British drivers and cars will be going for gold at the British F3 and GT championship round at Snetterton in Norfolk this weekend.

Lincolnshire's Jack Harvey will be aiming to regain his points lead in the Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series, one week after Puerto Rican Felix Serralles stole the position at Spa-Francorchamps.

The championship has seen several changes in the order and there are just two rounds remaining after Snetterton so Jack knows how important a good result will be this weekend.

Alex Lynn, from Essex, is in the title hunt and the reigning Formula Renault UK Champion has been close to victory on several occasions this season.

There have been many different winners in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship too, and two new entries at Snetterton should shake up the order amongst the multi-million pound grid.

Right from its launch McLaren have been aiming their MP4-12C supercar as a Ferrari 458 beater and this weekend will see if it can conquer the prancing horse on the track.

The United Autosports team have swapped their Audi R8 for one of the Woking-built racers as a prelude to a two-pronged attack in 2013 and return to Norfolk after success last year.

Meanwhile the four Ferrari 458s on the grid will face Italian opposition from a Lamborghini LP600+. Also featured amongst the 26-car entry for the two one-hour marathons will be cars representing Aston Martin, Porsche, Corvette, Nissan, BMW, Mazda and Ginetta.
