Darren Bloomfield takes UK 8th buggy national Rd3

Darren Bloomfield takes UK 8th buggy national Rd3

The 3rd round of the BRCA National series took place at the Kent track just outside Maidstone over the weekend. The weather was very hot and humid on Saturday which made it pretty hard work for all the drivers as they got used to the excellent but very technical track layout that had been set down. In response to the track breaking it up at some races recently, the club had added oil to the dirt mix in many areas, and this held the dirt together well providing a contrast in surfaces between the smooth pile desertions and the loose dusty ones.
