The winner of the 2014 BRSCC Mazda MX-5 Championship will be decided this weekend at Donington Park.....

Title favourite James Blake-Baldwin’s holds a twenty-four point advantage over Alan Henderson, so while it is certainly James’ title his to lose; it is not cut and dried just yet especially as the weekend offers an opportunity of bountiful points as it is a triple-header. The two group system also offers Alan further hope of reeling James in. If some misfortune where to befall the Farnham racer and he found himself relegated to the second tier his point scoring chances would be severely diminished.  All will be known come 6pm on Sunday!

It is a great turn out for the final meeting with 49 cars entered. There are a few new drivers making their championship debuts this weekend, so a very warm welcome to Barry Ward, Cameron Thompson, Ahmed Binkhanen, Paul Brown and Russ Lindsay. Russ will be making a belated debut as having qualified at Rockingham he had to abort and return home as his daughter had broken her arm! Not new, but returning after 4 years is Richard Breland, although he is certainly no stranger to the MX-5 paddock as he is the boss of Blink Motorsport, who have run cars in the championship for many seasons. A very late entry is Piers Chandler who last raced in the championship at the last race of the 2013 season. Welcome back!
