The BRSCC Mazda MX5 Championship is back in action at Cadwell Park this coming weekend for rounds 6, 7 & 8 of the 2013 championship.

35 cars will be in action at the Lincolnshire circuit, with them split into two groups based on their qualifying time, giving spectators six action packed races over the two days. Last time out at Croft, Mazda guru Tom Roche maintained his dominance of the marque with a hat-trick of victories. Although the Cardiff racer is clearly the class of the field, there are plenty of talented drivers throughout the grid with many involved in their own private duels.

Alex Preston and Ed Gay certainly come into that category with the pair of them closely matched in all three Croft races. However, it was Preston who emerged with the great points haul with two seconds and a third. Gay was the runner-up in the first outing, and repeated the feat in the second tour, but he fell foul of the Clerk of the Course, who imposed a 30-second penalty for exceeding track limits, which dropped Gay down to twelfth. It was much to the Gay’s credit that he regained his composure to claim the third step of the podium in the final race of the meeting. Ed now lies fourth in the points standings, behind Roche, and the tied pair of Preston and Brett Smith, who showed great consistency at Croft.

Making his first appearance of the season at the Yorkshire circuit was James Blake-Baldwin and he demonstrated that he has the ability to mix it with the leaders by taking an impressive third in the second race, so he will be out to improve on that again. Joining the fray for the first time this season are Jiri Horalek, Dan Rogers and Paul Yeomans.
