Champion Sutton exceeds expectations in Brands opener

Champion Sutton to use car number one as positive motivation

Very little fazes Ash Sutton. The defending BTCC champion sounds as relaxed as ever on the eve of his title defence, which gets under way this weekend at Brands Hatch.

Hunter turns hunted as Sutton breaks clear
