CML reports – “The Tiverton Model Car Club played host the round 2 of the BRCA 1/8th Off Road series and their fast Astroturf track provided a very difficult challenge. The high speed nature of the circuit, coupled with the very high traction levels on this surface, made for a un-forgiving combination. Mistakes were punished heavily, either by time loss or breakages. The qualifying sessions were also slightly affected by light showers, with the early and middle heats both having a blow out round where the track was too slick for quick times. At the end of qualifying it was round 1 winner Elliott Boots who took the pole with 3 round wins and some very impressive runs.

The new evolution of the proven RC8 looking fast and improving as the day went on. Simon Willetts took third just in front of Dave Bailey with his RB/Savox Hobao Hyper 9.
