Dynojet Racing's Frank Wrathall is keeping his expectations in check, and is simply concentrating on getting three more race finishes under his belt, as the British Touring Car Championship heads to Croft this weekend.
Wrathall's NGTC Toyota Avensis has only made it to the chequered flag on two occasions so far this year, with Croft marking the halfway point in the season, but Wrathall is hoping that a positive test session last week will have ironed out the problems that have disrupted his debut BTCC campaign.
“We covered around 200 miles in the car one day last week,” said Lancashire-based Frank, “and there were no significant issues at all. It was a good day – our best yet – and though we are still not 100 per cent performance-wise, it gives me hope that we are in good shape for Croft. No predictions; I am just hoping to have a good run and three solid races.
“It would be nice to end the first half of the season on a high note, ahead of the long summer break, and I have always gone well at Croft – it has a good mix of corners and I like the layout.”
Wrathall will be the only Toyota driver in action this weekend, with Speedworks Motorsport choosing to run Tony Hughes' Avensis away from the TV cameras to do some private development work.
Frank Wrathall will also be taking part in this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, with Toyota inviting him to drive the Avensis on the famous hill course. The event takes place from 30th June-3rd July and Wrathall can't wait to get involved.
“It's another great opportunity for me to showcase Dynojet Racing and the BTCC, and I can't wait to get the Avensis on to that famous hill climb course to see how it goes.”
