The fast open layout of the Halifax track hosted round three of this season’s BRCA Touring Car national series and after three rounds the Modified class has now seen three different winners. This weekend it was XRAY’s Olly Jefferies who took the spoils taking TQ and the overall victory in tricky constantly changing weather conditions. Right up to the last final drivers had to be on their toes, two minutes in to the last Modified A-final the rain came and with all drivers on slicks it was one of the slowest finals held at Halifax for a long time, but Jefferies kept it on the tarmac to take the win over the Team Associated of Chris Grainger and Schumacher’s Elliott Harper, with each of these drivers taking a round win so far the series now really opens up with two rounds still to go.
In 13.5 Stock the weather really effected day one with all the top drivers in the stock class falling foul of rain half way through the round, so everyone arrived on Sunday morning having to make all three qualifying rounds count. Reigning champion Zak Finlay (XRAY) seized the moment and took TQ and then went on to win all three legs of the A-final, a result which gave him the meeting victory and the championship title with two rounds still to go. Behind Finlay, James Hart once again provided the only real challenge but the Schumacher driver had to settle for second place ahead of Schumacher team mate Lee Price.
Round four is another fast layout as Mendip in the south west of the UK hosts the coming race.
