Fantastic news this week when racing driver Paul Maguire, who is sponsored by Landal Gwel an Mor, was crowned 2018 champion in the Davanti MX 5 5 Club Racing Championship.
This outstanding achievement came in what is only the third year that Paul has been racing his Mazda MX5– a superb performance.
This Championship is run by the 750 Motor Club and consists of 18 races for competition licence holders only. The base car is the popular Mazda MX5 mk1 1.6. There are strict regulations governing the specification of the cars, meaning that success is dependent on the skill of the driver, rather than the funds they have available to invest in their car. This helps to ensure close and exciting races – as Paul can testify!
The 18 race series saw Paul take no less than six wins and 15 podiums.
Despite having to cope with some technical problems with his car during the latter stages of the Championship, Paul’s performance over the series makes impressive reading:
7 second-place finishes
2 third-place finishes
… and Paul also recorded the fastest lap time in eight of his races.
After the Championship, Paul thanked Landal Gwel an Mor for their sponsorship and his pit team for their support through the season. Paul will be presented with his big trophy at a special awards night on 19th January and is already making his plans for the 2019 season.
Many congratulations to Paul from everyone at Landal Gwel an Mor!
