HEAR FROM COLIN
A super set of results and a fantastic points haul this weekend. Three top 4 finishes is a very good day. We converted our qualifying into 2 strong podium finishes and some heavy points and that’s not always easy in this series. I maybe didn’t have the car exactly where I needed to challenge for wins, but I kept my head down and scored well regardless.
The 3 Series never missed a beat all weekend and this is testament to the continued efforts of the team. The car got stronger and more suited to my style as the weekend progressed, so a big thanks to WSR for this. Knockhill always proves to be a very busy day for everyone, but we handled this well and kept focused on our performances.
It turned out to be a really hot day and definitely physically challenging in the car. It will be important to recover well as we have two more events coming up in quick succession.
