Dynojet looking for luck in yorkshire
For although Frank's Toyota Avensis has shown top-eight pace at all four circuits visited so this season, strong points-scoring finishes have been hard to pin down for the Lancashire 25-year-old.
Last time out, at Oulton Park, Wrathall scored a finish in all three races and broke into the top 10 in the finale. He hopes it is an omen for better things to come: "We are just waiting for everything to come together. When everything clicks and we finally get a good weekend I'm sure that it will be very good. We just need a few things to go our way and then we'll be sorted.
"I am sure that speed won't be a problem - we will be there or thereabouts in terms of pace, and at least at Croft it is easier to overtake than at Oulton Park. We didn't do too badly at Croft last year - I qualified fourth and finished in the points twice - so I am quite confident that we'll be quick. Maybe a bit of rain is what we need: that might help!"
Today (Wednesday) Frank will be ‘shaking down' the Dynojet Avensis as the team prepares for the rigours of the Croft weekend. "Fortunately we came away from Oulton Park with the Toyota in good shape: just a few scuffs on the bumpers, really. That was quite important given that the two events are just a fortnight apart."
Wrathall holds 10th place in the Independents Trophy for drivers after 12 of the 30 rounds, with Dynojet 10th among the teams also.
The Dynojet Racing team is backed by Mac Tools, FUCHS Titan Race, Toyota Material Handling, Klenzan, Dyno Drive, Angel Springs, K&N and Graphix.
