Priaulx hopeful of better weekend at Brands

Andy Priaulx is confident of stronger home DTM race at Brands Hatch this weekend.
BMW's Andy Priaulx is hopeful of a stronger performance in front of his home fans this weekend at Brands Hatch following a disappointing opening DTM round at Hockenheim.

Priaulx, who finished a lowly 17th last time out at Hockenheim, believes he can build on the flashes of promise shown amidst the technical issues which ultimately plagued his race.

“My main objectives this weekend are to realise the strong performance that we showed at times in Hockenheim, finish the race and rack up some points,” said Priaulx.

“Being a home race can be an added pressure, but one I feel has to be converted into something positive, which means I want to give my fans and family something to cheer about.

“I never tire of racing on this track and, without doubt, Paddock Hill Bend is up there with my list of the most demanding corners in motorsport.”

The former triple WTCC champion also predicts a heightened importance during a 'hectic' Saturday free-practice as the teams arrive at Brands Hatch not knowing how the DRS and the option tyre will cope at the Indy circuit.

“In many ways, this will be an even busier weekend for me and my engineer as, unlike Hockenheim, we have not tested here with the changes,” said the Brit.

“Therefore, I expect the 90 minutes of free practice to be fairly hectic.”
