Pall-Ex supported racers: Weekend preview

This weekend sees both Pall-Ex supported racers, Adam Morgan and Mark Steel take to the track at Thruxton and Snetterton respectively.


Adam Morgan will compete in the KwikFit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) at Thruxton Circuit in Hampshire, in what is the third race weekend of the championship.



The Lancastrian battled hard last time out to secure two points scoring finishes at Donington Park, following a huge impact in Race One, which saw the Ciceley team work flat out to repair the entire front-end of Adam’s A-Class Mercedes in time for Race Two.


Morgan will be hoping to build on his strong start to the season, and make up places in the championship standings.


The Ciceley Motorsport racer currently sits in ninth in the overall drivers’ championship and fourth in the Independents contest.


Thruxton has proved to be a happy hunting ground for Morgan in recent visits, as he claimed victory in Race Three at the Hampshire circuit last year.


This weekend, qualifying will take place on Saturday 18th May at 3:05 PM.


You can follow Adam’s race day on Sunday live on ITV4.


Coverage begins at 11:00 AM with Race One scheduled to start 12:10 PM with the following two races to follow throughout the day.


Meanwhile, 170 miles north-east of Thruxton, Mark Steel will be racing in the Volkswagen Racing Cup at Norfolk’s Snetterton Circuit.


Pall-Ex’s Director of Sales and Marketing enjoyed mixed fortunes last time out at Oulton Park in the opening round of the season.


Mark secured a solid finish in 12th position in Race One on Easter Monday but was forced onto the grass in Race Two to avoid a heavy collision with cars that had spun ahead of him.


This detour damaged the underside of Mark’s MK7 Golf and he was unable to continue, despite having made it back to the pit lane.


The Pall-Ex man is hoping to push on this weekend, and secure two points scoring finishes, in what will be only his second outing in the 300BHP Golf on slick tyres.


Looking ahead to the races, Mark commented: “I was really pleased with my progress over the course of the day at Oulton Park, and that Race Two incident was really tough to take.


Snetterton was a track I went well at last year, so I’m hoping I can build on that this time around.

My confidence in the car will continue to grow and I will find a rhythm around the circuit, so it should help me secure a good haul of points.”
