After a challenging couple of weekends last time out at Knockhill and Rockingham in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship. BTC Norlin Racing driver Daniel Lloyd will be channelling the thoughts of his maiden victory earlier this season as he aims for more of the same at Silverstone this weekend.

Despite being a mid-season replacement at the Norlin squad, Dan impressed with victory in only his second weekend with the team and this is what he hopes will return when he hits the Northamptonshire circuit this weekend.

Despite getting up to speed pretty quickly, the past six rounds have seen Dan only hit the top ten once. He hopes that this trend doesn’t continue.

Despite being out of the title race on account of him joining the championship late. Lloyd is still vital to the team in their crusade towards the independent teams title. BTC Norlin lie in fourth place just twenty-four points off the leaders. With six rounds to go, it could swing in any direction.

The opportunity to push towards Silverstone glory excites Lloyd no end.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back in the car this weekend,

“The last couple of rounds have been missed opportunities really. We’ve had great pace, but just not got the results to show for it.

“Silverstone favours the front wheel drive cars and I think that the Civic will go well there. I want to make sure that we capitalise on our strengths this weekend and get some good points in the bag.”
