Gosberton Risegate team 4G Racing recorded a fantastic haul of wins, points and trophies at Silverstone.

They were again challenging right at the front in every class to keep up the pressure on their championship bid.

4G cars are now in a great position in the MG Trophy Championship, occupying three of the top four places in the championship standings.

The third round of the championship saw the drivers and teams descending onto the home of British motorsport as Silverstone played host to MG Live.

In the first practice session 4G Racing set the early pace across the three classes.

In qualifying Ross Makar in Class B secured fourth place while Daniel Molloy in Class C – who had topped the time sheets in practice – took a chance with dry tyres and struggled to seventh on the grid. In Class D John Gil drove an outstanding session, 
securing pole position with a margin of nearly seven seconds over his nearest rival.

As the lights went out on the first race Makar made an electric start, Molloy passed three of his fellow competitors and three of the faster Class B cars by the end of the first lap and Gil was focused on building the gap between himself and the rest of the Class C field.

In heavy rain the race was bought to a close with Makar securing second place, only 0.08 seconds behind the leader.

Molloy held onto third place and Gil secured a lights to flag victory with another commanding drive.

In race two Makar was fourth – just missing out on a podium place by one-hundredth of a second.

Molloy took the lead with just one lap to spare for his second win of the season.

The team are now busy preparing for their next challenge at Castle Combe Circuit in Wiltshire on August 8.
