There's only three weekends left in the 2019 BRSCC Fiesta Junior Championship racing with MRF Tyres and while it may look like the title is slowly becoming a foregone conclusion, everyone knows that motorsport's unpredictability can change the complexion of the standings in a heartbeat

Points leader Olly Turner and main rival Joel Wren both had a mix of fortunes last time out at Brands Hatch, with both drivers taking a race win but also hitting technical problems along the way too. The only difference was that Wren was able to limp home in Race 2 to score points while the issue for Turner put him out on the spot in Race 1. Even so, six race wins have helped Turner build the advantage he currently has and Anglesey will be another circuit that he'll want to tick off his list of victorious venues.

That said, Wren has done well to adapt to the Fiesta in his first season. Having clinched two wins this season, Joel has shown great development and he will make sure to push Turner all the way to the last race of the season in a bid to overhaul him. Let's see if the Welsh coast will be favourable to him too.

Joseph Loake has been getting stronger and stronger ever since his Pembrey debut and already has a handful of podiums to his name in 2019. Brands Hatch saw him put in one of his stronger weekends as he was able to keep pace with Turner for most of the second race. A first win could be on the cards if he can find a little bit extra pace, but given that he still has at least another season left in his FJC career, this season could now be good practice for a title charge next year.

Also be sure to keep on a look out for both Alfie Glenie and Ted Potts, two drivers who also have their fair share of podium finishes this season but have also had to endure a few ups and downs along the way, including mechanical problems. If they're able to find the right setup and a little bit of luck, they're sure to throw themselves into the mix against Turner, Wren and Loake.
