Bobby Thompson believes this weekend's round of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship gives him his best chance of a podium.

Hornchurch’s Thompson, 22, had a torrid time in the last round at Knockhill, but feels Silverstone’s 1.64-mile circuit suits him perfectly.

“Silverstone is where I got my first-ever podium in a car,”said Thompson of his Ford Fiesta success in 2013 aged just 16.

“I’m not going to dwell on what happened at Knockhill but every weekend, good and bad, is a massive learning experience for me.

“I went full of confidence and I’m not going to let one bad weekend affect how I approach these last two weekends.”

Thompson earned points at Snetterton and Rockingham and hopes to impress on Saturday, before Sunday’s three races, adding: “If we can click early, have a trouble-free practice and good lap in qualifying, I know I will be in the mix on Sunday.”
