Brett Lidsey decided to show his race craft prowess the difficult way last time out at Snetterton when a poor qualifying session meant he had to work hard from the back of the grid to gain points in both Renault UK Clio Cup races.

The MRM Racing driver is now hoping for an easier time of it at Rockingham this weekend as he aims towards top ten finishes.

Confidence is high with the Northleet driver as he considers that only misfortune has stood in his way between him and stronger results, his wedding however during the Oulton Park weekend shows that no matter what happens on track, those moments are more important than racing.

Fifth place in the first race at Donington Park this year is something that Brett will be hoping to replicate and plans for this begin on Friday as the Clio Cup has a testing session for the drivers to gain extra track knowledge.

Plus with the strong pace shown in Norfolk, Brett is confident for more of the same,

“Snetterton was a really strong weekend from the point of view of our overall performance, I was really pleased with that.

“Obviously, the off in qualifying gave us a lot of hard work to do and meant we couldn’t show our true potential with the results, but the race pace was strong and I was happy with my racecraft. Hopefully we can continue that at Rockingham.

“Rockingham is obviously a pretty unique track with the flat-out Oval section and the twisty infield, and the racing there is normally pretty close.

“With only six races to go it’s going to be important to score as well as we can, we’ve had a lot of bad luck which has cost us but I’m focused on continuing the momentum from Snetterton and challenging for some big results.”
