Darren Bloomfield wins at BRCA Truggy nats Rd1

Darren Bloomfield wins at BRCA Truggy nats Rd1

The 1st round of the BRCA National Truggy Championships was held at Herts over the weekend. With the UK once again experiencing clear, sunny weather the competitors for the opening round of the Truggy and E-Buggy Nationals were in for a treat with the track having been rolled and prepared since the previous weekend. In Truggy qualifying Darren Bloomfield spent the time adjusting his car after the previous event in the US where servo issues had prevented a good result, but here he was thankfully able to concentrate on improving the set up and improving his lap times. He would eventually end up qualifying in 2nd place on the grid behind Mugen’s Jack Embling and in a good place to challenge for the main final. Darren’s Agama teammates Ollie Currie and Jon Hazlewood started directly behind Bloomfield in 3rd and 4th respectively on the grid.

The Truggy final would see Darren and Jon and Michael Lewis fighting between themselves for the win, and on this occasion Darren would come out on top with a very controlled drive. Jon had a nice race with Michael which he managed to win, to make an Agama 1-2. Ollie Currie came within a whisker of completing a podium lockout for the Nemo Racing team, finally having to settle for 4th overall after a great battle. The next round of the series takes place at Coventry in the middle of April.
