Fulbeck racing team revved up for Silverstone this weekend
Following their third podium finish in the last round at Snetterton, Fulbeck-based Balfe Motorsport are in buoyant mood for this weekend's Silverstone 500, run over three hours at the Northamptonshire Grand Prix circuit.
“Our aim is to finish in the top five and push for the podium. We now have the confidence, even though I have only driven the car a few times. So it’s all still fairly new and in the early stages of developing the new car,” said Caythorpe's Shaun Balfe who shares the car with pro driver Rob Bell.
