Graham Rumsey – BRSCC MX-5 Championship 2018

In 2018 we continued our support and sponsorship of British Racing Driver/ Ex Rallycross Champion, Graham Rumsey as he competed in the MX-5 Championship.

Graham traveled to Brands Hatch circuit in Dartford for Round 1 of the MX- 5 Championship.

The conditions proved difficult with a very damp and slippery track. Graham was also facing the challenge of competing in a new car on a new circuit. During the qualifying round, Graham chose a cautious approach and qualified in grid position 21 for the first race in the ‘B’ group.

The first race took place on the Saturday morning; Graham got some good heat into the tyres on the warm up lap and sat back on the grid, in position 21, awaiting the lights. He had a good start and a small gap opened on the inside seeing him gain a few places in to the notorious Paddock Hill bend, managing to avoid the carnage of the Druids and crossing over the line at the end of the first lap in 15th position.

Another couple of places were gained in the next few laps, but unfortunately a gap closed in on Graham, whilst coming out of Druids, which saw him spin out and having to re-join the circuit in last position. A steady few laps followed after that which meant he was able to finish the race in 15th position.
