The local driver will be up against the likes of Simon Horton and Gary Pusey in their Subaru’s along with former National Champion Andy Grant in his Ford Focus.

Series regulars will do battle in the two-wheel classes including Chris Harper who leads the overall championship in his Citroen Saxo; Peugeot 206 drivers Guy Corner and Larry Carter lead the way in the 2000cc and 1600cc SuperModified series while Kieran Curran will be the man to beat in his Vauxhall Corsa. Newly crowned Super 1600 British Champion Jack Thorne will be out to prove the championship was no fluke alongside the rear-wheel-drive Corsa of Allan Tapscott and Brian Jukes in his diesel-powered Audi TT.
A number of local drivers are expected to join the line up with a variety of machinery including a Peugeot 205, Citroen Saxo, Vauxhall Nova, Suzuki Swift a pair of Lotus Exiges, Peugoet 106, Rover Metro and a Mini.
