James Thompson has gone from sitting at home with no drive at the beginning of the year, following N.Technology's withdrawal from the World Touring Car Championship, to having full-time drives - and genuine title aspirations - in two different touring car championships, and plans to turn out down under for the V8 Supercar enduros later in the year.
He talks AUTOSPORT's Jamie O'Leary through his year so far.
Q: You recently became the first Briton to win a Danish Touring Car Championship round. How does it feel to have made it into another history book?
James Thompson: I'm really chuffed, it's been a nice couple of weeks. It's really enjoyable. Winning races doesn't happen too much during a season - even in a championship-winning season, you still only win three, four, maybe five races. So it's nice to have won four races in two weeks across two championships. I don't think I've ever done that before. It might be the start of my purple patch - I've waited long enough for it.
