8th Scale BRCA National – Rnd 4

398

CML reports – “The 4th round of the BRCA National 1/8th Off Road series took place at the largely unused Junction 12 track, just off the M40. The track first used in the national series last year provides a different challenge to the other dirt tracks, with its high speed chicanes and the way the traction changes throughout the day. In practice the dust was unbelievable and at that stage it looked like the track would break up quite badly, especially as the ground was so dry. The track was swept to aid the cleaning of the line and then we were away for qualifying. In the first round clean runs were hard to come by for the top guys and Darren Bloomfield made a few errors despite some very quick lap times. Neil Cragg was fighting a brake bias issue which kept him in the lower half of the top ten, which left Elliott Boots with a good opportunity in the last heat which he duly took to take the round win with his RB/Savox equipped car, with Simon Willetts in second.”
