Stu Wood wins at Northwest regionals Rd4

The 4th round of the UK Northwest regional series was held at the Pendle 8th track. The club have recently turned their dirt track into an all-astro track and the sand-covered artificial surface made many drivers struggle but not Stu Wood who took all four qualifying rounds to take the overall TQ. From the start of the A-main, he instantly opened a 10 seconds gap to the 2nd placed driver but he soon after started to experience some electrical glitches and his lead started to close. Stu managed to hold off the 2nd place right to the very last corner and he won the final from Mark Smith and Luke Holdsworth.
