Colin Price leads Schumacher sweep of BTCC Rd.5 at Bedworth




Race report by: Schumacher
It was a return to the fantastic Midlands track of Bedworth this past weekend, almost 70 drivers were in attendance, there were other events on this weekend so a few usual BTCC suspects weren’t present, however it was still a great event which all enjoyed. Race Director Bob Burr and Schumacher’s Mark Musgrove gave the drivers the usual drivers briefing and explained the procedures for the day. The format for the day was 4 rounds of qualifying with round by round and then 1 final for everyone. Sun and dry weather was forecast all day, so there was no threat of rain whatsoever.

Bedworth’s track was looking in superb condition and it was very quick. New track records were set in both 13.5 and 17.5 classes respectively, the drivers were having a lot of fun and their cars were working well.After some superb close racing throughout the day, it was on to the finals for even more close racing!
