Adrian Flux Subaru Racing’s Senna Proctor is aiming for silverware in the following British Touring Car Championship races at Knockhill after scoring his best result of 2019 in the opening encounter.

Proctor equalled his best-ever qualifying result with fifth position for race one, and slipped to sixth in race one in what was a strong showing for the BTCC race-winner.

He told TouringCars.Net he feels the Subaru Levorg suits the demanding 1.3-mile Fife circuit, and was pleased to follow up his qualifying pace with a strong race one result.

“Everything just seems to be hooked up this weekend, I feel good with the car and we’ve come to a track that favours the Subaru Levorg,” said Proctor.

“It’s all going well, it’s pieced together quite nicely. We had a really good qualifying and thankfully I followed it up with a good race.”

“I’ve finally got used to the car, in the second half of this year we’ve had some misfortune and bits and bobs that haven’t gone our way.

“It was a good race and looking forward to seeing what we can do in the next one, two more long races so hopefully we can get on the podium come the end of the day.”

Proctor has struggled after switching from the front-wheel drive Vauxhall Astra to the rear-wheel drive Subaru this season, but now feels he has got used to the switch in layout and feels there is potential for silverware in the upcoming races.

“It’s just getting used to it that’s been the hard bit,” he explained. “I feel like I got there at Croft, the race pace was quite strong there but we had a gear cut issue.

“At Snetterton we had good pace but another issue, it’s just been one of those seasons for me, as everything’s about to go right something then goes wrong.

“It was a just reward for everyone back at BMR to get this result.”

The second British Touring Car Championship race of the day at Knockhill is scheduled to get underway at 14:15 BST.
