Menu aims to win again for Chevrolet.

Fresh from his victory last time out at Brands Hatch, Alain Menu says he is looking to spring a surprise as the World Touring Car Championship resumes racing this weekend at Oschersleben.

Menu stormed to victory in the second race at Brands Hatch – continuing his run of success at the British venue – and will now look to repeat his form at the tricky German circuit, despite the ballast he will carry into the weekend on his Lacetti.

Despite being laden with an extra 60 kilos of weight going into the weekend, the Swiss ace said he was hopeful of a good result on race day although he admitted that the weight would force him to take a tactical approach to proceedings.

“I'll be nearing the 60-kilo mark on the success ballast scale, so for me the race will be tactical more than anything else,” he said. “Running heavy at a technical track like Oschersleben isn't easy, but I'll be glad if I can come away with a few points in both races. That said, there's always a lot going on in the tight corners, so with some others' misfortunes we still could spring a surprise."

Rob Huff would have ensured a double for Chevrolet at Brands Hatch had it not been for his late puncture while leading the opening race of the weekend and the Briton will look to make amends with his Lacetti running light as a result.

“The Chevrolets always seem to go well at Oschersleben, and with the very positive winter test we had there I have every reason to be optimistic,” he said. “After to our misfortune at Brands Hatch, both Nic and I will be among the lightest cars out there so the first goal of the weekend will be to park my car on the front row of the grid. Then I'd like to convert that to a win and score some good points in the second race as well.

“Oschersleben is a tight, twisty and technical track and our cars always seem to like this kind of circuit. Personally I think it's a great driver's track. So a win is what I'll be after next weekend.”
