The 4th round of the 1/10th 200mm Nationals were run last weekend at the Snetterton track, and it was a GP event meaning it was run to EFRA rules and so there were bump-ups as well as a 45 minute final. As it rained all day Saturday, nobody got any practice, and so on Sunday everyone got 10 minutes free practice to find a setup. Qualifying ended with Serpent racers Mark Green and round 3 winner Kyle Branson in 1st and 2nd, with Chris Slater in 3rd and Johnathan Dobney in 4th. The final saw a good start for the front 2 drivers and within a short time they had opened a gap back to 3rd spot. Mark led for the first 8 laps until Kyle took over the lead, a position he held until the 30 minute mark when he unfortunately stripped a gear. This allowed Mark to regain the lead and Robin Hammet to move up to 2nd, while Kyle dropped back to 5th following the fitting of a replacement gear. In the end Mark Green won by a lap from Xray driver Robin Hammet, with Branson recovering to 3rd, and setting the fastest lap of the race, to take the final step on the podium.
