Mark Green wins Rd10 of UK 1/8th Nats

Mark Green wins Rd10 of UK 1/8th Nats

The 10th and penultimate round of the British 1/8th scale Nationals were held at the weekend at the fast Halifax track in the North of England. Qualifying saw Serpent driver, and round 9 winner, Mark Green claim a close TQ ahead of team mate Tim Wood only 1 second behind, with another Serpent racer Richard Hicklin in 3rd. The start of the final saw Green lead away with Wood following very close behind until a broken piston ended his chances and allowed Hicklin up into 2nd position where he stayed for the rest of the race. Jason Frost moved into a podium position which he held for 20 minutes until a blown plug dropped down the order. Several big collisions mid pack involving Andy North and James Connolly meant that Mugen racer Andy Hastings came home third to collect his best result for over a year behind Hicklin in 2nd and Mark Green in 1st. This result meant that Mark Green claimed the 2007 National title ahead of Andy North in 2nd with 3rd position still up for grabs in the 11th and final round in Brooklands.

Thanks to Andy North for the report and photo.
