The SEAT team put in a strong showing at Nurburgring, but Kptk92 lost more ground on the Championship leaders
Team SEAT driver Kptk92 has admitted that winning the BTCC Title this season is "near impossible" and is looking ahead to building momentum ahead of a new title challenge next season.

While Kptk92 showed impressive form and a series of fastest laps to take home, he failed to make an impression on Championship leader x Shuffle and team-mate o0o JAM1E o0o, who cut the gap to the top after taking the most points of the event.

"It was a good event for me this week," said Kptk92 on Wednesday night. "I made some good moves, got a win and the car also proved very quick. People weren't taking as many points off of each other as I thought they might have but we'll take 4th overall on the night, it's just a shame we weren't as consistent earlier in the season. The title looks near impossible now so we'll concentrate on winning the Manufacturers Title and if the team can help o0o JAM1E o0o go for gold then we'll see what we can do."

When asked if he would give o0o JAM1E o0o the win should both cars run first and second, Kptk92 replied: "If we are first and second in a race then that means we're both beating x Shuffle. I still want to win races and the target is still to beat my team-mate in every race left this season. Hopefully we're both always ahead of the BMWs so we don't need to worry about letting people by."

Part two of the German double-header takes place next week at the Hockenheimring where SEAT will looking to wrap up the Manufacturers title.
