NRS 09 Round 5 Report

“Last weekend saw the final round of the Northern Regional series, held at the newly laid Astro track at Central Scotland Off Roaders (CSOR), all of the drivers who made the trip up were expecting a very big track with high expectations after seeing a few pictures on the net, the track turned out to be very fast with 40 second laps being put in during practice on the Saturday, and the layout was very pleasing to drive if you made no mistakes, the organisers of the NRS would like to congratulate all at CSOR for all the hard work they have put in over the summer months getting the track ready for this series, top job well done. Sundays qualifying saw the weather just about hold off in sunny/windy Scotland for a change to keep the track dry for some very fast times put in throughout the day, in the Buggys Bruce Thompson (Hot Bodies D8) & Pete Watt (Mugen) battled it out during qualifying for the TQ with Bruce taking the top spot on the grid for the A final, the Truggys saw Jimmy Price (Losi) and Damian Clark both from the NRX club fighting for the TQ, with Damian taking the top spot for the final.

The junior championship was the closest of all 3 classes with young up and coming Jonathan Skidmore (Hong Nor) needing a TQ and win to steal the championship from Ryan Mould & Oliver Evans (Losi). Jonathan managed to TQ with Oliver Evans in the B final to come close with a chance of winning the Junior championship, Jonathan managed to stay in front for the whole race to give him his TQ and win in the juniors and the Top spot in the Juniors, Oliver Evans and Ryan Mould tied on points for second but after a count back Oliver had taken second place with Ryan in third. The buggy A final saw Bruce Thompson & Pete Watt go head to head for the full 20 min final, swapping places a number of times with Pete making a small mistake on the last lap costing him 10 seconds to finish in second place, with Damian Clark (Losi) having a very impressive drive from 10th on the grid to finish in Third, Colin Brennan had a very safe drive to bring his Hong Nor home in forth to give him the top place in the Clubman’s & overall top position in the series, with Ryan Donovan (xray) not attending the meeting to take 2nd place in the Clubman’s and Damian Clark with 3rd place in the Clubman series. The highest placed Pro/Sponsored driver went to Stuart Mahon with his Reedy powered Hong Nor placing him 2nd overall.

The Truggy A final was again a close final that was won by Damian Clark with his HB D8T followed by Jimmy Price and his Novarossi powered Losi 8t 2.0 who needed to only finish in the top 5 to take the overall Truggy place, Phil Welch placed 2nd in the Truggy championship with his O.S powered Mugen and Damian Clark taking the third spot. Next step onto the Inter Club Champions of Champions race this weekend at the fantastic Ware Herts. track, where the top 20 Buggys and top 6 Truggys from each regional series (NRS, 8th 09, SRS, SWORDS) will battle out to be the Champion of Champions. The organisers of the Northern Regional Series would like to thank all Drivers and Clubs involved in the series and would like to especially thank Wayne Eley for all the help with running the timing and race control at the meetings. Also a big thanks to Horizon Hobbies for sponsoring the series, lets hope next year can be bigger and better.

See you next year.
