ROWBOTTOM: “WE’LL DO EVERYTHING THAT WE CAN”
The BTCC Media Team recently caught up with Halfords Racing with Cataclean driver Dan Rowbottom, recording an interview for local BBC Radio. Dan discussed his Thruxton outing, working under the watchful eye of series veteran Matt Neal, and looking ahead to the remainder of the 2021 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship campaign and more.
Looking back on a frustrating time out at Thruxton last month, having initially bagged pole for the opening race Rowbottom said:
“We didn’t really capitalise on what was a really good Saturday. We took pole position, which was lovely, to take our second of the year. We had really good pace, and then it just didn’t go to plan. It is what it is ultimately, and I guess that’s what the BTCC’s about. It’s highs and lows – you just have to minimise your lows!”
Discussing his current position in the Drivers’ standings, he added:
“At the start of the year, when we started the season, I don’t think anyone expected me to be where we are now. So we’ve got to take a positive in that, that’s good. We’re showing people that we deserve to be on the grid. But when you know that you can do more it’s frustrating. I’m looking quite closely at the points table. I know where I want to be when we’re going to Brands Hatch GP.”
