Four drivers tasted title success in the Max5 Racing Championship this past season as the one-make category boasted bumper grids and blockbuster entertainment.
Conceptualised to produce exciting racing at an affordable price, the Mazda-based series’ slogan of ‘take it to the max’ was in full force as it took top billing at its four rescheduled events.
Visits to Croft, Donington Park, Mallory Park and Silverstone served up a total of eight enthralling contests, each of which had pulses racing both behind the wheel and on the spectators bankings.
Having been the benchmark for a number years, Paul Roddison continued to showcase why he is one of the most accomplished drivers in national motorsport as he triumphed in Class A. Roddison chalked up five wins to emerge as a convincing winner ahead of Sam Hicks.
Class A also saw the welcome return of former front-runner Jon Halliwell, who was back behind the wheel after suffering serious injuries during an accident at work a number of years ago. Halliwell’s return was a sensational one as he bagged a pair of race wins at Croft.
Aaron Bunning and Lee Hollin ended the year tied on points in Class B however it was Bunning who prevailed as champion having had to take a drop score at the season-opener.
Two competitors battled it out for overall honours in Class D and it was Geena Mae Watkinson that got the better of Oli Walden, virtue of completing the full season.
Rounding out the list of champions in the Max5 Racing Championship was Andrew Stacey, who narrowly pipped Richard Smith and the rest of the competition in Class D.
