Jon Hazlewood wins UK RallyX Rd7

Jon Hazlewood wins UK RallyX Rd7

The 7th and final round of the 2007 BRCA 1/8th Off Road series was held last weekend at the fantastic Slough track. With the series already decided in favour of Neil Cragg who was away at the 1/10 worlds in Japan the interest surrounded the fight for 2nd in the championship and and the final qualifying places for next years Worlds, which officially go down to 3rd. With 4 drivers in the hunt for 2nd the competition was fierce. It was Jon Hazelwood who came out blocks fastest with TQ in round 1. Jon then proceeded to take rounds 2 and 3 to stamp his authority over the qualifying sessions. After the 3 rounds the Hobao pair of Graham Alsop and David Crompton took 2nd and 3rd respectively. The final saw a very close battle in the early stages between Jon, David and Tommy Chung, all swapping the lead until about the 5 minute mark when Jon started to make a break which he built to about 10 seconds, a gap that he maintained for the rest of the race back to David with Elliot Boots and Graham Alsop in a battle for 3rd. This was how it stayed with Jon taking the win from Dave and Elliot.
