Gosberton Risegate team 4G Racing had their busiest and most successful year to date, winning both the prestigious MG Trophy and the Cockshoot Cup championships.

The racing season got off to a good start at Donington in April with two wins for William Payne and two second places for Gianni Picone, both in the entry level Class C cars.

A pattern was set for the rest of the season with 4G picking up class wins at all but one race meeting on the calendar, including Brands Hatch, Silverstone, Knockhill, Mallory Park, and the season finale at Snetterton in the first weekend in October.

The overall title in the MG Trophy Championship was won by Payne who also took the Class C win in his first year of racing.

Further success was achieved by novice driver Picone who achieved second place in Class C.

Third in Class C was John Gil who took the overall honours in 2015.

Novice driver Patrick Booth also had a solid first year, securing seventh in class B.

This was the first year that 4G Racing branched out from the MG Trophy and entered a car in the Cockshoot Cup.

Ross Makar secured the class title with a round to spare but needed one more win to take the outright title and did so in the final race of at Oulton Park.

4G Racing, led by team manager Alex Montgomery, have completed seven years of successful racing and continue to grow in strength and expertise.
