RONAN PEARSON admits he's not sure climbing the winners rostrum in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) has sunk in - but he's eager for a repeat this weekend.

The 22-year-old claimed his maiden race win in the prestigious series during round six at Brands Hatch Indy earlier this month.

He now heads to the Snetterton circuit in Norfolk full of confidence as he aims to challenge for more silverware throughout the 2024 season, just his second in the competition.

Ronan, who drives for the EXCELR8 Motorsport-run Team Bristol Street Motors outfit, said: "I’m still not sure it’s sunk in that I’m a BTCC race winner but now it’s time to bank the memories from Brands Hatch and focus forward on Snetterton and the races to come.

"Obviously my confidence is high given what happened last time out, and we now go to a circuit where we know the Hyundai has been strong in the past, even without the improvements we’ve made as a team over the winter.

"I’ve been right on the pace in the two rounds so far and see no reason why Snetterton will be any different. The goal is to try and get into the Quick Six on Saturday and then fight for three strong results on race day - and ideally grab the Jack Sears Trophy win!"

Ronan, who is from Kelty but now lives in Dunfermline, is 12th in the drivers standings, and second in the rankings for the Jack Sears Trophy, which is open to drivers who, at the beginning of the season, haven't recorded a podium finish.
