The Scuderia Ecosse team heads to Thruxton this weekend knowing that it needs nothing short of two victories to have a shot at the British GT Championship title. With only four races left the opportunities to close the gap to the leader are few but the team is determined to get the job done.

Stewart Roden, Scuderia Ecosse Team Principal
Its clear the odds are against us now but that doesnt mean were giving up. Well fight for this Championship and do everything we can to get it in the bag. We didnt come here to be runners up and I think weve shown we are the fastest out there. We just need a bit of luck so we get the conditions we need to overcome the time penalty.

Car #35 Ferrari 360 GTC:

Andrew Kirkaldy
This should be one of our strongest tracks as its very quick. I still hold the NGT lap record at Thruxton so Ill be making sure I hold onto that. Our job this weekend is to win both races as we need outright victories now. It would be helpful if Lady Luck paid a visit to our garage though as I think she wandered off after Snetterton!

Nathan Kinch
I havent raced at Thruxton before but that wont be a problem as Ill make sure I have a good look at it before the race. I hear its fast and bumpy and a lot of fun in a 360 so I cant wait to get cracking!

Car #34 Ferrari 360 GT:

Tim Mullen
I think this is the most exciting circuit in the country. Its incredibly quick and a lot of fun in a GT car, a thoroughly good challenge. I won here from pole in 2002 and came second from pole last year when Andrew (Kirkaldy) was my team mate so Im hoping for another good race.

Chris Niarchos
I raced at Thruxton last year in the Challenge car after qualifying on the front row of the grid and it was one of my best races of the year. The track is amazingly quick and judging by the close-up racing Ive been having lately I think Im going to have a great time this weekend!
