With two wins under his belt already, Tom Gamble arrives at Thruxton at the head of the standings. The JHR Developments driver has only finished off the podium once thus far, and is certainly the man to beat after picking up two of the three wins last time out.
Gamble’s stablemate at JHR Developments, Seb Priaulx will be looking to bounce back after a tough weekend at Donington Park. He arrives fifth overall but claimed two Rookie Cup wins here in 2016, so will be hoping the circuit continues to serve him well.
Harry Dyson leads the rookie class as he continues to impress during his maiden season in the championship, having picked up a race win in the first round of the season. Completing the JHR Developments line up is Scholarship winner Adam Smalley, runner up Matt Luff and Jenson Dineen.
The only other man to win a race at Donington Park arrives second in the overall points. Daniel Harper had already enjoyed a pair of third places on behalf of the Douglas Motorsport squad, but took his first win of the season during the second race at Donington. His teammate Kiern Jewiss currently sits second in the rookie class, whilst Tom Canning and Conor Grady complete the team.
HHC Motorsport sits third in the driver’s standings with Tom Wood. The Castle Donington-based driver excelled at his home track, picking up a second and third place. There’s no doubt he’ll be looking for that maiden win this weekend. Having proven he has the pace to challenge at the sharp end, Scott McKenna is one to watch after two fourth places, including a rookie class win last time out. He’s joined at the HHC Motorsport contingent by rookie Ruben Del Sarte and second year drivers, Jordan Collard and Charlie Digby.
Harry King will be looking to close the gap to the leading trio as he chases down his second podium of the season. He will be joined at Elite Motorsport by formal rival from last season, Greg Johnson. Elsewhere, Fox Motorsport return with their rookie’s Keaton Samra and Finley Green whilst Richardson Racing completes the grid with Luke Browning, who picked up his first top 10 finish of the season last time out.
