Turkington Upbeat for Mondello

Vauxhall's Colin Turkington is hopeful that his VX Racing team can build on their encouraging results from Croft last weekend as they prepare for the annual visit to Mondello Park

Turkington secured his first win of the season at Croft as teammate Yvan Muller made progress in his title chances - and he is upbeat for his chances on home soil this weekend.

"Mondello is probably my favourite event of the year as I have lots of people I know at the track," he said. "The VX Racing Astra Sport Hatch worked well at the last event and hopefully we can transfer this over to Mondello.

"Both circuits are quite twisty and very technical, so I'll be hoping for a repeat of the podium finishes at the very least. I came to VX Racing to win, now I've got one under my belt I want more."

Muller's win and second place at Croft helped him close the gap to series leader Matt Neal to just 28 points and he is keeping his fingers crossed that the gap can be cut further this time out.

"The strong results helped in the championship," said the Frenchman. "And we still have half the season left. Morale is good and I hope we can keep it going.

"We're strong, but you don't know about the others and whether their developments will come in to play. Mondello is a good track for me, and I will focus on my race plan and continue to develop the VX Racing Astra Sport Hatch, not what the other teams are doing."
