There’s a Snetterton showstopper in store for MSVR this weekend, October 7/8, with championship titles to be decided.

Amongst the excitement, Paul Bailey and Ross Wylie will be hoping to become the overall GT Cup Champions, with the Kendall Developments duo holding a 32.5point lead over nearest rivals J&S Racing. However, with four GT Cup races scheduled over the course of the weekend and plenty of points for drivers to fight for, it’s going to go right down to the wire!

Similarly, it’s still all to play for in the Porsche Club Championship with just two races in Norfolk this weekend to seal the fate of two class championships. Pete Morris (Class 1) and Oliver Chatham (Class 2) will look to capitalise on their exceptional form throughout the season to claim the honors this weekend. In Boxster Cup, Jon Lovell has enjoyed a phenomenal season and looked absolutely faultless at times. The #21 driver has now amassed a highly impressive gap of over 100 points in the Boxster Cup standings to his nearest rival, but will still need to be at his very best if he wants to secure the podium places at Snetterton.

The weekend also marks the final round of Bell Sport Challenge Series’ debut season. Snetterton spectators can expect a grid of mouthwatering Ferrari machinery to assemble for one final hurrah in 2023. The series has definitely lived up to it’s aim of providing high-quality, competitive and enjoyable motor racing for passionate ‘Gentleman Drivers’ and there will be plenty of keen onlookers for the final two races of the season. MSVR also bid farewell to the 2023 seasons for two gripping single-make championships this weekend, in Production GTI Championship and Z Cars. Production GTI was born out of passion for motorsport and a drive to ensure that the racing is clean, fair and all cars are equal regardless of budget. The VW Golf championship has continuously proved a hub of fantastic racing in 2023 and it’ll be fascinating to see which drivers secure the final silverware of the year this weekend. Two twenty-minute Z Cars races will provide the perfect platform for plenty of BMW Z4 entertainment in the championship’s final meeting of the year, following three epic events proceeding this one. Will there be a surprise winner coming out on top?

Last, but by no means least, MSVR is delighted to welcome Legends Racing Europe to the grid at Snetterton this weekend for their hotly-anticipated penultimate event of the 2023 season. It’s been a little while since the Legends have taken to the circuit and all will be duly itching to put in a top performance on the challenging 300 circuit.

If retro racing is more your thing, then our friends at Equipe Classic Racing will have plenty for you to enjoy at their season finale event on the Silverstone National circuit. A superb day of action is set in place, with ten lap races culminating in closely matched ten lap finals for the 2023 Equipe Super Sprint! There will be loads of competitive racing, full of hard-but-fair battling from some truly exceptional vintage machinery… what’s not to love?
