Team Looking for Points at Snett'

The team prepares for a big weekend in East Anglia.

Just four weeks after a hectic visit to Oulton Park which saw the Mosler pushed into the barriers at the start of race 1, rebuilt in time for qualifying before going on to win race 2, the team are prepping for this weekend's visit to Snetterton.

Sustaining severe front end damage in the shunt at the Cheshire circuit, the team pulled out all the stops to ready the car for the second qualifying session. Following an exploratory lap from Javier Morcillo which identified a couple of problems the car was eventually able to claim P2 on the grid despite, according to Morcillo, now possessing some interesting handling characteristics.

With a race victory in the bag and the overall championship still up for grabs the team returned to their Kemble HQ to fully assess the damage to the car. Speaking about the work to be done team boss Neil Garner said, "There was a lot of damage to the car including the side of the chassis which has now all been completed and the main body section and the door have also had a major repair". The majority of the work was completed in house with Gordon Davies of Tracksport completing the carbon repair work to the mid body and door".

As If there wasn't enough work to do on the car, the Mosler has also benefitted from a replacement engine, the LS7 power plant being replaced for one with a little more life in it.

With the final touches to the car being completed this week the team are confident of a good result at Snetterton. They sit in second place of the Britcar Endurance Championship just 5 points behind the leader David Mason and Calum Lockie in the FF Corse Ferrari 458.

"Never give up! " said a defiant Neil Garner, "Despite the DNF at Oulton were pushing hard for the championship and are only 5 points behind. We're looking to take the lead back this weekend"

Also looking forward to the weekend Javier Morcillo said, "Snett will be a very important round for us, the championship can be helped a lot in these rounds. It's time to get points and get two consistent finishes, which will be key to the championship."

"We have been competitive in every round, but we had a problem with accidents and bad luck, so it's time to get points. After the big crash at Oulton the car will be like new and hopefully we can use it to its best to get as many points as we can. The aim for this weekend is not the win, it's the points."

Entry on Saturday is free and qualifying starts at 10:20 with the 90 minute race 1 starting at 11.50. Qualifying for race 2 is at 15:05 with the race starting at 16:35.
