Rob Huff arrives to his home event at Donington Park as the Drivers’ Championship leader.

In the first half of the season the Chevrolet man has built up a comfortable lead of 29 points ahead of his team-mate and reigning world champion Yvan Muller.

And there is more. Huff has won six of the twelve races held so far, already matching the record of victories in one season established by Augusto Farfus in 2009 and equalled by Andy Priaulx in 2010.

However, he has never won a WTCC race on the British soil… although he was close to do it, especially in 2008 when a blown tyre stopped him on the last lap when he was leading Race 1 at Brands Hatch.

“My home record is not too bad – with three podiums – but I miss a victory and I think it’s just time I take one. However, my goal remains to win the championship this year, we’ve had a great start to the season and my priority in Donington will be to score as many points as possible, which is more important than a race win. I can’t wait to race in front of my home fans! Their support will be very important and I hope they will cheer for me as much as the Portuguese and Hungarian fans did for Tiago Monteiro and Norbert Michelisz,” Huff said.
