Bloomfield wins Rd4 CML Winter Champs

Bloomfield wins Rd4 CML Winter Champs

The fourth round of the CML winter series was held last weekend at Frankley and was once again a very wet affair. The UK weather really has not been to kind to the racers or organisers over the past few months. With the qualification to be decided on a TQ basis everyone had to be on top form in all rounds just in case the track went significantly faster. In round 1 of qualification David Crompton and his RB powered Crono took the top spot just in front of Losi driver Simon Willetts and Special agent Barton in 3rd. In round 2 the track didn’t really get any quicker with drivers knocking just a few seconds off their best times and Karl Jackson for Kyosho and Sirio now on top on the pile. Round 3 saw all the top drivers attack at full speed with nothing held back in reserve. Darren Bloomfield with his Losi 8ight powered Novarossi sorted out his minor problems from the start of the day to set TQ by just over five seconds in front of Lee Martin.
