Round 5 Preview - Snetterton
Eugene McManus Junior and Team E15 Racing head to Norfolk this weekend for Round 5 of the Hel Performance Motostar British Championship,
Snetterton is the venue and McManus will be keen to better last season's visit and collect valuable points to keep him in the top 4 of the championship.The "300" Circuit is 2.97 miles (4.78 kilometres) long, Snetterton's longest layout and the second longest racing track in the country.
The Wee Bull will again face fierce competition from the usual suspects of Team City Lifting RS Racing riders Tom Booth Amos and Championship leader Jake Archer, along with fellow Irishman Richard Kerr, Ed Rendell and Storm Stacey.
In 2016 McManus finished 15th in Race 1 and 9th in Race 2, but know's this season's package will give him an opportunity to run in the top 5 and on current form likely to push for podium honours in both feature races this weekend. With four rostrum finishes already in 2017, Eugene could be in with a chance of grabbing that ellusive first win before too long.
"As always we will try our best and hopefully we can get a couple of decent finishes... The opposition is very tough and we dont take any of our opponents lightly. Junior is confident going into this round"
