Joe Kerry takes BRCA 200mm Rd6 in Scotland
Round 6 of the British 200mm Nationals were held this past weekend at the excellent Stonehaven circuit in Scotland. Saturday’s practice was held under dry conditions despite the forecast being for rain and traction was ok to start off with and it wasn’t long before all cars were up to racing pace. Due to the nature of the Stonehaven track, tyre wear is really high so many drivers worked on trying to reduce this for Sunday’s finals. Due to overnight rain qualifying was run under damp and greasy conditions and saw Joe Kerry win all 4 rounds of to take the TQ spot with his Serpent 733. Shortly before the final was due to start the track rapidly dried up so there was a rush in the pits to true some dry tyres for the final. As the final started Joe got an excellent start off the line and had already lapped the entire field within a few minutes. Joe lead every second of the race and in the end won a full 3 laps clear of second placed Alex Thurston who drove very well to finish one second in front of Adam Catchpole who took third. With this result Joe now moves into first place of the British 200mm Championship. Round 7 will take place at the very tight and technical Colchester circuit in 2 weeks time.
Thanks to Joe Kerry for the update.
