Holmes looking for Sprint win at Snetterton

Some of the fastest accelerating cars seen all year at Snetterton will tackle the Borough 19 organised sprint on the 100 layout this weekend.
Terry Holmes is currently topping the British Sprint Championship after victory in the opening round at Castle Combe, but his ex-Formula One Judd-powered Lola was unable to defeat John Graham in the latest contest.
Graham made his seasonal debut at the Croft Circuit, round two of the series, and stamped his authority over the field with his NME-powered Gould beating Holmes by almost 0.6 of a second with the tight and twisty nature of the short Snetterton layout favouring his more nimble machine.
Steve Mills' locally-built Van Diemen and Steve Broughton Dallara are joint top of the two-litre powered cars – and each of them is keen to steal an early-season advantage on their rival at the Snetterton venue.
In the Eastern Regional AEMC Sprint Championship, Bill McKenna from Essex just has his nose in front with his Porsche 996 and the former single-venue rally specialist will take some shifting from top spot.
