The fast flowing Halifax track played host to Round 4 of the 2015 BRCA Electric Touring Car series, and saw the first National win for Schumacher driver Elliott Harper and his Mi5evo. In Qualifying Harper took TQ ahead of Kyle Branson with Chris Grainger third, defending champion Olly Jefferies lined up fourth, with Stafford round winner Schumacher’s Colin Price fifth. Over the three leg finals Harper took leg one with Andy Moore taking leg two from sixth on the grid, Grainger took the final leg but with a first place in leg one and second in leg two it was Harper who took the spoils ahead of Grainger and Branson. After 3 third places in each leg of the finals Colin Price was unlucky only to pick up 5th overall.

With one round to go the BRCA series is wide open with four drivers capable of taking the title when the series moves to the final round at West London next month. The West London showdown will see a winner take all scenario between Harper, Grainger, Jefferies and Price. There will be no last round showdown in 13.5 stock as defending champion Zak Finlay took the win at Halifax and in doing so successfully defended his UK national stock title. Finlay had to fight off a strong mid-season challenge from Schumacher driver James Hart who finished second at Halifax, completing the podium was Jimmy Maddison.
