SV Racing head to their local circuit Oulton Park this weekend targeting continued success in both the Renault UK Clio Cup and Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup.
The Wettenhall-based outfit have won four of the first six races so far in the Clio Cup, taking ten podiums in total with their quartet of drivers, and currently hold the championship lead with Josh Cook.
The Bristolian is aiming to extend his points lead this weekend, but is sure to have his work cut out to do so, not least from his team-mates Alex Morgan, Ant Whorton-Eales and Ash Hand, all of whom will be hoping to be in contention for the race wins.
“I couldn’t be in a better position going to Oulton Park,” said Cook. “I’m leading the championship standings, but I don’t feel under any pressure as it’s still early on in the season and there’s a lot to play for. “I love racing at Oulton Park as it’s such an awesome track due to its fast, flowing nature and I’m looking at bagging as many points as possible to consolidate my lead at the top of the standings.”
In the Ginetta’s meanwhile, the team’s sole entrant David Pittard was the star of the show last time out at Thruxton, taking his first two wins in the championship.
Those wins and a second place finish moved him up to second in the standings, but the 22 year old is keeping his feet on the ground heading to Cheshire.
“Thruxton was one of those race weekends where absolutely everything came together and it would be unrealistic to expect the same to happen at Oulton Park,” commented Pittard. “I’m going into this weekend with an open mind and broad expectations, as it’s still early doors in the season and it’s important to keep my feet on the ground.
“I targeted top fives at Thruxton and that turned out well so maybe that should be the target this time. Oulton Park is a fantastic circuit to drive with endless camber changes and its narrowness leaves no room for error.”
