Brundle aims for Snetterton win

Alex Brundle lies seventh in the Formula Palmer Audi championship

Norfolk teenager Alex Brundle will hope to boost his championship standing when he drives on his home circuit at Snetterton on 16-17 August.

The 17-year-old from King's Lynn lies seventh in the Formula Palmer Audi table but could finish the weekend top.

"I had a good start with three podium finishes in the first five races and I'm looking to bring that fight to Snetterton," he said.

"It's my favourite UK circuit and I aim to win or at least score good points."

Brundle Jr is following in the footsteps of his father, former Formula 1 driver and TV commentator Martin.

He has already shown his mettle in a tough competition but knows he will face a battle for supremacy next weekend.

"The field has really closed up this season so it's impossible to predict who will be the main contenders," he said. "There's a great depth of drivers running at a strong pace so I will be thinking of everybody as competition."

Brundle is currently 13 points adrift of series leader 16-year-old Russian Ivan Lukashevich. More than 70 points are on offer from the weekend's three races at Snetterton.
