Stiles & Spashett win at West Kent GP

Stiles & Spashett win at West Kent GP

The 1/12 scale electric class is currently in its ‘off-season’ in the UK, with the BRCA nationals taking place during the winter from October to March. However, a number of clubs and series organisers continue to host events during the summer in order to keep competitors occupied and give them a chance to conduct valuable testing and get some practice in. The West Kent Radio Car Club in Tonbridge, South East England have previously held BRCA national events at their superb indoor venue. However, a complication with the booking arrangements at their venue meant that they were unable to be a part of last winters national calendar. As a result, they decided to put on a one-off GP meeting instead. The classes and racing format for the event were the same as for the BRCA nationals. A 2-day meeting with each day effectively counting as a separate event. This allowed drivers who could only make one of the days to attend.
