“We didn't get the results we were hoping for at Snetterton, but we'll be working hard to put that right this weekend,” he underlined. “We know it won't be easy at Silverstone because the long straights are going to favour certain cars on the grid, but the Honda should also be strong and we go there chasing some good results.
“Paul has shown on numerous occasions this season that he can fight with the best at the front of the field, while John hasn't scored the points he has deserved for some good performances during the year. They were both really impressive in the final race at Snetterton, and I'm confident that they will be able to challenge for points this weekend.”
