New challenges awaits Flash Engineering in Denmark

Postat av Johan Meissner kl 14:26

STCC returns to Jyllandsringen in Denmark this weekend, the track where the premiere was held at in April. This race weekend marks the first venue of the year where Colin Turkington has raced before.
”It is a completely different thing going to a race track where you have raced before and hopefully I can put the knowledge to good use. My goal is to finish on the podium,” said Turkington.

Turkington had a strong weekend at Jyllandsringen during the premiere with second in the second race, despite his limited knowledge of the track.
”The results were really good in Denmark last time and the car has for sure progressed since then. The track suits the BMW well and we have got new ideas to try this weekend as well,” said Turkington.

Jan ”Flash” Nilsson is sixth in the championship and has got his sights set on a podium finish this weekend, just as team mate Turkington.
”We have never really got it 100 % right at Jyllandsringen so far, but we have got a theory that we are going to test ahead of qualifying. If that works, I am sure that we are going to fight for victories this weekend, just like at Mantorp and Falkenberg,” said ”Flash”.

Three race weekends remain of STCC 2011 and a total of 150 points. ”Flash” has got 64 points to the lead and Turkington 76 points.
”The point gap is big and it is a tough challenge. But we are not thinking of the championship positions at the moment, we take each race weekend as it comes, aiming to get as much points as possible from each heat,” said ”Flash”.
