Last weekend the second round of the BRCA 1/8 Circuit championship took place at the Adur circuit on the South Coast. Perhaps the most technical circuit on the calendar, it offers its own unique challenge. Saturday saw a dry day for practice with glorious weather and grip increasing nicely through the day.
Sunday saw a round of practice followed by four rounds of Qualifying then finals. Qualifying saw numerous close races, between Tim Wood (Shepherd), Alex Thurston (Serpent), David Spashett (ARC) and Neil King (Capricorn). After round four it was Wood that took TQ with a new track record, followed by Thurston and Spashett.
The A Final blasted away, with all ten cars getting away off the line. With the grid being very close on pace, a number of incidents occurred in the first few laps. Tim Wood led the field from lap 1, with close battles all down the field. King emerged in second after a handful of laps which he never lost, and after a close race John Carr (Shepherd) claimed the final podium position from Jason Frost at the end of the 30 minutes.
