Austin confident after Knockhill success

One year after taking his first race win in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car championship, Rob Austin returns to the Northamptonshire circuit that was the scene of that victory this weekend.

And the Exocet Racing star will arrive at Rockingham brimming with confidence after achieving two podium results nine days ago at Knockhill where he took second and third place finishes – the only driver that day to twice stand on the rostrum.
