BTCC Championship hopeful Kptk92 has played down suggestions that he could be in for a disappointing season.
Kptk92 is one of only one of a small group of drivers who has yet to take a victory this season but he says that now is not the time to worry about it and that it hasn't changed his approach to his campaign.
"In one way, yes, I'm a bit disappointing that I haven't taken a win yet," he said in the post-race paddock. "But fortunately the wins have been shared out quite evenly amongst people so everybody is taking points off of each other. I'm pleased with where I am in the standings considering. I'm still third in the Championship so I'm definitely not ruling myself out of the title fight at such an early stage in the season."
Kptk92 is third in a group of three who have created a solid gap from the rest of the field, which include his team-mate o0o JAM1E o0o and current defending Triple Champion x Shuffle, who saw his lead cut from 23 to 14 points after a night of ups and downs.
SEAT claimed it's first victory of the season with o0o JAM1E o0o leading the way by taking back to back wins in races 4 and 5 at Infineon Raceway on Wednesday. A consistent showing from the duo ensured that SEAT jumped ahead of rivals BMW in the battle for the Manufacturers title.
The BTCC circus moves across the Pacific to Japan next week where rounds 15-21 will take place at Twin Ring Motegi. When asked about what he was aiming to achieve at the next event, Kptk92 said: "to win."
