All done & dusted!

The 2013 BRSCC Mazda MX5 champion Tom Roche finished the season in style with two wins at a wet, dark and damp Silverstone on Sunday.

The Welsh flyer was never headed in either race, other than the opening three quarters of a lap in race one, where a surprised Alex Preston found himself briefly leading the race. With his confidence boosted Preston went on to trail Roche home by just under 4 seconds, with Brett Smith third. Daniel Rogers showed his usual consistency to claim fourth and Jade Edwards was a creditable fifth.

In the final race of the year, all drivers coped admirably with the horrendously wet conditions. Brett Smith cemented his place as the championship runner-up with a second place finish and Alan Henderson was third, which also secured him the final slot on the championship podium, a just reward for his dependability this season. Jade Edwards saved her best till last, swapping finishing places from race 1 with Daniel Rogers.

So that’s it for 2013 and we now look forward to the new season, which will start in April – the full calendar should be available next month.

The full results can be found at  SILVERSTONE RESULTS and Jon Elsey’s in-depth report will be published shortly.
