With three Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship weekends remaining, time is running out for Tom Chilton if he wants to join the title race party in the final round at Brands Hatch.

Just seven points off of fourth place, the Team Shredded Wheat Racing with Gallagher driver heads to Knockhill in a Ford Focus for the first time since 2011. He managed to qualify the car on pole position and head to victory that weekend. Something he’ll be hoping to replicate.

Tom however will not want to replicate what happened when he was on pole position for the final race of the day at Rockingham last time out.

As he was first of the adventurous drivers to reach slippery parts of the track, a venture into the unknown saw him spin his Ford Focus RS out of contention and out of a first possible victory of 2018.

Despite wanting to forget what happened a couple weeks ago. Tom will be using it to motivate him towards better results in Scotland,

“I’m gutted I lost a potential win at Rockingham last time out and can’t believe how disappointed I felt with only a 3rd and a 10th.

“The car has a lot of potential and I need to make sure we maximise the most of what we have this weekend, as I can really feel that win is getting ever so closer.

“I love racing at Knockhill and can’t wait to be back on two wheels having fun again.”
