After a disappointing race weekend at Knockhill, where a more competitive car was not matched with better finishing positions, Swindon racer Simon Belcher is aiming for a return to the points at Rockingham this weekend.
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.
Dave Newsham's second place finish on home soil at Knockhill marked his best finish for two years, and a best ever for the AmD Tuning team of Shaun Hollamby.
It was AmD's first overall podium finish in more than four years since the team first entered the BTCC.
