Hottrax Motorsport Racing Club National + Junior TAG Endurance Motorcycle Championship – Round 4 – Snetterton, Norfolk 26th + 27th August 2007.

The Endurance teams arrive at the Norfolk ex-WW II circuit for the penultimate round of the championship; with Harvey Mushman Racing leading the Superproduction 1000 championship, after three rounds, only 4 points ahead of early table leaders, GBMoto holding a respectable lead over Uprite Racing who have not enjoyed the best of luck to date, despite winning the last round at Pembrey in South Wales.

Superstock 1000 sees 120+ Racing with a near clean sheet amassing a giant 85 points over nearest rivals, the Kawasaki Newcastle 2 Team (Kawasaki ER-6) who stand on 28 points. In the ultra competitive Supersport 600 class, the very professional Moores Racing have established their R6 at the top of the table only 18 points ahead of Team Viking, only a shade ahead of M2 Construction who missed the Pembrey round in July. This results in HMR leading the overall championship, holding a 10 point lead over GBMoto and Moores Racing in a healthy third place.

In the 2hr TAG Junior 1000 Championship, Team SOBER with two wins and a sixth are a slender two points ahead of Moto Developments with M&P Racing on their heels in third. ETA Racing enjoy a more substantial 17 point lead over nearest rivals Black Flag Racing ahead of Team Issor.

Whatever happens out on the track, be sure the racing will be exciting, close and the championship tables will change. The 2 hour TAG race commences at 3pm on Saturday the 26th August, this follows a track day in the morning which you can take part in – go on the Hottrax website for details.
