DONINGTON PARK, Saturday 21 April, 12:00 - Race day dawned damp and chilly, with rain forecast for later in the day, potentially making for some rather interesting racing in the afternoon. By 06:30, the Donington Park Paddock slowly started to come to life, with MGA Motorsport team personnel eager to prepare the two Mazda MX5s for scrutineering.

After an engine failure in his red MX5, it looked like Ryan Cefferty would be unable to race this weekend, but instead he is partnering Nicola Gillatt in her white MX5, whilst dad Peter takes on an advisory role. Tony Rodgers is driving his white MX5, again solo.

The 30 minute qualifying session started at 09:15 on a dry track, but with a chilling wind driving across the circuit. It was a fairly uneventful session, with a couple of yellow flags due to a couple of competitors spinning off the track.

In class 3, the Civic Type R of HE Racing took pole position with a 1:18.843, a fast time that placed the team in amongst the class 2 racers, although in 16th place overall. For MGA Motorsport, Tony placed 5th in class, 22nd overall, with a 1:23.365. Nicola and Ryan were a couple of places back in 7th in class, 25th place, with a 1:24.806.

The 90 minute race is scheduled to start at 14:25 and, although dry and rather warm at the moment, rain is forecast for the race itself, so we could be in for an exciting afternoon, with all 3 drivers hoping to make up several places on the wet track.

What our customers say about us...

The car was always prepared to an excellent standard, the set up MGA provided in the paddock was second to none and made going racing very enjoyable. I learnt more in that one season than any other in motor racing thanks to Mike and the Team at MGA Motorsport.
