Twelve months ago Kirkcaldy’s Jonathan Adam clinched the Seat Cupra Championship in the first race of the double-header at Knockhill. This weekend the 23-year-old bids to close the gap on championship leader Robert Lawson by winning both his home races.
“This weekend’s hugely important for the championship,” Adam explained. “We started the season slowly simply because we only got the car four days before the opening round at Brands Hatch.
“We never really got the car sorted the way we wanted until we had a test at Rockingham. After that we went to Thruxton and won both races, but by them we were already playing catch-up in the championship.”
Since Thruxton, Adam has won six of the eight races — including both races at Oulton Park last time out —and heads to Knockhill just 22 points behind Lawson with three rounds and six races remaining.
“We’ve got the momentum behind us now and we certainly have no intention of backing off at Knockhill,” Adam, the former Clio Cup champ, continued. “I’ve got a huge number of family members and sponsors coming this weekend as well and I’ve no intention of disappointing them.”
