Snetterton weekend preview
The MG Car Club host this weekend's events at Snetterton with King's Lynn's James Walpole holding a single point lead in the race to secure the Peter Best Insurance MG Challenge.
The decade long rivalry the local racer has had with James Darby will continue on Walpole's home track and with extra points awarded for pole position and fastest lap each tour of the Snetterton circuit will be a nail-biter.
With a championship title at stake Walpole will need to be on top of his game to fend off Darby's challenge.
The guesting Morgan Challenge will see Snetterton favourite Keith Ahlers challenge Matthew Wurr at the head of the field while Class B racer Sharlie Goddard could wrap up the title.
Pete Foster was narrowly beaten in last weekend's Equipe GTS event and is back again to contest the Ecurie GTS race/ However Tom Smith's MGB is extremely rapid and a double winner this season.
