Supercars should put on exciting show at Snetterton

Exotic supercars head to Snetterton this weekend to contest the British Endurance Championship three hour event.

The race for overall victory will be a tough battle between the pair of Mosler MT900s, a Ferrari 458 GT3 and the Rapier 6.

Phil Dryburgh and John Gaw were victorious at the previous round in the Italian steed although Javier Morcillo led the opening stages in his Mosler until he found the scenery.

Michael Millard in his potent Rapier then took over the lead but a late spin by team-mate Ian Heward promoted the Dryburgh/Gaw pairing to the top step of the podium.

An early problem for Paul White/Calum Lockie held the Mosler pair to fourth place and they will be keen to put that right this weekend.

Chasing the Viper for the title are the pair of Top Cat Marcos Mantis driven by Sam Head/Kyle Tilley and the quartet of Owen O'Neil/Raphael Florentine/Jon Harrison/Henry Fletcher.
