Snetterton May 2018

Friday, 4 May 2018

With the 2nd round of the Caterham Motorsport championships just a week away it's a great time to look back on the opening round last month at Snetterton.

A packed UPE Motorsport awning of 270R and 310R race cars saw our first trophy of the season as Gary Smith fought back from Race 1 contact to snatch 3rd with a fabulous drive in the 270 championship.

Elsewhere Paul Vernon had one of his strongest weekends to date with consistent top 5 pace whilst another 270R driver havin...g a storming weekend was Tim Child with two top 10 finishes. Ben Wilson come home just outside the top 10 in both races. Meanwhile in the fiercely competitive 310R championship James Beardwell scored a brace of top 10's up against 39 other drivers. Rob Watts in his 310R put in a strong quali lap putting his car 9th on the grid, race one didn't go to plan with a track limits penalty dropping him back several places. A great performance in race 2 see him rise through the field to 9th from a starting position of 22nd, unfortunately the race ended under a red flag and on count back he was placed 12th.

With Round 2 on the weekend of 12th & 13th May in Scotland at the fabulous Knockhill circuit, it's time to pack the lorry and set the sat nav for all points north.

We can't wait! See you there!
