Cook: “Snetterton Plays To My Strengths”


Renault UK Clio Cup points leader Josh Cook is ready to return to action this weekend after the five-week summer break, and has podium finishes in his sights around a Snetterton circuit he feels plays to his strengths.

While Cook may have suffered his first retirement of the season last time out at Croft, dropping his points lead down to fifteen in the process, the 23 year old is feeling confident of maintaining his advantage during Rounds Eleven and Twelve at the Norfolk circuit.

The SV Racing ace carded more race wins and podiums finishes than his competitors over the first half of the season, and heads into the weekend with high hopes after securing a podium finish at the circuit last season.

“I’ve spent far too much time out of a racecar – the mid-season break is far too long for my liking – and I’m really eager to get the season back underway at Snetterton,” said Cook.

“I took a lot of damage in the Croft incident with (Paul) Rivett and SVR has been working flat out rebuilding my car, revamping it and rectifying issues we’ve had in previous rounds, which is promising.

“I had a podium finish at Snetterton last year and the circuit’s abundant mix of slow and high-speed corners requires precision, which plays to my strengths. I haven’t really thought about the championship, I just want to enjoy myself, keep pushing and performing as best I can.”
