The BRSCC Mazda MX-5 Championship moves into the second half of the 2015 season this weekend with plenty of points up for grabs, courtesy of a triple-header. As with the first half of the season the numbers continue to impress, with 54 drivers reporting for rounds 9, 10 and 11 at Lincolnshire’s mini Nurburgring.

Guildford’s Simon Goddard put down a marker at the Rockingham meeting five weeks ago which said that he is very much in the frame when it comes to title contenders for 2015. Simon left a wet and cold Rockingham Motor Speedway with an impressive haul of 202 points courtesy of second place in the first race, victory in the second plus an extra two points for the fastest lap.

Despite Goddard’s Rockingham success, the most realistic challenge to leader Simon Baldwin is sure to come from the experienced trio of Darron Lewis, Sam Smith and Brian Chandler. With 306 points available in total this is the weekend the challengers need to make their move if they are to prevent Baldwin from claiming his first Mazda title.

We have an impressive six new drivers making their championships debuts this weekend, for what will surely be a baptism of fire! So a warm welcome goes out to Nigel Hudson, Tim Penton, Bryn Griffiths, Simon Orange, Chris Mills and Oscar Rovelli.
