TOCA support bill set to roar back into life at Snetterton

Snetterton will not only play host to the return of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship this weekend (August 3/4) but also the TOCA support package, with five one-make categories primed and ready to take centre stage.

Never short of delivering edge-of-the-seat entertainment, each championship will continue their 2019 campaigns at the Norfolk venue in front of what is expected to be a bumper trackside crowd.

The Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship will enjoy an exciting start to the second half of the season as it stage four races over the course of the weekend. Adding the postponed race at Croft to the timetable, the championship for 14 to 17-year-olds is likely to set pulses racing across all four encounters.

James Hedley holds a healthy advantage at the top of the standings after scoring nine podium finishes across the first 11 races of the season, and the Elite Motorsport driver will be looking to extend his lead further in East Anglia.

Four races give the chasing pack behind Hedley every opportunity to close the gap in the points and leading the hunt will be four-time race winner Will Martin and Zak O’Sullivan, both of whom make up the top three. Throw into the mix Casper Stevenson, James Taylor and Tom Emson, among others, and all bets could be off in the Junior category.

The captivating battle for supremacy in the Renault UK Clio Cup is set to continue too as Max Coates and Jack Young gear up for the latest two rounds of the season. Virtually nothing has separated the pair so far

Jamie Bond enjoyed a star performance at Oulton Park last time out and could well be one to watch, as too will usual protagonists Jade Edwards, Ethan Hammerton, Ben Colburn and Brett Lidsey.

Following on from their appearance at Thruxton earlier in the season, the Protyre Motorsport Ginetta GT5 Challenge will makes its second outing of the year on the TOCA support bill at Snetterton.

Scott McKenna heads into the weekend as the championship leader after enjoying a stellar outing at Zandvoort and holds a 49-point lead. Challengers come thick and fast in the series however with former Ginetta Junior champion Adam Smalley, Gordie Mutch, Josh Malin and Geri Nicosia all firmly in contention.

Capping off the weekend’s action will be a trio of races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost; the country’s leading single-seater series.
