Snetterton set for Bumper BMW battles this bank holiday weekend

Sunday, May 19 2019

The BRSCC arrives at Snetterton this bank holiday weekend (25/26 May) for an early summer event on the 300 circuit headlined by the Nankang Tyre BMW Compact Cup.

The exciting BMW Compact Cup, a one make championship for race cars based on the E36 BMW 318TI compact model. This series provides an ideal battleground for young drivers getting involved in saloon car racing for the first time as well as seasoned pros who enjoy the thrill of wheel to wheel action.

The competitive nature of the series is reflected in the standings with Ian Jones and Steven Dailly tied on 195 points at the top of the championship with Ben Huntley only five points behind in third. The two title protagonists had an incident on the opening lap last time out at Oulton Park after starting on the front row that allowed Huntley to take advantage and go on to take victory.

Also racing this weekend will be the BRSCC Fiesta Championship, showcasing one of the UK's best selling cars split into four classes. The origins of this championship stretch as far back as 1979 and during that time, racing stars such as Matt Neal, Gordon Shedden and Ashley Sutton have plied their trade behind the wheel of a Ford Fiesta.

Youngsters aged between 14-17 year olds will also get their opportunity to shine on the Norfolk circuit in the BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship.

The event will also feature racing from guests, with Track Attack Race Club and Classic & Modern Saloons in attendance.

The paddock will be open for this event allowing spectators the chance to get up close to these racing machines as they are prepared for competition.
