Rob Collard expecting to be in contention at BTCC opener

After winning the opening round of the BTCC at Brands Hatch last year, Rob is optimistic that he can repeat his success. He believes that the circuit is ideally suited to the BMW 125i M-Sport and expects the car to be kinder to it's Dunlop Sport Maxx tyres than some of his closest rivals.

Rob commented 'the rear-wheel drive BMW is probably the best car in the BTCC in terms of traction and is very good to the tyres so you can usually coax some good speed out of it at the end of a race when some of the other drivers are struggling a bit.'

Looking ahead to the season Rob said 'Race wins are certainly the aim for this season and I'd like to think that the improvements made to the car should make us a serious contender this year.'
