It was a great feeling to win again – for the first time since Thruxton in May! I felt that I’d proved that point I mentioned earlier, too. It was good to win on a tyre that people didn’t think was up to the job. It was a solid couple of races for us and Andy had hooked me up a good car for both.
Race three was damage limitation, really. From eighth on the grid, with 75kg of ballast, I managed to eventually end up in the same position, which was OK. The weight makes the car lethargic under acceleration and adds to tyre wear so I was happy with where we were.
This amazing championship yet again comes down to the finale on the magnificent Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit. I love the place – it’s a proper, old-school, unspoilt track with ups and downs between the trees and a BTCC car feels edgy round the back there. I can’t wait!
