Peugeot 406 Coupè BTCC works drivers Dan Eaves and Steve Soper completed their final qualifying session of this years www.theAA.com British Touring Car Championship on the famous Indy Circuit at Brands Hatch (7th October).

Dan Eaves and Steve Soper qualified 5th and 7th respectively for the Sprint race (Round 25) and 7th and 5th respectively for the Feature race, qualifying within a 10th of a second off pole position.

Cheltenham based Dan Eaves commented, "That was a really close qualifying session. I qualified 5th for the Sprint but unfortunately I clipped the kerb at Graham Hill bend which knocked the tracking out and affected the handling of the car."

The tight demanding circuit hosts The Sprint at 13.30 and The Feature race at 16.10 tomorrow (Sunday 7th). Spectators can catch the Peugeot 406 Coupè two-seater at 1pm tomorrow as VIP guests are given a flying lap of Brands Hatch with Dan Eaves at the wheel.

Pit walk-about and autograph signing which allows the general public into the pits to meet their favoured drivers for 45 minutes begins at 12.00 on Sunday.

TOCA radio 1602MW will be broadcast throughout the weekend at Brands Hatch and to surrounding villages.
