Snetterton set for Caterham climax

Caterham racing has always produced some of the closest contests at Snetterton and with six races on offer this weekend it makes for an end of season carnival atmosphere.

For Graeme Smith the celebrations have been on-going for some weeks as he has already been confirmed as the Classic Championship winner leaving Charles Fitzhugh, John Parker and Jennifer Grace to squabble over second place.

James Sibbett has won six of the Super series races which, after dropped scores puts him a single point ahead of Jamie Waring. While Waring can afford the odd error Sibbett must remain inch perfect if he is to clinch the crown.

In the Mega contest Paul Turley holds a narrow advantage over Trevor Carvey and Myles Packman while David Shaw is still in the running, making for a nerve-racking finale.

The Mazda MX5 Championship could be settled on the Norfolk track as Nick Wright and Jonathan Halliwell are just six points apart while in Class B Paul Roddison has proved unbeatable.
