Tom Chilton admits his hopes of winning the 2010 BTCC title are now remote
Tom Chilton has admitted that his hopes of securing the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship title are now remote heading into the penultimate round of the year at Donington Park.

Chilton sits fifth in the standings going into the weekend despite winning three times at the wheel of his Team Aon Ford Focus – including a double success in controversial fashion at Silverstone.

With the title race hotting up and races running out, Chilton admits that it will be difficult to try and move himself to the head of the pack although he is quick to point out that anything could still happen through the final six races of the year.

“Realistically I think my chances of winning the driver's title are now remote, I really need the leaders to have bad races, but anything is possible with the BTCC!” he said. “I think our car will be good around Donington and so I really hope we can challenge for podiums in each race. That will help in the battle for the other championships up for grabs, like the Constructors and the Independents titles.

“I've always enjoyed racing at Donington, so I'm looking forward to the weekend.”
