As expected James Blake-Baldwin completed his season’s quest with the minimum of fuss at Donington Park over the weekend, taking two wins to confirm him as the 2014 BRSCC Mazda MX-5 champion.....

As he has done all season, Alan Henderson fought him every step of the way, finishing second to James in two races before concluding the year on a high, winning the last race of the campaign. Thus Alan deservedly finished as the Championship runner-up, just twenty-six points adrift of James’ tally. JJ Clements claimed the last podium position in the final standings, a just reward for his amazing consistency throughout the nineteen-race contest.

Victory in the first B group race went the way of Darron Lewis, who won comfortably from Andrew Caird and Chris Hart. Martin Tolley joined James Blake-Baldwin and Alan Henderson to complete the first three in the first A group race.

The second B group podium comprised of Simon Baldwin, Ben Short and Oliver Allwood, while Will Blackwell-Chambers joined the usual two suspects after the second A group outing.

The final B group race was keenly contested with Cardiff’s Jason Greatrex fighting off a strong challenge from Martin Tolley, who enjoyed a mixed weekend after a DNF in the second tour. James Harris was also in the lead battle and took P3.

The last race of what has been a long and successful 2014 season was won by Alan Henderson, with Blackwell-Chambers again making the top three, this time ahead of the new champion.
