The outcome of MG Car Club series will be decided at Snetterton this weekend with several drivers able to take the title away from current leader Neil Fowler.
King’s Lynn’s James Walpole isn’t an overall title contender but if he can score maximum points in his category he might be able to steal the Class AB title away from Simon Tinkler and help Fowler’s cause as well. Calculators are possibly going to be needed to split Ben Rowe and Shaun Traynor as the pair fight over the destination of the Toyota MR2 title with the former currently holding an eight-point advantage.
Thirty points separate Paul Maguire and Ben Hancy with Ian Tomlinson just a further five behind with 303 available this weekend to decide the fate of the Mazda MX5 Cup title making for a tense and exciting finale to the season.
The Bikesports overall title has already been secured by Joe Stables from Class B, with a clean sweep of nine victories, but it’s all to play for in Class A with Lee Torrie just seven points behind Richard Stables.
The Classic Stock Hatch title is still to be decided with Marcus Ward able to drop a single point from the first round of the series making him much closer to Lee Scott than the 27-point gap suggests.
Michael Winkworth will be aiming to keep his Hot Hatch series lead intact at the Norfolk venue with Rodren Vella his nearest challenger while watch out for Martin Ward in his potent Honda Civic Type R.
Nick Williamson will need to claim maximum points in the BMW M3 Cup to deny Tom Coller the title but more realistically will be looking over his shoulder as David Whitmore and Paul Cook are able to take his second place while Matt Maxted won the last two BMW 330 events and will race alongside Bernie’s V8’s.
The Club Enduro title has been decided in favour of Matt Faizer with the Porsche 968 driver’s total unable to be overhauled. However, the Class A crown could go to anyone of four crews while Lee Emm has the Sports Special championship tied up.
Two BMW events and a Roadsport race concludes the packed programme of 21 races which starts at 11.45am on Saturday and resumes the following day at 10.40am.
