Graham Alsop wins Truggy Pro Rd3
The 3rd round of the UK Truggy Pro series took place last weekend in Ledbury near the England Wales border and with 100 participants present the weather gods were kind to the racers with the event evntually turning out to be warm and dry. Qualifying saw Kyosho Masters winner Elliot Boots take the TQ spot by 3 seconds ahead of round 2 winner and HoBao racer Graham Alsop in 2nd. After a bit of banging and scraping at the start of the main final it was Boots that emerged in 1st only to be passed 4 laps later by Xray driver Hazlewood and then also eventually by Alsop. With Boots clearly in 3rd it was left to Alsop and Hazlewood to battle it out for the win with the lead swapping a number of times and after the last pitstop it looked like Hazlewood had the win secured, but a coming together with a back marker handed Alsop the lead and despite heavy pressure he could also take the win, with Hazlewood in 2nd and Boots in 3rd.
