Gosberton Risegate team 4G Racing are celebrating after John Gil was crowned British champion.

He won the MG Trophy title following two victories in the 160 class during the final meeting of the season at Snetterton.

For me that was undoubtedly the best race of the season with close, fair challenges throughout.

The qualifying session saw 4G set the pace with Ross Makar securing pole position in the 190 class.

Gil was first in his class and Daniel Molloy managed fourth in the 170 class.

In race one Molloy and Gil made good starts before an incident at the first corner saw the race halted.

Makar dropped to third on the restart but went on to record another race win and Molloy took the lead again to hold on for victory in his class.

Molloy said: “For me that was undoubtedly the best race of the season with close, fair challenges throughout.”

Gil kept his challenge on track with another lights to flag victory, meaning he simply needed to finish the last race of the year.

Makar was able to maintain his slender advantage over Jake Fraser-Burns to take his second victory of the day.

Molloy was taken off the circuit and out of the race by a driver who was disqualified.

Gil brought his car home for another win to be crowned champion.

The final round saw 4G Racing take five out of six race wins with three fastest laps, a lap record and the overall championship.

Now the team are looking forward to getting back out on the track for 2016.
