Elf Clio Renaultsport UK Cup front-runner, Rick Pearson and his Mark Fish Motorsport team-mate, Paul Lomax will be on hand at Snetterton next weekend, giving circuit rides in Lomax's race-going ActiveShop Clio in aid of the British Heart Foundation.
Last time out at Snetterton, Pearson claimed his first pole position of the season with a best lap time of 1:18.343s. He went on to finish the race- the inaugural Clio Cup night meeting- in second place and will be looking forward to returning to the Norfolk track. "It's a lovely opportunity to help charity and thank a few of the people who supported us over the year, from the avid supporters and the people who have followed my weekly column at 10 Tenths down to the mechanics who have worked the hours ensuring we have safe and reliable race cars each time we take to the track," Pearson says.
The Snetterton Charity Day is an annual two-day event, organised by Brands Hatch Leisure. Representatives from club racing up to the TOCA championships are invited to take part in the weekend, the second day of which is open to the general public. All proceeds are donated to the named charity. In addition to the Clio Sport 172 of Lomax and Pearson, guests will have the opportunity to view the 1.95 mile circuit from a host of racing-spec machines, including TVR's and Jaguars.
Both Lomax and Pearson will take the wheel of the ActiveShop Clio between 9.30am and 3.30pm. Although there will be no charge for invited guests, passengers are encouraged to make a donation to the British Heart Foundation.
