The Golf GTIs are all set for the season finale this weekend, when the final two rounds of the 2016 Teekay Couplings Production GTI MK2 Championship and MK5 Series take place at the picturesque Donington Park.
The MK2 Championship sees three drivers still in contention for the 16v Class. After dropped scores, Chris Webb travels to Donington with an advantage of 30 points over Adam Hance, with Nick Porter in third place by just 11 points. However with a total of 44 points up for grabs over the double header, including bonus points for fastest laps, it is still all to play for.
Within the 8v class after dropped scores, Matt Petts goes into the weekend leading the charge with Wes Chatterton just 17 points behind. With a total of 24 points available over both races, the 8v class champion is far from decided.
The MK5 series is only in its second year of existence, but it has seen new drivers and new winners throughout the season. With it being a series, all rounds are non-scoring so there isn't a championship table or an official champion, but if there were, it would have been a hard fought affair which would have gone down to the wire, as we have seen five different winners across eight races! With so many winners on the grid it is going to be a tight couple of races which is virtually impossible to call.
As always the race meeting is run by the British Racing and Sports Car Club (BRSCC) and there is a packed programme of races on both days at Donington Park. Both the MK2 and MK5 Golf's are racing on the Sunday, with tickets available on the gate, promising an exciting day. More details can be found on the Donington Park website.
