French expectation for N.Technology

Following N.Technology's debut in Valencia, Spain, with the Honda Accord Euro R Super 2000, developed in collaboration with JAS Motorsport, the Italian team now heads to Pau, France for round seven and eight of the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC).

This will be the first time N.Technology race their car on a street circuit but with racing knowledge of the car now acquired, British driver James Thompson is hopeful Pau will bring more success.

"I'm very excited about the races in Pau," said Thompson. "There is nothing like going through a couple of races to know where we're at. After Valencia, we learnt a lot about our car and how we want to work with it from now on; so there should be a significant step forward in Pau.

"The key to doing well at this circuit is to qualify at the front. This is more crucial than at any other track. I know that the team has been working non-stop at the factory since we raced in Valencia to make sure the car does well in France.

"The car is more stable than last year's which should help us, I think the circuit is quite favourable for the Honda Accord Euro R Super 2000."
