Nicole Drought travels to Snetterton this weekend for the final two round of the Dunlop Britcar Endurance Series. Back behind the wheel of the Valluga Porsche 718 GT4, she lies fifth overall in the standings and second in class, just one point off the lead.
Having tested yesterday, with new driver coach Lewis Plato, the Tipperary CJJ Motorsports driver was in confident form ahead of Sunday’s action at the high speed circuit. “I’m trying not to think about the championship at all, just concentrating on learning, as I have been all year. It is great to be back in the 718 again, I love driving it and we were right on the pace in testing yesterday. Unfortunately, there are two dropped rounds and not one this year, which makes it very difficult to challenge for the class title- but we will be giving it everything. We’ll be carrying decals in memory of John Campion too- so it would be extra special to get a result in his honour!”
Nicole will once again be partnered by the experienced Sean Doyle, who sat out the last round at Silverstone, and the pair are aiming for some strong results on Sunday afternoon.
