Triple British Touring Car Champion Matt Neal says he will do everything he can to assist his point's leading Honda team mate Gordon Shedden to the 2015 crown at the Brands Hatch GP title decider.

Neal still has a mathematical chance of winning the 2015 title himself but trails Shedden in fourth - behind Team BMR's Jason Plato and Colin Turkington - by 37-points with just 67 still left on the table.

If the 47-year old was to initiate a herculean surge to the championship, Neal would become only the second driver in BTCC history to win four titles, joining Andy Rouse at the top of the record books.

With Plato and Turkington still posing a significant threat to Shedden's title aspirations, Neal says his main focus will be to act as his team mates final line of defence, while also helping to guide Honda to the manufacturers' crown ahead of Triple Eight MG.

"With the season heading right down to the wire in terms of the manufacturers' and drivers' titles, there are two key focuses for me at Brands to help make sure we do the business on both counts," said Neal.

"I need to back Flash's push for the top spot in the standings by providing as much support as possible, whilst we'll be aiming to score the strongest finishes we can as a collective to win the manufacturers' championship for Honda.

"There are still plenty of points on offer and everyone knows things can switch around on a sixpence in the BTCC, so we have to keep our eyes on the ball and concentrate on bringing home the trophies."

Unlike Silverstone - where the Type-R still took home a great deal of points - Neal believes the Grand Prix layout of the Brands Hatch circuit should play to the Honda's strengths.

"I love Brands Hatch, as most drivers do. It's got a unique heritage - it's up there with the most famous circuits worldwide - and the atmosphere is second-to-none," the triple BTCC champion continued.

"I'm confident our car will be very well-suited to the track, especially through the high-speed corners - and we will definitely use that to our advantage.

"Personally, my goal is to finish inside the overall top three - that would certainly crown what has been an impressive debut season for the new Civic Type R."
