Knockhill practice pacesetter Tom Ingram takes delight from the performance of his Toyota Avensis but remains mindful of the threat the RWD runners should pose come qualifying ahead of tomorrow's opening British Touring Car Championship race.

Apart from a minor blip at Croft, Ingram has qualified within the top-five - including pole positions at Brands Hatch and Thruxton - on every other occasion.

Ingram was the only driver to go sub 52 seconds during FP2 but expects the times to drop in qualifying as everyone reveals their true hand.

Knockhill has always tended be a stronghold for the RWD car with the last FWD pole position coming courtesy of Jason Plato in 2012.

"I'm really happy. The car is strong and we've made a few positive changes. The pace is some way off last year's though so we expect it to be quicker still this afternoon," said Ingram.

"We need to find a chunk of time - we know where we need to - as we still believe the rear-wheel drive cars will be very fast in qualifying.

"We've been saying all year that it's about the weekend as whole. It's no good setting the pace in practice if you don't follow it up in the races, so it's important we keep improving."
