The first rounds of the BRDC Formula 4 Winter Championship bring
Snetterton's season to a close this weekend, and a busy support
schedule is expected to provide plenty more entertainment.
The youngest son of MSV Chief Executive Jonathan Palmer,
William, makes his single seater debut fresh from two podiums at
the Norfolk circuit on his Radical SR1 Cup debut. He's spent the
previous two years racing in the Ginetta Junior Championship,
taking his first win at Rockingham this year.
Sennan Fielding, Matty Graham and Pietro Fittipaldi are just
some of the drivers already confirmed for the Winter Championship,
which will feature two races on both Saturday and Sunday following
a qualifying session each morning.
A non-championship round of Monoposto will provide more open
wheel competition, and a near-capacity grid is expected.
Motorbike-engined Jedis and Speads will take on the might of
Toyota-powered Ralts and Dallaras with two races each day around
the three-mile circuit.
Jason Timms claimed the highly-competitive MonoMoto title this
year in his Speads, and he'll lead the fight to Ray Rowan, Tony
Bishop and the rest of the two-litre runners. The winner of the
healthy 1600 class is difficult to call, so too is the 1800
The Ginetta Juniors Winter Series will play out during the
weekend with two 15 minute races per day and 15 minutes of
qualifying. It's a one-weekend series, so the winner from this
weekend will be the driver to follow in the footsteps of Josh Hill
and BRDC Formula 4 racer Seb Morris and be crowned the Winter
Completing the bill is a special four-race Open Sports, Sports
Racing and GT event featuring the winners from the Nissan GT
Academy. The four drivers will share driving duties through the
weekend with each driver completing a day's racing. They'll be up
against MR2s, Caterhams and a Dax Rush in their Nissan 370Zs, and
also racing twice each day.
There's guaranteed to be a future star or two on show, and each
race could have a few of their own.
Tickets for this weekend cost £13 on the gate.
