Marc Stiles wins BRCA 1/12th Nationals Rd2


Serpent driver Mark Stiles took the win in the stock class at Round 2 of the BRCA 1/12 scale Nationals last weekend. Mark qualified in 3rd place with behind Olly Jefferies and 3-time world champion David Spashett with Chris Kerswell taking the fourth place in the A final starting grid. In the final, Olly got away cleanly ahead of Dave, with Chris passing Mark for 3rd in the opening laps. A mistake from Dave moved Marc and Dave up to 2nd and 3rd and they then began to close down Olly at the front. At half race time the trio were together on the track and separated by less than 2 seconds. A small error from Chris allowed Mark to re-pass him for 2nd, and then Olly hit a track marker which promoted Mark into the lead. Chris and Olly then enjoyed a close battle for 2nd which allowed Mark to pull a gap of about 3 seconds and cruise to a comfortable victory. Team Associated driver Olly beat Chris to deny Serpent a 1-2. The result leaves Mark leading the stock championship. Round 3 of the championship takes place in 3 weeks time.
