Dan Zelos has his sights firmly set on the Renault Clio Cup podium this weekend at his home track of Snetterton having demonstrated the ability to make the rostrum for the first time.

“I just need to put all three phases together,” explained the Dereham racer.

“I’ve proved I can qualify well, race well and make good starts. I just need to put all three together in the same race and I will be on the podium”.

Currently Mike Bushell has a healthy lead in the title race after five victories, but Lee Pattison and Paul Rivett haven’t given up the chase.

Topcroft’s Harry Webb will be giving his home British F4 races a miss this weekend as his budget only stretches to the remaining two Challenge Cup events.

After eight victories Jamie Caroline has a firm grip on the series with a 67.5-point advantage over Oscar Piastri and he should be able to extend it this weekend.

Linus Lundqvist is currently third in the series with three wins to his name while fourth-placed Alex Qinn is almost 100 points shy of Caroline’s total.

Harry King leads the Shipdham-based Elite Motorsport squad in the Ginetta Junior Championship and has stood on the second step of the podium twice this year – he is keen to make the top step on the team’s home turf this weekend.

Currently Tom Gamble leads the title chase after five victories, but the form is with Guernsey racer Sebastian Priaulx, who has won the last five rounds and is aiming to continue that winning streak in Norfolk.

Callum Pointon leads Ginetta GT4 Supercup Series with his consistency while it’s third-placed Ben Green who currently has the most victories.

Ipswich’s Carl Boardley will have a lot of supporters willing him on to improve upon his two podium visits this season.

The Redline Racing pair of Dan Cammish and Charlie Eastwood have taken all seven Porsche Carrera Cup race wins, but with the former missing this weekend’s events, to take part in the European series, Eastwood has the chance to overtake his team mate in the championship standings.
