Bloomfield wins Novarossi GP

Novarossi GP Buggy Podium

Darren Bloomfield headed an all Losi 8ight podium at a very wet Novarossi Grand Prix yesterday in the UK when the Top Qualifier led home fellow countryman Richard Taylor and Swedish Touring Car ace Vicktor Wilck in a shortened Main Final.  Saturday qualifying saw the 100 plus competitors contend with cold and wind conditions but the weather was to deteriorate overnight and Sunday saw the heavens open forcing the race organisers to reduce the length of the finals as the astro turf track required regular clearing of the standing water using buckets.  Unfortunately for the Truggy competitors, who were running simultaneously on the dirt track at Novarossi Raceway, the race organisers decided to cancel the finals in the grounds of marshaling safety and so the results were declared on qualifying giving Losi a clean sweep of the event with Ed Kerry declared the winner to also give Novarossi engines the double at their own event.
