MAX5 Racing
5th August and
again on the 19th August

This year the Eastern Region headed off to support the MX5 racing “MaX5” championship at Snetterton Circuit on Saturday 5 August and then again for an even “bigger do” on Saturday 19 August at Brands Hatch. 

At Snetterton a good turn out of members 5’s parked up in the paddock with the MaX5 teams and in round 7 of the championship Jonathan came in first to help in his bid for the 2006 title.

The Eastern region trip to Brands Hatch was destined to be something a little bit more exciting.  As well as top racing from the MaX5 cars, among others, the main event for us was an exclusive parade lap of the circuit itself.  We had also invited all the local clubs to take part and in the lunch time break between races 40 plus MX-5s took to the circuit for two laps of the track.  It was quite an experience and whilst only at sensible speeds in convoy behind a pace car it still gave us a great feel for the track which appeared neither flat nor straight at any point. 

A huge thanks to John from MaX5 for arranging the laps and thanks to everyone who took part as we were able to donate the £200 raised to the Marshall’s fund.  A parade lap for next year is already agreed, watch out for it, I can highly recommend it.
