Team Aon Looking Forward To Snetterton

1 Mins read

Team Aon head in to Snetterton and the second half of the season as strong championship contenders following a sucessful test at Snetterton two weeks ago.

The 1.95 mile Snetterton circuit will suite the LPG powered Ford Focus perfectly with the two long straights and high speed corners, but one thing that could upset the results is the changeable weather conditions.

With both drivers having scored three wins along with four out of five pole positions Tom Chilton and Tom Onslow-Cole look good for another victory this weekend.

“I’m really looking forward to getting back to racing after the seven week break especially considering what a strong test we had at Snetterton recently,” said Tom Chilton. “We spent the day working hard on our set-up and were rewarded with a positive outcome. My fastest lap of the day was inside the current lap record so I’m confident of getting back to my winning ways this weekend.”

“The opposition has been quite open about us being the team to beat this weekend, which is an interesting statement,” added Team Principal Mike Earle. “It’s flattering but the reality is that they are simply trying the old trick of diverting pressure from them to us. As with every race weekend, we are working hard to optimise our car's strengths and we are of course aiming for as large a point-haul as possible.”

“We are aiming for the championships and with four more rounds to go, the target has to be consistently strong race finishes.”
