BARNES READY FOR FINAL CARRERA CUP RACES AT THRUXTON

This weekend Jon Barnes will be racing in the final rounds of the 2007 Porsche Carrera Cup GB at his home circuit of Thruxton in Hampshire.

The 23 year-old from Southampton will be looking to add to the 3 podium finishes that he has scored in the last 4 races after a strong showing in the free practice sessions at Thruxton back in August.

Jon said, "I am expecting this weekend to be tough because the other drivers in the championship have already raced at Thruxton in May this year. Also, there are no free practice sessions on Friday at this circuit, so I will need to jump into the car and be straight on the pace in qualifying on Saturday morning.

"The free practice sessions were actually run back in August at Thruxton and I had a very encouraging day, ending up third fastest. Hopefully I will be able to get on the front two rows of the grid in qualifying at that will put me in a great position to continue my strong run of podiums.

"I have a lot of people coming to the circuit to support me this weekend and I don't want to disappoint! I am looking to end this season on a high, and Thruxton really would be a great place to get my first win in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB."

Jon Barnes is proud to be supported this season by Technart Printers, Headliners Hair Salon, Attley's Roofing, RE-USE, LA Fitness and Arai Helmets.

The Porsche Carrera Cup GB supports the British Touring Car Championship. Carrera Cup races are shown live on digital, satellite and cable TV channel Setanta Sports, with TV coverage also shown later in the year in the Motorsports UK programmes shown on ITV1 and Men&Motors Television.
