Four drivers will head out onto the 2.43-mile Grand Prix circuit in contention for the title, with reigning champion Ash Sutton leading the charge, while Jake Hill, Tom Ingram and Colin Turkington look for any and every opportunity to gain an advantage over their rival.
Josh Cook and Rich Energy BTC Racing hold sway in both Independents’ battles, while Sutton and Turkington will also have pressure to perform in the Teams’ and Manufacturers’/Constructors’ Champoinships as their squads continue the hunt for glory.
The latest instalment in the contest for the Jack Sears Trophy saw Bobby Thompson reign supreme at Silverstone last month, and the Autobrite Direct with JourneyHero driver holds a 49-point advantage over nearest rival George Gamble heading into the finale.
