Bassett hopes to carry on podium winning momentum
The Quaife Cannons Tin Top Championship rolls into Brands Hatch for rounds five and six on the Bank Holiday weekend and Chris Bassett will be hoping to stand on the podium once again in his Peugeot 205 GTi (30 May).
Round three and four saw Chris reward the Fusion Racing team’s relentless hard work and unwavering dedication by producing an accomplished drive to take two pole positions and two outright wins.
Taking two outright wins for the first time was a special occasion and Chris has hopes of carrying that momentum forward this weekend, while quietly confident and hopeful that the Peugeot will possess the performance necessary to once again challenge.
Chris said: “Hopefully we can build on our last performance, as it showed that the car is developing as we had hoped. The car felt great all weekend and was particularly good on the low-grip surface of the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit in the changing conditions of race two, so I expect to compete towards the sharp end once again.
“We have some new developments for the car which aren’t yet ready for this round, but hopefully they will be ready for the next race weekend, which will push us on again. As a team, we have set a target of reaching the podium in each round this season, and so far so good. We had a great race with Chris Whiteman in his Honda Civic Type R last time out and will be hoping for much of the same this time out.”
Qualifying for Round five of the BARC SE Quaife Cannons Tin Top Championship at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit is scheduled for 09:15 on Monday (30 May), with the two races at 11:40 and 14.45 respectively. Each race will be aired on MotorsTV.
