Dramatic racing is expected at the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship's (BTCC) next outing at Rockingham Motor Speedway this weekend, a circuit which possibly offers more overtaking opportunities than any other in the UK.
BTCC's first meeting at Brands Hatch three weeks ago brought two podium finishes for the Luton-based manufacturer with Tom Chilton third in race two and Fabrizio Giovanardi reaching the second podium step in race three.
This weekend's round at Rockingham is the first at the Northamptonshire-venue since 2003. Last time round, the team had two podiums with Frenchman Yvan Muller taking victory in race two to conclude a successful weekend.
In the BTCC's official testing session at Rockingham on 23 March, VX Racing showed competitive times with the all-new Vauxhall Vectra. Giovanardi topped the time sheets overall and team-mate Chilton finished in a respectable sixth position.
