Bobby’s qualifying session in the British Touring Car Championship at Thruxton for round 4 showcased his skill and determination on the fastest track of the calendar. Bobby will line up in 13th position on the starting grid for tomorrows opening race of the day.
There is good pace in the car after an impressive performance in free practice 2 saw him finish in 3rd place. Bobby’s qualifying result sets the stage for an exciting race as he seeks to capitalise on the strong race pace in the car to progress through the field during the three races.
Bobby commented. “I feel like today we had a car that was really strong. We showed really good pace in FP1 but in FP2 the car really came alive and we ended up in 3rd.
“Coming into qualifying I was feeling great but to be honest I underperformed in the session and lost some time finishing the lap at Church. I don’t think we had the pace for pole position today but a top-five was definitely possible.
“The car’s great but of course there are always bits you want to play around it to extract more from it. Being in a reflective mood, I need to do more myself as well. Get it right tomorrow and we could be on for a very strong day.”
