AmD Milltek Targeting More Points From Thruxton Weekend

1 Mins read

After picking up their first top ten finish at Donington Park in the previous round AmD Milltek Racing.com having their collective sights set on adding more points to their tally from this weekend's three races at Thruxton.

Both driver Tom OnslowCole and team manager Shaun Hollamby are confident that the Hampshire track – Britain's fastest circuit – will suit the team's VW Golf.

“Thruxton probably won't be our strongest circuit as its very high-speed and the Golf doesn't have the aerodynamics of some of the other cars,” said Hollamby. “However, we found a number of things at Donington Park and we'll aim to keep moving forwards this weekend. The car has good handling, which you need at Thruxton, and even though it won't be easy, we're definitely looking to score more points and build on the performance at Donington Park.”

“Tom is getting more from the car each time he goes out on track and we are making improvements all the time. If we can come away from Thruxton having collected the same kind of result as at Donington Park, then I'll be happy as now we've broken into the top ten, regular points finishes are our aim through the rest of the season.”

“Thruxton is probably my favourite circuit in the country,” added Onslow-Cole. “I spend a lot of time there working and I'm really looking forward to the weekend.”

“We have a good handling car and are now getting more power from the engine, but I know from experience that the Vauxhall Vectra has both the handling and the power and I expect them to be strong this weekend. Until we arrive at the circuit, it's difficult to know exactly how everyone will perform but I think we're in for a good weekend.”

For Hollamby the Thruxton weekend has added interest. He drove the VW Golf on the team's BTCC debut at the start of last season, and a fortnight after the team passed a massive milestone in the series he has a perfect chance to see how far the team has come.
