The 8th round of the BRCA 1/8th scale National championships took place last weekend in Mendip. Qualification was extremely close with 4 seconds separating the top 6 places. Neil Diver and Andy North set the early pace in round 1, just failing to make 20 laps after Mark Green suffered from radio problems. In round 3 with the track slower due to higher temperatures, Mark Green made 20 laps to take TQ. In the final Mark blasted away and created a small gap. Andy North was in second but ended up down to last after a racing incident, while up front Jason Frost was catching Green waiting for a little mistake which happened and dropped him down the order. Tim Wood was then on a charge but just not quick enough to catch Jason who came home first for his second BRCA victor, stopping the Serpent domination of the Championship so far this season, while Chris Heath continued his consistency with a comfortable 3rd place finish.
