Dan Lloyd eager to challenge for Oulton Park points

Dan Lloyd says he is hopeful of challenging for points finishes at Oulton Park to get his BTCC campaign back on track.

The MG driver has endured a challenging start to the 2017 season and heads into the fourth meeting of the campaign having failed to finish four of the last six races.

In fact, Lloyd had just one points finish – a 15th place in race three at Brands Hatch – to his name so far, having started the season being tipped as one to watch towards the front of the pack.

Lloyd suffered a weekend to forget at Thruxton with a high-speed accident in race two and a further DNF in race three, but will now aim to bounce back at a circuit where he had enjoyed strong results in the past.

“It’s no secret that we’ve been struggling this season, but with the change over to the new suspension kit this year combined with the new Dunlop tyre and limited pre-season testing it’s been a really steep learning curve for us all;” he said. “Hopefully the things that we picked up from our recent test at Croft will be more relevant here and we’ll be able to stay out of trouble and make some progress.

“The MG Racing RCIB Insurance crew have done a brilliant job to get the car ready for this weekend and have been working non-stop to get us back on the front foot.

“The guys have been busy at the rig since Thruxton, working on the dampers and we’ve made some pretty big changes to the MG6 for Oulton, so hopefully that work will start to pay off in results this weekend.”
