Elliott Boots wins at KMRC championship Rd1

Elliott Boots wins at KMRC championship Rd1

Last weekend saw the first round of the KMRC championship and while the Kent Club was awarded a round of the BRCA National Championships this year the race attracted a lot of drivers in preparation for the National later in July. The qualifying rounds 2 and 3 went to Kyosho’s Elliott Boots who was the only driver to be able to get into the 10 laps. The final was to be over 20 minutes and would be a good race as the track was very tight and small. Elliott made a good start and was able to get away but being the nature of the track it made for very close racing so he was swapping the lead with Lee Martin and Darren Bloomfield, but after the last fuel stop Elliott was able to make the break and get a good lead from Lee Martin and then was able to settle down to come home in first place.
