Hicklin wins Rd3 of UK 1/8th Nats

Hicklin wins Rd3 of UK 1/8th Nats

We were a bit slow off the mark with the result of the 3rd round of the BRCA 1/8th scale Nationals which took place last weekend at the ultra fast Tibshelf track. The event was hampered by wet weather which started just before qualifying and continued for the rest of the event. In the qualifying it was Serpent racer and round 1 and 2 winner Mark Green that took the top qualifying spot by just less than a lap ahead of team mate Richard Hicklin with Pete Hastings in 3rd, 1 second further back. In the main final the rain continued to fall and only 8 drivers took to the start with pole sitter Mark Green the first retirement after 1 lap. Andrew North led from the start but had some rain related problems after 10 minutes, as did most of the racers, and in the end it was Richard Hicklin that won the race by 2 laps from Pete Hastings with Tim Wood a distant 3rd, 14 laps further back.
