MG and Invited BritishThe final category of the day saw another combined field saw the MG and Invited British cars on display and it was a similar story to the Excel and BMW E30s field. One driver was a cut above the rest was Philip Chester, who comfortably picked up the fastest time in all three sessions he took part in, including the day’s fastest time of 1:18.6280. His closest competitor was a fellow MG driver Vincenzo Gucciardo who finished second in each session. Keith Ondarchie was the only driver of the British cars to post the fastest time in the class on multiple occasions while Michael Roddy was the fastest in the second session.

Phillip Chester has dominated in the MG & Invitational British on Friday and it was no different on Saturday when he continued to top the time sheets and win the sole race of the day. 

The MG BGT driver led from start to finish, lapping all but three of his competitors to cross the line 12 seconds ahead of Vincenzo Gucciardo. Ben Muller finished in third over Keith Ondarchie, who ended the day as the number one Invitational British Car driver.

Phil Chester came incredibly close to securing a clean sweep of the MG & Invited British category but lost out on the final race of the weekend when Vincenzo Gucciardo snatched victory in the final race.

Having trailed Chester all weekend, Gucciardo finally got his man on the penultimate lap of the final race to go home with at least one win.  

Third place finishes in both races went to Keith Ondarchie and Ben Muller with the former picking up the Invited British Class win in the process.
