Chris Grainger wins Rd1 BRCA Nationals

Chris Grainger wins Rd1 BRCA Nationals

Round one of the BRCA Touring car Nationals took place at Aldershot and it was Yokomo racer, and defending Champion, Chris Grainger who was the early pace setter in the modified class. Chris held the top spot in qualifying overnight but was pipped to FTD by Olly Jefferies in the last round of wet qualifying. For leg 1 of the A-main Chris made a decision to go out on slicks on the drying track, while the rest of field remained on intermediates and it was this decision that proved to be best one as he could get passed Olly and take the leg win. Leg 2 and it rained just as the cars left the grid, and with grip at a premium Chris eased past Olly in the damp conditions but as it dried out Olly gave chase but Chris had done enough during the damp part of the race to build up a sufficient lead to take the win. Leg 3 went in favour of Olly but Chris had done enough in the first 2 legs to take the overall victory with Olly 2nd and Ben Cosgrove 3rd.
