Bloomfield takes Truggy Nats double

Bloomfield takes Truggy Nats double header

The opening 2 rounds of the UK Truggy Pro Nationals was run last weekend at the Herts Nitro Model Club under sunny and warm conditions. In Saturday’s round 1, Team Losi driver Darren Bloomfield grabbed the TQ spot ahead of team mates Simon Willets and Jon Hazlewood. In the finals it was a race between the three Losi drivers, with Bloomfield having to make an extra stop in the finals. Coming out of the last pitstop, Darren grabbed the lead from Jon and was able to take the win, with Jon in 2nd and Simon in 3rd. Sunday’s 2nd National round was TQ’d once more by Bloomfield, with Mike Cradock in 2nd and Tommy Chung in 3rd. In the final Darren was leading until lap 12 when he ran out of fuel and this left Tommy to take over the lead but was being pressured heavily by Hazlewood. A fast recvovering Bloomfield moved his way back to the front where he regained the lead and went on to win from Tommy Chung in 2nd, while a mistake near the end saw Jon drop to 3rd.
