The Stock Hatch Championship is the most popular saloon car series in the country and will be decided this Sunday at Snetterton over two races.
Currently Tom Bell holds a narrow three-point lead over Andrew Tibbs while Joe Ferguson has the advantage over his rivals when dropped scores are taken into account.
Last year Blofield’s Martin Ward took his maiden category victory on his home track and if he can repeat the feat, and the trio ahead of him trip up, he has an outside chance of snatching a top three position.
King’s Lynn’s Shaun Hagen raced to a pair of wins mid season last year at Snetterton but the local racer hasn’t found that form yet while Wisbech’s Terry Roughton will need two strong results to keep his top ten place in the points.
Just a single point separates the Classic Stock Hatch title contenders with Matt Rozier holding the narrowest of advantages over Ed Cooper, ensuring that the final two races will be highly nerve-wracking for all concerned.
Robbie Watt has been attempting to lift the Formula 4 crown for several years and just needs to defeat title rival Erwin Smiech in one of the two races to realise his long held ambition. The BMW Compact Cup series had a distinct North Norfolk element in it with Andrew Tsang, one of the leading lights, backed up by brother Mark while Ryan Bensley has forsaken his Production Cup Astra for one of the German hatch backs.
Just a pair of strong results will enable Michael Comber to be crowned Locost champion after the newcomer has won six events this year.
The final two races on the programme are for the Bike-Sports with Richard Stables unlikely to overcome James Breakell’s 22-point lead in the chase for the crown with racing starting from 11.15am.
