Blundell set for upcoming BTCC Rounds at Snetterton
Mark Blundell is set for the next rounds of the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship competition this weekend (3/4 August) as the UK’s premier racing series heads to Snetterton for another trio of races.
Prior to the race weekend in Norfolk, Blundell completed the two-day official in-season tyre test at the circuit where he clocked up an impressive 144 laps in his Audi S3 to mark a positive performance where progress was evident.
“The tests we completed at Snetterton a few weeks ago showed that progress has been made,” said Mark. “We do still have a long way to go, but we are heading in the right direction after some positive results in the test. It was the first time we have had some sustained running in the car and it gave us the opportunity to try out a few things we have been wanting to do for a little while.
“We have been making more progress internally over the past few rounds, so I am looking forward to racing at Snetterton this weekend. Being an East Anglian circuit, Snetterton is as close as it comes to a home race for me! It is a track that I’ve enjoyed success at previously and one that I visited on many occasions across my junior career. This weekend will be the first time I’ve raced its new configuration but it is one I am really looking forward to.”
As ever, Saturday will have two practice sessions, commencing at 09:30 and 12:00 respectively, before qualifying is streamed live via ITV Sport at 15:00. Sunday will play host to three 12-lap races. The first will get underway at 11:35 with the second at 14:10. The weekend will finish race three at 17:30. All three showpieces will be broadcast live on ITV4.
