Walker Ready For Snetterton Weekend

1 Mins read

Fortec Motorsport‘s Alex Walker is getting set for the next three rounds of the InterSteps Championship at Snetterton in Norfolk.

The 16-year-old made an impressive car racing debut at the opening rounds around the Silverstone GP circuit, taking two second place finishes. Oldham’s Walker hopes to continue his form around the new Snetterton 200 circuit.

Walker said: “I’m really looking forward to getting back to racing this weekend. We had a good test at Snetterton back in April and I feel really comfortable with the car and track now.

“Silverstone was a mega way to start the season, but it also gave me the opportunity to experience a race weekend and I learned a lot which I’ll be taking with me to Snetterton. I’ve used the six-week break to work closely with the team and I’ve been training hard to make sure I’m as well prepared for the weekend as possible.

“The championship is still in the early stages so the main thing at the moment is that we stay consistent and pick up as many points as we can. I’m sure it will be a challenging three races but hopefully we will have a strong weekend and, if everything goes to plan, make the podium.”
