Deerdale played host to Round 1 of the BRCA 1/8 E-buggy National Championship with a great turnout of drivers, however the weather did it’s best to ruin the event with strong winds and constant rain. The club did a great job of running through qualifying under the adverse weather conditions which would see Tony Truman’s Agama take pole, followed by the Herts RC Models Mugen of Simon Reeves with Lewis Beach’s Sworks rounding out the top 3.
The A final would be run in much dryer, but windy, conditions and saw Simon Reeves Tekin powered Mugen leap to the front as Tony had an unfortunate issue. Simon would lead the race for the majority with Matt Lewis taking the lead at the half way stage, but an unfortunate error with his TLR buggy would see him drop back to second. Simon went on to take the win being the only driver to make it through to 20 laps with Matt Lewis second and Tony Truman recovering from a very bad start to third.
