With Snetterton next up on the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship calendar, BTC Norlin Racing driver Daniel Lloyd is looking forward towards a return to the grid after a five week break.
Victory in the final race at Croft before the break highlighted the speed that the Huddersfield based driver possesses. Despite the gap between races, he hopes that he is still riding high on the momentum that only victory can give you.
Plus with this weekend being a special BTCC anniversary Diamond event where the final race is a double distance, double points and nil ballast race. Dan is more than determined to score another great result for himself and the BTC Norlin squad.
“I’m still buzzing to be honest, and can’t wait to get back in the car.“ Said the twenty-six year old reflecting on his victory,
“We finished the first half of the season with the perfect score, grabbing our first ever BTCC win for both me and the team. It was a fantastic feeling and one that I’d like to repeat!
“It’ll be tough this weekend. There’s a lot at stake with the double points on offer and the two qualifying sessions on Saturday could make things interesting.”
Certain rivals up and down the grid utilised a recent two day Dunlop tyre test at Snetterton during the break to try out certain set-ups in preparation for this weekend. Due to budget restraints BTC Norlin had to miss out on running and Dan sees this as a disadvantage.
“We’ve got a bit of catching up to do compared to some of the other teams that attended the two day tyre test at Snetterton in the summer break. Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, we were unable to make the test, which isn’t ideal, but it’s where we are.
“We’re going into the weekend definitely on the back foot against the majority of the grid, we’re all up for it though, and the extra points give us even more to aim for!”
