"I am still in contention for the championship, but a more realistic goal for me will be to finish in the top three and beat my best championship finish – sixth.
"With the gap between me and second position being 705 points, with 2,400 still to play for, the challenge is set."
In the last round, at Croft, Pocklington finished seventh in the final race on day one, after placing sixth and ninth in the earlier two heats.
Pocklington won the second heat on the final day, finishing with a 3.497-second lead.
"Race two was one of the best races of my Legends Cars career," said the Louth driver.
"The changes we had made the night before made the car work much better, allowing me to come through the field.
"It was great to have the car feeling so good.
"And to top it off, we finished third overall in the points for that day."
