WSR's Colin Turkington believes he is 'perfectly positioned' to claim his second BTCC title after qualifying fourth ahead of Sunday's three races at the Brands Hatch finale.

Turkington came through Saturday's chaotic wet-dry qualifying session to line his BMW 1 Series fourth on the grid behind title rival Jason Plato who sailed to yet another pole around Brands Hatch.

The eBay Motor's man said it was all about being on the track at the right time during qualifying as the drying track conditions coupled with tyre management caused a strategic nightmare for the BTCC field.

"You've got to be out on the track at the right time. We made the decision early to go out there onto slicks," Turkington told crash.net.

"You just have to be out there to find the dry line and hope it falls your way. We had a good strategy; we were sensible and didn't take too many risks. It was a drying session so it was all about being on track at the right time. So yeah, we've had a great start to the weekend.

"Yeah it's an ideal place to be for tomorrow. I wanted to be at or near the front so the second row is perfectly positioned. We know we have the fastest car from both free practice sessions wet and dry, so the pace is there in the car."

Turkington says he confident his eBay Motors 1 Series machine will be strong whatever the conditions as the 32-year also states he will not veer from his season long attacking philosophy.

"The car is good enough to race at the front. We always aim for the podium. Obviously if there's a chance to go forward, I'll take it," he continued.

"Yeah the car has been good in all conditions. It's probably a bit stronger in the dry but we'll just have to take what comes."

The 2009 champion finally he's fully focused on purely running his own rather than concentrating on playing the points as the WSR-man prepares to see out the championship.

"I just need to focus on my job. I can't think of too many permutations that what potentially can happen. I just need to do my own race and not worry too much about points. That's not normally how I approach the races anyway, so I'll just try and do the same."
