Full-throt­tle thrills on Coastal Cir­cuit

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

THE 750 Mo­tor Club vis­its An­gle­sey Cir­cuit this Satur­day for a one-day race meet­ing fea­tur­ing just two classes.

The RGB Sports 1000 Cham­pi­onship will have two races and the Club En­duro Cham­pi­onship hosts one three-hour show­piece.

The CartekClub En­duro Cham­pi­onship will run its sixth event of the sea­son, where more than 30 teams will take to the Coastal Cir­cuit.

Class C pair­ing of pri­va­teers Steve Hew­son and Matt Nos­siter cur­rently top the points ta­ble in their sub­tle but ef­fec­tive E36 BMW 328i Coupe.

Not even a power steer­ing fail­ure on the way to the as­sem­bly area at Sil­ver­stone last month could pre­vent them tak­ing a fourth vic­tory of the sea­son.

Class B’s Matt Faizey has driven all the races solo to date in his Porsche 968 and lies sec­ond in the over­all stand­ings, just a few points adrift af­ter fin­ish­ing off the podium for the first time at Spa Fran­cor­champs back in July.

He will need to take the class vic­tory on Satur­day to re­main in with a shot of tak­ing the over­all ti­tle from Hew­son and Nos­siter, but play­ing it safe will al­low him just the hand­ful of points needed to wrap up the Class B ti­tle with a meet­ing in-hand, ahead of Snet­ter­ton next month.

Class A has seen four dif­fer­ent win­ners so far this sea­son, most re­cently with Luke Sedzikowski tak­ing his E92 BMW M3 to an in­au­gu­ral vic­tory at Sil­ver­stone last month.

The E46 M3 pair­ing of Andy Marston and Brett Evans has also run at the sharp end of the Club En­duro grid since its in­cep­tion.

The team took a win here at An­gle­sey last sea­son; some­thing that the Hale­sowen duo will be hop­ing to be able to re­peat whilst hunt­ing for their first win of 2018.

Spire Sportscars driver Billy Al­bone might still re­tain his lead at the top of the En­durance Fi­nan­cial RGB Sports 1000 Cham­pi­onship, but it was all about team Mit­tell Cars at Sil­ver­stone last month af­ter the fa­ther-and-son-man­aged con­struc­tor took its first ever 1-2-3 fin­ish in the opener, thanks to Paul Smith, Chippy We­se­mael and Dan Larner,

With the fi­nale set for Snet­ter­ton next month, get­ting the up­per hand this week­end will prove cru­cial in the cham­pi­onship race.
