WINTERSERIES CLIMAX SET FOR CROFT

Croft Circuit near Darlington hosts the final race action of the 2007 season when the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) holds their Winterseries Race Meeting this Saturday, 10th November.

With a distinct Renault theme, there will be the final two rounds of both the Renault Clio Winterseries and the Formula Renault Winterseries in addition to the Renault Sports Club Trackday sessions for members.

Ulsterman Kris Loane leads the 2007 Formula Renault UK with Michelin Winter Cup ahead of Birmingham driver Riki Christodoulou after a win and a podium finish in rounds one and two at Donington Park last weekend and the pair will be looking for more success at the fast North Yorkshire track.

Welshman Richard Singleton also sampled victory at Donington and he'll be in the mix along with the likes of recently crowned Formula Renault BARC champion Hywel Lloyd from Corwen whilst also in the BARC Class, Jon Lancaster from Leeds is expected to be to the fore.

Defending ELF Renault Clio Winter Cup champion Niki Lanik made the perfect start to landing a second successive crown by taking a double at Donington Park last weekend but the Ashurst Wood-based Austrian will face some more tough competition this weekend in the final two rounds, including that of Jesmond rookie Harry Vaulkhard who will be looking to impress on his local track after claiming a sensational pole position at Donington on his Clio Cup debut.
