Ross Makar scored another double podium when visiting Donington Park for the latest round of the MG Trophy Championship.

Qualifying went well for the 4G Racing driver, who earned himself fourth place on the grid for races one and two.

Changes were made to the set-up for race one but they didn’t deliver the result wanted.

However, Ross - from Gosberton Risegate - managed to pick up points with a third-place finish.

This prompted a total rethink on set-up before race two.

Changes saw Ross fighting for the lead from the start of the race.

However, a Class D car rolled over in the gravel, leading to a red flag and a full re-start as only three laps had been completed.

The re-start did not go to plan and Ross fell to fourth.

But he quickly reclaimed third place and set about chasing down the leaders, moving into second.

The next five laps saw Ross exert pressure, desperate for his first win in his first full season in the top class of the MG Trophy.

However, he was denied by a low fuel level with three laps to go, as cars are fuelled for the standard race but not the extra three laps.

This meant he had to settle for a fine second place, along with the fastest lap.

He was also named the driver of the race.

Ross currently sits in second place in the standings.
