“The all-new Serpent S411 continued to show its outstanding potential at round 4 of the BRCA Electric Touring Car Nationals at Aldershot last weekend. In the modified class, Chris Kerswell ran at the front throughout the 5 qualifying rounds and would line up an impressive 2nd on the grid behind Worlds podium finisher Elliott Harper for the 3-leg A final. Chris set the fastest time in two of the qualifiers and would have started on pole were it not for a minor technical infringement that cost him a decisive 3rd round win. Chris Grainger qualified 3rd ahead of Andy Moore and Olly Jefferies.
Mark Stiles was also on the pace and despite setting 3 top-10 round times in qualifying including a 6th in round, he would disappointingly miss out on an A final place on count back and line up 2nd in the B final. In the A finals some unlucky starts left Chris with a lot of work to do, but he put in a couple of solid runs to claim 5th overall. It was a similar story for Mark in the B final; he finished off the podium but had some excellent door to door races which were enjoyed by the watching crowd around the circuit.
Despite a slightly disappointing result for the team, lots of the other competitors and spectators told of how impressed they were with the S411 was performing on the track. Expect to see more S411’s running at subsequent outdoor and indoor events in the UK during the coming months!”
