Jonathan Adam will hope to wrap up the final SEAT Cupra Cup title as the series heads into its final race weekend at Brands Hatch.
Adam, the defending title winner, goes into the weekend with a 17 point lead over Rob Lawson in the standings once dropped scores are taken into account – although Lawson has appealed against a provisional 25 point penalty he incurred for a technical infringement at Silverstone last time out.
If the results of the opening rounds of the year are repeated, then Lawson would take the crown having taken a win and second place back in March, while Adam took third and ninth in the two races.
While he admits the Silverstone weekend had been a tough one to swallow, Lawson heads to Brands keen to let his driving do the talking and he said he was confident going into the season finale.
"We'll be going out there to do the best job we possibly can.” He said, “and we'll be gunning to win it. There's a bit of a dark cloud over us after Silverstone but we'll be alright by Brands."
Adam meanwhile carries a three-place grid penalty into the opening race of the weekend and while the Scot admitted that that wasn't ideal, he said that the Brands Hatch Indy circuit was at least one that was conducive to overtaking.
"It's going to be interesting,” he said. “It's good for the SEAT Cupra Championship that it's going right down to the last race whatever. We've got that three position grid penalty for the first race so it's not going to be that easy, but there are a few places at Brands Hatch where you can overtake."
Heading into the weekend, Martin Byford and Carl Breeze are currently locked in a battle for third in the standings, and could also take second from Lawson – provisionally at least – if results were to go their way.
