Airwaves Racing celebrate at Brands Hatch

Airwaves Racing celebrate at Brands Hatch

It’s always special to start the season at Brands Hatch and we always want to do well at our home circuit. For me it was a bit of a pressure release and it was great to get some strong results.

Mat did a superb a job at Brands and I’m sure he will keep doing a superb job, which vindicates my decision to nail him down as early as possible last year to stay with us and not let him go and drive one of those Chevrolets.

I’d like to think we can make it into the top five in qualifying, finish there or thereabouts in race one and then go on to get a podium or a win in race two or three. What I don’t want to do is end up in a situation where I’m compromised because I end up getting involved with Colin or Fabrizio. I hope I can qualify towards the front and let all that happen behind me.
