Wayne Boyd says he will look to try and secure his second victory of the Cooper Tires British F3 International Series season next weekend in his 'home' round of the season at Silverstone.
Boyd, who took his maiden win in the last event on British soil at Donington Park, currently sits twelfth in the championship standings but will been keen to make strides towards the top ten in an event he classes as his home round – with a base in Silverstone village when he isn't at his Ulster home.
Silverstone will also be the home event for the 18-year-old's T-Sport team and Boyd said he was confident about his chances having impressed during testing at the Northamptonshire venue earlier in the year.
"Our testing pace at Silverstone was really good," he said, "and I think we can be very confident going into it. We have made some aerodynamic modifications now and changed a few other bits and pieces since we last tested there, back in March, so it will be interesting to see how we get on.
"This year there's been quite a lot to learn and I go out in every race with the aim of pushing as hard as I can so that I learn as much as I can. I don't go out there with the aim of trying to finish second; I always go out to give it my best and that will stay the same to the end of the year."
Boyd added that he would be happy to see mixed conditions at Silverstone as he seeks to add to his Donington success, admitting it would improve his chances of a second win.
"It's very difficult to pass in F3 in dry conditions, because as soon as you get close to someone your front downforce disappears,” he said. “When the conditions are a bit greasy it's a lot easier to pass - it all comes down to car control and your confidence in slippery conditions."
