MGCC MG Trophy Championship - End of Season Review - Chris Bray
2014 saw Chris Bray embarking on his 8th full season of racing in the MG Trophy Championship. Rounds 1&2 at Brands Hatch saw a strong start for Chris, securing pole for both races. A good start in Race 1 gave Chris the edge and despite a number of challenges from Paul Luti he held onto the lead until lap 13 where Luti briefly got ahead, Chris retook the lead at Druids and continued on to win the race. A slight hesitation at the start of Race 2 allowed Ross Makar to pull ahead, however, by the end of Lap 1 Chris had regained the lead, Luti was hot on his tail managing to get ahead of Chris until Lap 8 when he had to retire with a puncture, this put Chris back to P1 which he held until the chequered flag.
 
Rounds 3&4 were held at Silverstone. Qualifying was a fierce competition for grid positions with the four fastest drivers separated by less than a second, Chris managed to secure P3 for both races. Race 1 was action-packed from the moment the lights went out – Chris settled into P4 until lap 2 where he passed Ross, he held P3 until lap 5 where he passed Luti at Copse. Chris plied on the pressure and eventually finished the race in P2 just 0.646s behind Robertson. A better start in Race 2 saw Chris move into P2 which he held until Lap 6 when Ross edged ahead. Chris spent the remainder of the race battling hard with Ross eventually finishing in P3 just 0.15s behind P2.
 
Rounds 5&6 took the Trophy Championship north of the boarder to Knockhill. Set-up problems for Chris saw him off the pace of the leading pack, qualifying in P4 for both races. In Race 1 he struggled to match the pace of the leading cars, eventually finishing in 6th. A few set-up tweaks including a change to his front springs saw a more promising start to Race 2 with Chris holding onto P4 for the entirety of the race.
 
After power and set-up problems at Knockhill, Chris and the team made a few changes to the car ready for rounds 7&8 at Donington, this was reflected in P1 qualifying for both races. Race 1 started well and Chris quickly pulled away from Robertson and Luti. Luti worked hard to close the gap and an incident with a back marker on lap 10 allowed Luti to pass Chris, Chris then passed Luti on lap 11 with Luti repassing him on lap 12. Chris finished the race in P2 just 0.294s behind Luti. Chris led Race 2 for the first two laps when the race was red flagged, the restart didn’t go as smoothly for him and he settled into P2 until lap 9 where Makar managed to pass him, Chris finished the race in P3 just 0.016s behind Makar.
 
Rounds 9&10 held at Oulton Park saw Chris struggling again with a car that seemed to be off the pace, a disappointing qualifying session put him in P7 for Race 1 and P8 for Race2. Race 1 was red flagged on lap 4 – by the end of lap 1 of the restarted race Chris had made his way up to P5. An off at Avenue put him back to P6 until the last lap where he moved into P4, he also took fastest lap of the race with a time of 1.57.989. Race 2 saw Chris charge up the pack, making up 2 places in lap 1 and moving into P4 by lap 6. He passed Luti at Knickerbrook and spent the remainder of the race battling with Robertson. As they approached the line a tap from Luti pushed Chris ahead and he finished in P2 0.001s ahead of Robertson. Chris took fastest lap of the race with a time of 1.57.368 and was awarded Driver of the Race.
 
The final two rounds of the Championship were at Snetterton, points were tight with the top 6 drivers, including Chris, all still in with a chance of taking the Championship. After qualifying P1 for both races Chris got a good start in Race 1, he held onto the lead for the entire race and secured a comfortable win. Lap 1 of Race 2 saw Chris lose P1 to Luti, on lap 6 Makar made the move on Chris to take P2, Chris finished the race in P3 but a penalty for Makar saw Chris moved up to P2. These two race results were enough to secure Chris enough points to take his 3rd MG Trophy title – making him the first driver to win the title more than twice!

MGCC MG Trophy Championship - 6th September - Chris Bray
A difficult qualifying session including a couple of spins whilst exploring the new 720 compound slicks resulted in Chris taking P7 for Race 1 and P8 for Race 2.

Race 1 started well and by lap 3 Chris had passed Walker and was battling with Luti, however, a serious incident between two Class C cars on lap 4 saw the race red flagged. The race restarted from the original grid positions but by the end of lap 1 Chris had made his way up to P5. An off at Avenue put him back to P6 until the last lap where Cole lost his front wheel and Chris passed Ross to finish in P4, he also took fastest lap of the race with a time of 1.57.989.

Race 2 saw an even better start for Chris and by the end of lap 1 he had made up two spaces and was sitting in P6. His charge up the pack continued, lap 3 saw him move into P5 and on lap 6 he moved into P4. A mistake by Luti at Knickerbrook allowed Chris to pass and he spent the remainder of the race battling with Robertson for P2. As they approached the line a tap from Luti pushed Chris ahead and he finished in P2 0.001s ahead of Robertson. Chris took fastest lap of the race with a time of 1.57.368 and his impressive fight for positions also earned him Driver of the Race.

Chris is now 3rd in the overall Championship and is leading Class B with one round left to race.

Racing Updates - 2nd & 3rd August
James Houston - Caterham Roadsport Academy

The Caterhams were out at Brands Hatch this weekend and with a grid of 32 it was a bit if a tight squeeze! Qualifying was tight with the first 28 cars all under 57 seconds - James managed to qualify 8th on the grid for the first race just 0.014s behind the car in 7th.
James has gained a bit of a reputation for his abilty to move up a few positions from a flying start, unfortunately he couldn't replicate this in Race 1 and lost a few spaces on the start. He fought hard to regain the places but damage to his steering arm fairly on in the race caused a few issues with the car and he crossed the line in 9th.
Race 2 saw a much cleaner start and James was able to hold his position. He made a challenge at Paddock and moved up to 6th - however 2 safety car instances and fuel/oil on the track at Druids caused him to lose a few spaces finishing in 8th.

MGCC MG Trophy Championship - 3rd August - Chris Bray
After a few issues with power and set-up at Knockhill Chris and the team had made a few changes to the car to try and rectify any problems. This was refelected in a strong qualifying session which saw Chris achieve pole position for both races.
Chris got a strong start in Race 1, pulling away from Luti and Ross who started in P2 and P3. Luti and Ross continued to battle for 2nd and Chris steadily increased his lead until lap 5 when Luti passed Ross and started to close on Chris.

By lap 11 Chris was back in the lead but by lap 12 it had changed again and Chris was back in 2nd place. Despite pushing hard Chris finished in P2 just 0.294s behind Paul Luti.
Race 2 saw Chris leading for the first two laps - the race was then red flagged after a car rolled at Roberts. Chris lost the lead of lap 1 of the restart and remained in P2 until lap 9 when Makar managed to get past - Chris continued to fight to regain P2 but finished P3 just 0.016s behing Makar in P2.

Racing Updates 12th & 13th July
James Houston - Caterham Roadsport Championship

James was racing at Rockingham this weekend in two races that proved to be action packed from start to finish. Starting 5th on the grid in Race 1 James battled hard with the leading pack moving between 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th place, finally finishing 6th overall.
Race 2 saw the 'Start of all Starts' for James, with him moving from 6th place to 1st place on the first bend. He held this position for two laps, unfortunately a bump on lap 3 saw him spin and put him to the back of the pack. He spent the rest of the race fighting his way back up the pack and finally finished in 5th.

MGCC MG Trophy Championship - 13th July - Chris Bray
Last weekend saw Chris racing in Scotland, the Championship hasn't been north of the boarder since 2011 so the Scottish drivers were keen to use the opportunity to show everyone how it's done at Knockhill! Qualifying was a tough session with the Scottish cars flying, set up problems saw Chris struggling to match the pace, after a few quick tweaks to the car he managed to qualify in 4th.
The car set up still wasn't quite right for Race 1 and Chris was slightly off the pace of the leading pack. He settled into 6th position early on and held this for the remainder of the race. 
A few more tweaks to the set up (a change to the front springs) enabled Chris to push the pace slightly in Race 2. The lead 3 cars were a tight pack and Chris was still unable to maintain the same pace but he comfortable held 4th until the chequered flag.
Despite some disappointing results this weekend Chris is still leading his class. He is now sitting third in the overall Championship standing but with only a few points in it this could all change after the next round at Donington!

MGCC MG Trophy Championship - 21st & 22nd June - Chris Bray
Chris’ weekend at Silverstone started with a tough qualifying session, competition for grid positions was fierce with the top 4 drivers being separated by less than half a second. After battling hard, Chris managed to secure a solid 3rd place on the grid for both races.
Race 1 was exciting and action packed from the minute the lights went out – racing was close between the top 4 drivers and on lap 5 Chris managed to move up into P2. He continued to push hard for P1 with some door-to-door racing at times. He finished the race in P2 just 0.646s behind P1.
Race 2 saw similar battles between the same drivers and was just as action-packed as the first. Chris held P2 until lap 6, he continued to battle hard to gain the place back but finished in P3 just 0.17s behind P2!
After the first 4 rounds of racing Chris is leading both his Class and the overall Championship – he’ll be looking to continue this success and increase his lead in the next few races!
