All set for Silverstone!

The 2014 BRSCC Mazda MX-5 Championship starts where it left off last season – on the Silverstone International circuit, and with over forty MK1’s entered we are certainly in for four spectacular races!

The double-header presents a great opportunity for several drivers, including 2013 champion Tom Roche, to put down an early marker for a title bid! Alan Henderson would definitely come into that category, the County Durham based driver having come third behind Tom and Brett Smith in the final points table. Farnham’s James Blake-Baldwin will also be very confident of mixing it with the front-runners – he enjoyed a purple patch in the middle of last season winning several races, which really put the pressure on Roche to up his game.

Simon Goddard finished fifth overall last year and he will be hoping he can pick-up a little of Tom Roche’s magic now that he has moved to the Welshman’s Blendini team. Goddard’s former BLINK teammate, Charlie Charman, also impressed last year and he will fancy his chances of challenging at the top. Will Blackwell-Chambers and Jonathan Clements are both young drivers who were top-ten finishers and they will have gained a lot of experience and confidence from the progress they made.

Two drivers with a lot of previous experience of racing Mazdas are Jason and Kris Greatrex, who return to the championship this season after a couple of years with other clubs. The Cardiff based brothers will be hoping the more competitive nature of racing in the BRSCC Mk1 championship will spur them onto greater glory!!

In addition to the many old hands who are returning for another campaign, we also have nine drivers who are all completely new to the championship – so a very warm welcome to them all. Amongst their number is David Staples (#2), whose day job is flying Hercules transport aircraft for the RAF!
