Ebay team wary of rivals at Silverstone

Despite Colin Turkington stretching his championship lead with an impressive recent double at Rockingham his West Surrey Racing squad remains cautious over its chances at Silverstone next time out.

Turkington’s 2013 championship challenge was effectively ended at the home of the British Grand Prix when contact sent him tumbling out of the final contest last year. Not only is that incident fresh in the memory but team boss Dick Bennetts also believes that the circuit doesn’t necessarily suit the characteristics of the eBay Motors-backed BMW 125i M Sports.
