“Snetterton Is One Of My Favourite Tracks” – Morgan


Adam Morgan says that he aims to undo the damage from the previous BTCC round at Croft, and hopes to be competitive once again at a Snetterton circuit which he impressed at last year in qualifying.

The 24-year-old has had a superb season in a Toyota Avensis this time run by his family squad, Ciceley Racing, lying seventh in the championship as the summer break now comes to a close following a fine run of 14 consecutive points finishes, including a maiden podium finish at Oulton Park in race three.

The Toyota man’s only blip was a crash in the final race at Croft last time out that put a stop to that consistent statistic, one which Morgan wants to put right this weekend as the summer break concludes and the racing re-commences in Norfolk.

“My target for the weekend is three finishes and to get back on track after the mistake I made in the final race at Croft, which I am still kicking myself about. I want to be nice and consistent, hopefully from towards the front end of the grid, and to keep the points ticking over.”

Morgan shone on the Saturday when the series visited Snetterton last year, qualifying a personal-best fifth on the grid during his rookie season with Speedworks at a track that he says he particularly enjoys.

The track was also the venue for the official Dunlop test earlier in July, one which Morgan felt was encouraging for Ciceley Racing . 

“It was our first time out since putting the Avensis back together after Croft, so it was a bit of a shakedown to begin with, making sure everything was OK, and then moving on to proper testing. We tried quite a lot of set-up changes, and it was a productive day, our times were encouraging compared with others who were there and who have tested at Snetterton recently.

“Snetterton is one of my favourite tracks – I love the infield bit – and last year I had my best qualifying there. It would be nice to repeat that and to repay the boys for all their hard work in repairing the car.”
