At the wheel of his Ford Fiesta, Tohill will be one to watch as he bids to build up an advantage over his nearest challenger, five-time British champion Julian Godfrey.

Having scored victory at the Silverstone season-opener, Godfrey has switched back to his trust Ford Fiesta and remains behind the wheel of it this weekend as he aims to regain control at the standings summit.

Mike Manning, Roger Thomas, Steve Hill, Nigel Burke, Andy Grant and Simon Horton are all also set to take to the grid in the Supercar class and any one of them could spring a surprise at the sharp end of the grid too.
