The fifth round of the BRCA 1/8th Track National was held at the Mendip track last weekend. After the finals had to be restarted due to an accident involving personal injury, Tim Wood (Shepherd) carefully started into the main final. Since no tyre change was planned on his Shepherd car, but his opponent Alex Thurston (Serpent) went for a tyre change, the outcome of the race should be decided in the late stage of the race. But due to a gearbox damage Thurston lost valuable so Wood was able to drive home a safe victory. The second place went to Thurston, the final podium spot went to Clive Connolly. Neal King just missed the podium crossing the finishing line in 4th position.
