They team hope to finish in second place in their class at the season’s finale on October 23 at Lydden Hill Race Circuit in Kent.

Chris Middleton, course director, said: “The team worked really hard for the last round and we are really looking forward to having a new engine for the event in October - it should make a real difference.
