TEAM AON AIMS FOR SUCCESSFUL SNETTERTON WEEKEND

After a seven-week break, which saw Team Aon yield excellent results in testing, the two-car team returns to racing for this weekend's Round Six of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Snetterton Circuit, Norfolk.

The high-speed 1.95 miles track, featuring two long straights, is set to complement the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) powered Ford Focus, although changeable weather could play its part during the weekend. Both drivers, Tom Chilton and Tom Onslow-Cole have scored three wins so far this season as well as four out of five possible poles.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back to racing after the seven week break especially considering what a strong test we had at Snetterton recently," said Tom Chilton. "We spent the day working hard on our set-up and were rewarded with a positive outcome. My fastest lap of the day was inside the current lap record so I'm confident of getting back to my winning ways this weekend."

"The opposition has been quite open about us being the team to beat this weekend, which is an interesting statement," added Team Principal Mike Earle. "It's flattering but the reality is that they are simply trying the old trick of diverting pressure from them to us. As with every race weekend, we are working hard to optimise our car's strengths and we are of course aiming for as large a point-haul as possible.

"We are aiming for the championships and with four more rounds to go, the target has to be consistently strong race finishes."
