After a five week break, the TOCA support package blasts back into life at Snetterton this weekend (June 12/13) with two championships looking to pick up where they left off last time out at Thruxton and a further three lifting the curtain on their 2021 campaigns.
Taking centre stage alongside the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship at the Norfolk venue, the weekend will also see spectators make a triumphant return trackside for the first time in more than 18 months.
Undoubtedly set to entertain those in attendance will be the Michelin Ginetta Junior Championship, with three races scheduled to play out around the 2.99-mile circuit. At Thruxton, the next generation of motorsport stars arguably stole the show and you’d be hard pressed for them not to do the same again.
Tom Edgar and Callum Voisin shared the spoils at the high-speed Hampshire venue however they were just two of several standout performers. Seb Hopkins, Aston Millar, Freddie Tomlinson and Will Jenkins all featured at the front and each one of them, along with many more, will be keen to become the latest race winner.
The 10th Anniversary season of the Millers Oils Ginetta GT4 Supercup begins this weekend and it fields a bumper grid of Pro and Pro-Am competitors that are ready to embark on what will be a frenetic battle for supremacy.
Some of the headline names to line up on the grid include 2020 title contenders Tom Hibbert and Adam Smalley; whilst the likes of Tom Emson, Josh Rattican and Carlito Miracco will all be expected to be in the mix for outright honours too.
One of the most eagerly-anticipated categories to get underway this year is the Porsche Carrera Cup GB. Boasting an ultra-competitive grid, many eyes will be focused on the battle between defending champion Harry King and returning double champion Dan Cammish.
Having been left without a BTCC drive this season, Cammish has returned to the series he once dominated and is set to take the fight to King, who reigned supreme in dominant fashion last year. It won’t just be about Cammish and King though, with a host of renowned names eager to make their mark.
James Dorlin, Kiern Jewiss, Lewis Plato, Lorcan Hanafin and Jamie Orton are just a handful of drivers that could stake their claim to what is already being billed as one of the closest Carrera Cup GB seasons in recent memory.
Another championship that is set to blast into life will be the MINI CHALLENGE JCW. The one-make series proved to be a smash-hit last year on the TOCA package and more edge-of-the-seat thrills are expected once again this year.
With a blend of experienced and rookie drivers making up this year’s grid, all bets look to be off as the chase to follow in the footsteps of 2020 champion Nathan Harrison kicks off.
Rounding out the weekend’s action will be a trio of races from the F4 British Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. Home to the latest crop of single-seater stars, James Hedley holds the early advantage after claiming a pair of wins at Thruxton.
