Lee Martin secures 4WD Win at AREA 51 GP


Lee Martin secures 4WD TQ & Win - AREA 51 GP

“Lee Martin took the victory in the 4WD class on the second day of the AREA 51 race this weekend. Lee took the opening three rounds of qualifying with his Tamiya TRF502X to go TQ and pole on the grid for the 3-leg finals. Darren Bloomfield took the final leg to sit second on the grid with Tom Cockerill third. Lee took the first let but a collision on the opening lap of the second leg saw Lee Martin on his roof and down to 9th place – eventually finishing second to XFactory X7 prototype of Ellis Stafford who took the leg. The final leg was another messy one for Lee as Darren Bloomfield took the lead until a mid-track chaotic exchange saw hard-charging Elliott Boots through for the lead and eventual leg win – from 10th on the grid! The final positions were Lee Martin 1st – Darren Bloomfield 2nd – Elliott Boots 3rd.”
