Results after round 1 of the 2019 season.
James Hurford takes his first Sprint win with an impressive 159.59 seconds, setting a new class record.
Almost 1 second behind was Dave “S. Greenspade” Greenslade with a 160.52 sec run.
3rd place was Andy Laurence with 160.64 sec, just a whisker off second place.
All very quick runs!
If this is how the season is going to go then it’s going to be pretty exciting! Roll in round 2.
Entries are open for round 3 of the championship.
This event is often well subscribed so get an entry in as soon as possible to guarantee a place
The 2019 have been processed with Motorsport UK and the regulations for 2019 are now published on the MX5Challenge.co.uk webpage
All competitors, new and existing, should familiarise themselves with the changes this year.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve been invited to join Woolbridge Motor Club for a second visit to Manor Farm on June 8th and 9th.
Great excuse for a family trip to the seaside in the warmer months and this nicely fills the gap that we have in June.
The championship rules remain the same so 7 rounds count but we now have: 4 Sprints, 4 Hill Climbs and 4 Autosolos
Entries are open for the Llandow sprint, you can enter by letter (how quaint!) or online here.
When entering, remember to enter ‘MX5’ in the class box as we have our own arrangements for the MX5 challenge. Let’s hope that this event is as popular as the Great Western Sprint (massively over-subscribed).
We do also need Marshalls for the event so if you fancy coming along, speaking to other MX5 owners about the championship and generally enjoying a day of motorsport then we’d love to have the help. Bridge toll is paid for if you come across from England.
After a season-long battle, Andrew O’Malley came out on top overall with James Hurford winning Class A. They will both pick up their trophies at the awards day in February. Well done and thank you to all who took part this year. I’m stepping down from running the championship but I’m leaving you in the safe hands of Andrew O’Malley, who’s moving on to pastures new for 2018. He’ll no doubt be sending a message about changes for 2018 very soon…
Since last Saturday, I’ve had a few queries about modifications and eligibility, so thought it best to remind you of a few key points:
- Stripping out parts of the interior (door cards, trim, etc.) is not permitted with the exception of carpets.
- All standard equipment (windows, stereo, roof, etc.) must remain operable.
- Cars must run with a standard roof, although it can be up or down.
- Valid tax, insurance and MOT is required.
As per the sporting regulations in the Blue Book, the penalty for infringements is exclusion.
If you’re still not signed up for Llandow, then you can do so online right now:
