Next stop Norfolk

PGTI Rounds 8 & 9 // Snetterton



This Sunday brings the next two rounds of 2019 PGTI Championship to Snetterton in Norfolk.


After a dominating Race 1 victory last time out Pete Milne is looking forward to returning to the circuit where he claimed his first double victory last year.


Pete relished the challenging wet conditions in Wales putting the #44 machine on Pole and leading from lights to flag.

After an adjusted schedule Pete crossed the line 4th in races 2 and 3.


Despite Milne's mastery of the wet, Engineering Director, Wes Chatterton is looking forward to dry racing at Snetterton:

"Although we are used to the wet conditions in the North of England it will be nice to have two dry races. There are some demanding corners at Snett and the MK2s really move around underneath you when you get them right"

Keep up with the action from our Live Timing page.

"Engineering Weekend" at Croft

Posted on 11th May, 2019

PGTI Championship Rounds 3 & 4


The fast and challenging Croft Circuit played host to rounds 3 & 4 of the 2019 Production GTI Championship last weekend.

#44 Qualified 2nd for race 1 with the #24 machine of Eccles 4th on the MK2 Grid.


It was apparent at the end of the session that #44 required a new gearbox. With the help from Matthew Rhodes ( & Kris Bestford (The GTI Shop) we soon had a box but limited time to fit.


With the assistance of Retro Resus Tom Walker #44 managed to drive into the collecting area with seconds to spare on the clock.

After a strong "elbows out" start #44 later retired from the race with a broken clutch plate.

Catching the leaders throughout the race #24 of Matt Eccles was looking strong in 3rd until retiring due to a loss of power.


Eccles experienced Race Engineer Daniel Slinger was able to swap the head gasket in time for #24 to start Race 2 from the pitlane to finish 3rd.



Race Director Luke Wales comments "Croft was an engineering weekend for us, we cannot understate how much we appreciate the assistance of Kris, Tom & Matt.

Competing in the Production GTI Championship is unlike any other championship we have ever participated in. The esprit de corps that exists between fellow competitors and the organisers is unique. Everyone is happy to help out those having mechanical issues to get them out on track."


Future talent Henry Eccles collects the 3rd place trophy


The PGTI Championship continues with Rounds 5, 6 &7 at Anglesey on 8th & 9th June

Race 2 Win for Eccles

Posted on 10th April, 2019

Race 2 Win For Eccles


The talented Glossop based driver, Matt Eccles took the spoils in Race 2 of the opening round of the Production GTI Championship last weekend at Silverstone.


After finishing behind MLP's Pete Milne in Race 1 Eccles started in 3rd place & after an electric start in damp conditions dominated the race from lights to flag.


With Milne's 2nd & 3rd places it is MLP's strongest opening to a season yet with both drivers in imediate championship contention. 


The next round of the season takes us to Croft on the 5th of May.
