British Touring Car Championship Debut Knockhill 12th - 13th August For the last 10 years I have competed in various rear wheel drive categories from Formula Ford, Porsche Carrera Cup to International Sportcars and here was embarking on my front wheel drive return in the British Touring Car Championship. I lay in bed on Friday evening and wondered what the hell have I letmyself in for!!! There had been a really positive response to the announcement that I would be joining Team Shredded Wheat racing with DUO for the remainder of the season, with some great support from the racing scene as well as the local and national media. It was really nice to receive such backing - but it came with added pressure, as if it wasn’t already a challenge. The media liked the idea that I would be going head to head with Gordon Shedden, triple BTCC champion, fellow Scot and also my brother in-law. We played up to this banter but we always knew that we were racing for different reasons come race day!

Mixed fortunes at Blancpain Silverstone round

Mixed fortunes at Blancpain Silverstone round

It was tremendous to be joining the AF Corse Ferrari squad for round 2 of the Blancpain Endurance Series, which has grown to become the biggest GT championship in the World.
