MG Tro­phy bench­mark Chris Bray to re­turn

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Mul­ti­ple MG Tro­phy cham­pion Chris Bray will re­turn to the se­ries this year af­ter a sab­bat­i­cal of one sea­son.

Bray spent 2015 on the side­lines op­er­at­ing his own Fin­ish­line UK team, but will re­turn to the driv­ing seat for this sea­son to aim for his fourth over­all ti­tle, fol­low­ing on from his suc­cesses in 2009, 2012 and 2014. He will race in the top ZR 190 class of the se­ries.

“Our spon­sors have been quite keen for me to re­turn,” said Bray. “There are quite a few vari­ables with the specifications of the [Dun­lop] tyres chang­ing last year. Al­though we do have data, we won’t have much test­ing planned be­fore round one at Don­ing­ton [on April 3].”

Bray is hope­ful that he will be able to fight for a fourth cham­pi­onship and has tar­geted the sec­ond meet­ing of the year at Brands Hatch on April 30/ May 1 as the place he can be­gin his charge for race wins.

“If we can stay near the top at Don­ing­ton Park [de­spite a lack of test­ing] then hope­fully we can be at the front at Brands,” he added.

“We have had a lot of suc­cess there in pre­vi­ous sea­sons with race wins and so hope­fully we will be quick this year.”

Bray is triple MG champ
