Tim Wood wins UK 1/8th Nats Rd7

Tim Wood wins UK 1/8th Nats Rd7

Last weekend saw round 7 of the BRCA 1/8th scale championships held at the Halifax track and it proved to be very evenly matched racing with no one driver having a clear speed advantage. Qualifying, which saw the first 2 rounds run on a damp track, saw Mugen racer Andy North claim TQ  ahead of Serpent trio Tim Wood, Richard Hicklin and Mark Green. The final was again a very close race with no more than 1/2 a lap separating the top 4 places. From the start, Andy North was slow away and struggled with cold tires in the early stages but was soon on the pace, while Chris Heath was again on a charge from 5th on the grid. After a slow start, Chris started to make back time and with him being able to cut out a fuel stop would be in contention at the finish but unfortunately for him he had a gearbox fail with 4 minutes to go while leading the race. This gave the win to Tim Wood just ahead of Mark Green in 2nd with Andy North taking 3rd.

Thanks to Andy North for the report and pictures.
