Handy Models Grand Prix top 3

Ben Cosgrove has won the Handy Models Grand Prix run by the Cotswold Model Car Club, leading home an Xray NT1 1-2-3. Competing for the first time as a team the 3 UK Xray NT1 team drivers, Ben Cosgrove, Mark Gilliland and Robin Hammet, had to cope with tricky damp conditions on the Sunday of the event but a quick run in the dry Saturday qualifying gave Cosgrove the pole position which couldn’t be bettered on the final 2 damp qualifying runs on Sunday. In the final Ben managed to stay on the lead lap despite a tricky tire choice but as the track dried a bit he was able to get into the lead from where he could take the win, followed home by Robin Hammet and Mark Gilliland in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
