207 Peugeot Spider Cup - The final run-in begins at Silverstone

11.09.2007: 207 Peugeot Spider Cup - The final run-in begins at Silverstone

SILVERSTONE SEPTEMBER 14-16, 2007 ROUND 6/7

As the penultimate showdown of the inaugural 207 Spider Cup, Silverstone promises to mark a decisive phase of the final run-in to the fight for the 2007 crown, with nine drivers still mathematically in with a shout.

Four of them, however, appear to have a handy edge at the top of the points table, namely Frenchmen Grégory Guilvert, Julien Briché, Dino Lunardi and Julien Schell. The carrot for the champion at the end of the year is a test drive in the 908 HDi FAP, a prospect that has ensured plenty of fierce, exciting battling since the start of the season!

As the only Briton currently in the competition, Simon Moulton would clearly have loved to be amongst those still challenging for the title as the series moves on to his home round. Although frequent misfortunes and mechanical problems mean he is no longer really in the hunt for top spot, he nonetheless has every intention of putting his knowledge of Silverstone to maximum effect to claim his first podium of the year and move up the provisional standings.

His task won't be facilitated, though, by the above-mentioned foursome who will be looking to profit from the last encounters to claim the main prize. Guilvert, who

regained the series lead after August's visit to Spa, Briché, Lunardi and Schell are split by a mere 17 points and, with a win worth 20 points, nothing is by any means a foregone conclusion for anybody, as Schell found out to his expense in Belgium.

The former French Formula Ford Champion travelled to Belgium in front but saw his useful cushion become a 27-point deficit by the end of the weekend.
