MX5 Challenge – Results after round 1

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.

See the winning run on this video

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.

2018 Westonzoyland Autosolo entries open

Entries are open for the Westonzoyland Autosolo on May 26th.  I have attached both entry forms (should any current non-competitors wish to take part) but for current MX5 Challenge competitors, please take note of the following:

  • Use the NatB application form

Any non-challenge people are more than welcome to enter, of course.  It’s pretty cheap to enter and it’s a great day out to skid your car around!

Look forward to seeing you there
