The opening round of this season's Dunlop Great and British Motorsport Festival takes place at Snetterton this weekend, with the exciting Mini racers topping the bill.

For generations fans have flocked to the Norfolk venue to watch Minis duel around the fast sweeps of Snetterton and with five events on the 13 race card plenty of excitement is assured.

Attleborough's Jonathan Lewis makes a return to the Mini Miglia series after several years and will undoubtedly shake up the established order, giving Kelly Rogers, Colin Peacock and co a tough time. Hoping to use his extensive circuit knowledge to mix it with the front runners will be Norwich's Tony Le May, who is due a decent result on his home patch.

The Mini Sevens always give good value, with Andrew Deviny setting out to defend his title, but he will have to watch out for the speedy Max Hunter.
