AS the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship begins to hot up, Adam Jones will be hoping for an improved performance at Snetterton this weekend.
The Solihull driver currently sits ninth in the overall rankings, led by Irishman Colin Turkington, after a slow start to the season.
Highly-fancied Jason Plato remains firm favourite for the event, even though the Chevrolet driver missed the official test session held recently at the Norfolk track.
Plato currently lies fourth in the drivers’ standings behind Turkington, Matt Neal, and Fabrizio Giovanardi – but all three believe that, test or not, he will be a major threat in all three races on Sunday.
“Jason’s shown at several recent rounds he can turn up to circuits where he has not driven that car before, and really be difficult to beat, and I don’t think it’ll be any different at Snetterton,” said Turkington, who has won four of the last six contests.
