Ronan Pearson arrived back in Scotland ready to perform. The EXCELR8 driver put the performance down to ‘Obviously home circuit helps’.
In the end Pearson never once finished outside of the top seven. A fifth, a seventh and finishing with a fourth the Scot was over the moon with his Sunday.
“Yeah, absolutely delighted. Home turf’s always been good to me and we’ve shown that. We’ve shown what we can do when you obviously qualify better and have a solid race one, you’re in that top 10 pack and you can get your head down and crack on and exploit what we’ve been working on for a long time.
“We’ve been building a setup around me that really has been working and obviously the results we got were in the top seven all day. If you’d have told me that I was going to achieve that prior to the weekend I’d have ripped your arm off.
“Considering the bad luck we’ve been through. It just seems to have turned and we need to carry this along for the rest of the season”.
When asked about what had changed in the rise of form, Pearson was quick to credit the home support. On top of that, he believes embedding himself in the championship has helped him settle in.
“Obviously home circuit helps, I’m always really dialed in here, but I just, I would say it’s overall confidence in the car with the setup.
“I’m now seven rounds deep into the championship and really, really confident with the car and what I’m doing. Obviously I’m learning the BTCC racecraft thick and fast too. I’ve shown that I’ve come on leaps and bounds with that I would say”.
Moving on forward Pearson is desperate to get back in the car. Having not done the tyre test the EXCELR8 driver will be keen to get to grips quick.
“Yeah, I can’t wait. The fact that what we did at Donington round one was incredible. I’m hoping to replicate something of the same.
“I’ve never been around the GP yet as we missed the tyre test. So I am Really keen, Donington’s a favourite of mine, so let’s see what we can do”.
