The Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup welcomed a new race winner at Snetterton on Sunday, Stefan Di Resta scoring his first victory for the JWB Motorsport team despite heavy late-race pressure in a breathlessly exciting round eight from reigning champion Aaron Mason. Saturday’s race, another thriller, was won by a driver more than familiar with the podium’s top step: double champion Joe Fulbrook.

Mason’s Snetterton double second (ahead in both races of another impressive racing newcomer, Lucas Orrock) puts Aaron back on top in the championship, replacing James Greenway, who suffered a weekend of unremitting mechanical woes. Mason heads Fulbrook by just 10 points as the championship gears up for its summer visit to the Belgian Grand Prix circuit of Spa-Francorchamps.
