This weekend the BRSCC East Anglian Centre are back in action with a two-day meeting with a difference at Snetterton. Tomorrow's nine races will be run on the 300 circuit and then Sunday’ seven races will be on the 200 circuit.

The Arrowpak Euro Saloon & Sports Car Championship is in action on both circuits and it is an important couple of days for championship & Class B leader Ilsa Cox. If Ilsa can pilot her Seat Leon Cupra to maximum points, it will go a long way to securing the title for the Hove based racer.

There will be a triple helping of action for Alfa Romeo fans this weekend. There is a double header for the Alfashop Alfa Romeo Championship, with a race on each circuit, then on Sunday there is a one-off race for Alfa models manufactured before 1991. In the regular championship, Ray Foley and Anthony George will be aiming to take advantage of the absence of leader Neil Smith, who will be at Silverstone racing his ex-WTCC in the Classic.

Adding to the tin-top fare are some guest championships from BARC South East. The Quaife Intermarque League will be joined by the Quaife Intermarque Saloons who run together with the Cannons Motor Spares Tin-Tops. Many of the drivers in these races will also be racing in Sunday’s Norfolk Enduro Trophy, which is a half hour 'fun' race for steel-bodied saloons.

There is also something for single-seater fanatics, with the Formula Jedi Championship heading to Norfolk for a race on each day. This weekend marks the halfway point of the Jedi season, and sees 2011 champion Richard Mitcham currently sitting at the top of the points table. With three wins already under his belt this term, Mitcham will be aiming to continue his run of form and head the field over rounds 7 and 8.

The Duratecs and Pintos from the BIGprofile Sports 2000 Championship will bring some welcome Sportscar action to the proceedings. Paul Streat’s Swift DB2 heads the Pinto points table, while Mike Jenvey has a slender lead over Patrick Harrington in the Duratecs. Both championships are also eligible for the half hour Trophy race that will close the meeting.
