Poringland ace looks to build on maiden Clio win

Josh Files will be looking to build upon his first Renault UK Clio Cup victory, which also put him in the lead of the championship, as the series resumes at Snetterton this weekend.

The Poringland racer was relieved that he was able to take that maiden victory 'and get that monkey off my back' and is looking to build upon his point scoring consistence to maintain the momentum which sees the Bacs supported driver with a three point lead.

Paul Rivett is currently Files' chief rival and while the former champion has regularly clocked up points on the Norfolk track Files' confidence should see the local racer maintain his lead come the end of the day.

Carl Breeze needs another stellar performance on his home track if he is to retain his Ginetta GT Supercup title after a highly disappointing time at the previous round at Croft.

Despite five victories to his name the King's Lynn racer is over 100 points behind Tom Ingram and while it's a little closer when dropped scores at applied nothing short of trouncing his rival will put him back in the title hunt.

It will be intriguing to watch the Formula Ford races and see if Dan Cammish can be vanquished for the first time this season as he has a perfect winning record from the 15 races this season.

The Norfolk-built Sinter LA12 has shown flashes of speed but the French built Mygale has continued to prove that it is as dominate as Cammish.
