Ward faces an anxious wait

This weekend at Snetterton will be critical to the title ambitions of Martin Ward who has a slender 10-point margin over his rivals in the Stock Hatch Championship.

The Blofield racer took his maiden category victory in May at his local circuit and will again need to be in podium positions in both races if he is to return home with his lead intact.

Rivals Jake Farndon and Matt Digby have both looked strong in recent races while Ward will be looking for a helping hand from King's Lynn's Shaun Hagen and Craig Bell, from Blo Norton, to take points away from his rivals.

Just two points separate Attleborough's Paul Rogers and Derek Jones from Mulbarton in the RGB Championship. On the series' last visit to the Norfolk track two outright wins by Rogers shot him into the championship lead while Jones struggled for form.

Sadly Norwich racer Richard Jenkins will not be racing after taking his maiden Locost victory at Donington Park to leave himself only six points off leader Nicholas Morley.

Alex von Ehrheim and Scott Mittell will therefore provide Morley's stiffest challenges.

Newcomer Michael Epps currently heads the Formula Vee series after two recent wins at Donington Park but reigning champion Martin Farmer aims to correct the situation on a track that he excels on.
