Stoke Nitro Racers Winter Series Rd 5

213

CML reports – “This round of the SNRC winter series was graced by the attendance of a few of the top national drivers, aiming to do battle with the fast local drivers on this challenging track. The Stoke track is a good blend of fast and technical sections with quite a few jumps to test the drivers ability. As is to be expected in winter the track was damp early doors and the obligatory Hobao Angle spike tyres were heavily in evidence. In round 1 it was RB powered Graham Alsop who took the fastest time, just in front of Associated/Reedy man Craig Drescher. This meeting was being run to FTD qualifying so good times were important especially when the drivers started getting used to the track. In round 2 national champ Neil Cragg and team mate Drescher had fantastic qualifying duel, where both drivers realised they were running very close and both set their fastest laps on the last laps as both pushed for that bit extra. As it was Neil came out on top with a time 1/10 of a second quicker than Craig.” Read More…
