Who will be the BTCC's 11th different winner at Snetterton?

Monday, July 18 2016

The opening half of the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship season has seen a remarkable ten winners from 15 rounds. With many more potential victors waiting in the wings, here are five drivers who could add to this impressive tally at Snetterton later this month (30/31 July).

Jason Plato
Surely favourite to become the eleventh different winner of 2016, it's hard to imagine Jason failing to win a race in any season, even after Subaru's difficult start. Now the Levorg has come good it's only a matter of time. Whether it will happen at Snetterton depends on how much power the Subaru flat four engine can produce on the circuit's two long straights.

Jack Goff
The WSR BMWs are back to where they were in 2014, and Jack claimed his maiden BTCC victory at Snetterton last year, so surely he's the eleventh winner? Goff's new to rear-wheel-drive touring cars this year, and his results have been consistent, but he's only been on the podium once since moving to WSR, so he'll need to up his game, but now he's had half a season at the wheel of the 125i M-Sport, now's as good a time as any to break his BMW duck.

Josh Cook
The potential has been there since Josh led for several laps at Donington last year, defending like a seasoned pro even though he was only taking part in his second BTCC meeting. The MG squad has rediscovered its mojo this year, though it must have been frustrating for Cook to see team-mate Ash Sutton pick up the team's first win of the season at Croft.

Aron Smith
Like Goff, Aron has won at Snetterton before, and unlike Jack, he's in the same car that powered him to victory. However the Norfolk round marks 24 months since his third and, so far, last win. Added to this, the VW CC is running the older, GPRM-spec parts, and it isn't going to get any faster. Nevertheless, BKR has prepared the car well, and Aron's been on the podium twice. The super-slippery VW should be fast on the straights too.

Daniel Lloyd
Despite missing the first two weekends of the season, Daniel has impressed with two front-row qualifying slots in the Eurotech Honda on circuits that traditionally favour rear-wheel-drive cars. His race performances need working on if he is to break through to the winners' circle, however, but Oulton Park showed promise and after Croft it's unlikely he'll be trying to win at the first corner again.
