BRCA electric touring car nationals Rd4 – Report
Round four of the 2013 BRCA Touring Car Championship took place last weekend at the Aldershot circuit located just outside of Farnborough which hosts the famous air show. Saturday saw mixed weather conditions which proved challenging for all drivers in terms of tyre choice and car setup. In the Super Touring class it was Olly Jefferies with his Associated who was able to make the best of the difficult conditions securing TQ. Chris Grainger for Schumacher was able to put his Mi5 second, with Andy Moore who returned especially from Thailand to race placing his HB TCXX third. Team Durango’s Elliot Harper would line up fourth and would have to work his way up to the front to secure the championship this weekend. In the Pro Stock class it was Team Xray driver and 2013 BRCA Champion Zak Finlay who secured TQ from Chris Gunter and Tim Langdell.
In the finals it was Olly who took the win in leg one followed closely by Chris Grainger. Elliot Harper was able to get past Andy into third, but was unable to challenge Olly and Chris with the time remaining. In leg two Elliot was able to take the win from Chris Grainger and Andy in third, Olly Retiring after six laps. In leg three Olly and Chris broke away from the pack with Elliot trying to find a way past Andy in third. Elliot was eventually able to find his way past Andy. At the front Chris Grainger moved into first place ahead of Olly and took the win. As a result this meant the decision for the championship title would be going to the final round at Mendip in September. Olly took the overall win with Chris Grainger second and Elliot Harper third.
In the Pro Stock class Zak Finlay was able to take all three leg wins to secure the overall victory, followed by the popular Tim Langdell who drove his TRF 417 to second. Completing the podium was Schumacher’s Mark ‘Muzzy’ Musgrove in third with his Mi5.
