Tim Wood wins Rd5 of UK 1/8th Nats

Tim Wood wins Rd5 of UK 1/8th Nats

Last weekend, under changing weather conditions, saw the 5th round of the BRCA 1/8th scale Nationals run at the Halifax track in the north of England. In qualifiying, and despite rain plaguing the event, everyone managed to get a dry run in which allowed Tim Wood, racing a Serpent 960, to take the pole position spot ahead of 2nd placed James Connolly racing a Kyosho Evolva. In the final, which some drivers decided not to race because of the weather, it was Tim Wood and Mugen racer Andrew North that had a close battle in the early stages but as the track dried Andrew started to drop back, leaving Tim to take the win, 2 laps ahead of 2nd placed Gareth Bell who managed to pass North in the closing stages demoting him to 3rd.
