Neal expecting rain at Rockingham
16 September 2011 – Matt Neal is expecting at least one dourpour as the British Touring Car Championship heads to Rockingham this weekend. Following dramatic encounters at Knockhill for both Mat Jackson and Jason Plato, the 2011 season has developed into a closer fight for the crown between Neal and Honda team-mate Gordon Shedden.
“I have checked the forecast and it looks like it is going to rain at the weekend, which would make things very interesting,” says the Champion of 2005 and 2006.
“I have won in the wet at Rockingham before (for Vauxhall in 2008), but it makes things difficult in terms of shaking up the order. It is impossible to predict how the others will get on in the rain, but we know that the Civic should be strong.”
