Bloomfield wins Panther Winter series Rd1

 Bloomfield wins Panther Winter series Rd1

We received a report from the first round of this years Panther tyres and products supported Herts Nitro Winter series. With no practice in the morning and only 3 rounds of qualification with 2 counting, making no mistakes was very important. Darren Bloomfield took top honours with the quickest run of the day in round three with fellow Losi driver Mathew Perry in second and Karl Jackson for Kyosho in third. With the day light fading towards the end of the finals the racing looked incredibly fast. A bad start to the final from Darren put him to the back of the pack and this left Karl and David Crompton to battle for the win. At about the five minute mark Darren found himself back on equal terms with the top two fighting for the lead. Wheel to wheel racing with Karl down the main straight gave Darren the lead and he never looked back. Bruce Thompson took the chance in the ten minute final not to stop and this gave him the extra time he needed to take second spot in the final for Losi and Novarossi. The majority of drivers chose to use Komodo Dragon 2 tyres in soft compound but Darren preferred the additional steering gained from the Hedgehog.
