James Walker finished ninth in his class at the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup race at Silverstone.

But Walker felt he and team mate Rob Bell could have done better had they not been hit by the Audi of fellow British driver Allan McNish.

The duo were given a one-minute stop-go penalty for the clash which ended their chances of moving up the field in the six-hour long race.

"Both of my runs were consistent and I think we deserved better," Walker said.

"We have to take the positives from it though, namely the fact that the car ran faultlessly throughout the race," he added.

And Walker says he is now aiming for their next race in Portugal on 25 September.

"We're looking forward to Estoril," he continued.

"I know the track well from World Series and I think we will be quick there."
