Phil Wright on his way to a good result at Rockingham.

MOTOR SPORT: Snettisham’s Phil Wright is up to third place in class A of the 750 Motor Club Royal Purple Hot Hatch Championship after an impressive showing at Rockingham Raceway.

For the third time this season, due to gearbox issues with his Clio Cup car, Wright was forced to compete in his back-up Clio 182 racer.

Qualifying 10th, Wright got an amazing start in the first race and passed several more powerful racers to cross the line in fifth place.

He then secured seventh place in the second race to secure a step up to third place in the title race.

Wright is next in action at Donington Park this weekend.

Wright is supported by Luke Loades of Rounce and Evans Property Management, Shaun Hagen of Shaun Hagen Motor Services and K-Tec Racing.

He also thanked Selina Automotive, All Signs and The Norfolk Building Co (UK).
