Knockhill beckons for Team PSP.

Scot David Leslie is set to wow his home crowds at the wheel of his PETRONAS-backed Team PSP Proton Impian in rounds 15 & 16 of the British Touring Car Championship at Knockhill this weekend.

David Leslie, a Scottish legend and one of the most experienced Touring Car drivers, secured one of the fastest laps in the feature race at Snetterton a fortnight ago, reinforcing Team PSP as"the one to watch." Leslie is sure to go well on his home track, having already scored four podium places for Team PSP. Spectator support could be divided, however, as fellow Scot Anthony Reid races for the MG works team.

Leslie and fellow Team PSP driver Phil Bennett will compete at Knockhill on the notoriously twisty 1.3-mile circuit. The championship is still wide open with 6 rounds remaining.

David Leslie said:"I'm looking forward to racing in front of my fellow countrymen-- I plan to give them something to cheer about."

Phil Bennett said:"We've learned so much about our cars in the last couple of races. I think the Team PSP Impians will be very quick at Knockhill."

David Wong, Team Principal, Team Petronas Syntium Proton commented:"We are hopeful of a top six place for the team as the championship edges closer to its finale. David's cool-headed driving skills urged on by the home crowd should be a great combination."

Round 15/16 of the Green Flag 2002 MSA British Touring Car Championship takes place at Knockhill, Fife on 10/11 August.

Green Flag BTCC qualifying takes place at 15.20 on Saturday 10 August, with the Sprint Race scheduled for 12.15 on Sunday 11 and the Feature Race due to kick off at 15.45.
