2019 5 Club champion Ben Hancy, is among 32 drivers who have already entered the championship for the 2020 season. BS Motorport driver Hancy, will lead the charge for the Somerset based team, as he looks to retain his crown.

After coming so close to championship glory in 2019. Ian Tomlinson will be looking to go that one step further in 2020. Jordan Johnson had an impressive first full year in motorsport and he is back in one of the Chief Racing cars, alongside his Dad, Adrian, who also returns for 2020.

Amigo Motorsport's Dan Blake, was a regular top ten finisher in the second half of 2019, in his first season of MX-5 racing and he is back for a second season. Topcats Racing's Lloyd Huggins was somebody who Dan fought with in the early stages of the season, before being deployed in the Armed Forces and will be looking to carry on where he left off. Bobby Andrews is a driver who has a lot of experience in the championship and will be fighting within the top ten. Abbitt Motorsport are another team from 2019 who return to the championship.
