Last weekend saw the 7th round of the BRCA 1/8th scale National Championships run at the Crystal Palace track in London. Qualifying saw Mugen racer Neil Diver set the TQ by 6 seconds ahead of team mate Andy North in 2nd with Kyosho racer Dave Dixon in 3rd. At the start of the final it was pole man Diver who took the lead followed by Dave Dixon who passed Andy North in chase of the leader, but who then made a slight mistake through the chicane which cost him time. Andy North was then coming under pressure from the fast charging Pete Hastings and Jason Frost and allowed them to pass due to poor handling on big tires. After 10 minutes and with mistakes by Hastings and Frost, as well as the retirement of Dixon, gave Andy North a comfortable 2nd place behind Diver who took the win by 3 laps while local racer Rob Coleman rounded out the podium with 3rd.
