Schumacher BTCC Rd 4 – Report

Schumacher BTCC Rd 4 – Report

The super fast circuit of Halifax was the venue for the BTCC this past weekend, virtually all racers turned up on Saturday for lots of practice time, the weather was dry and the forecast was good all day Saturday. However the forecast for Sunday was totally the opposite, everybody knew that very heavy rain was predicted in the early afternoon, so due to this the decision was taken to start the event slightly earlier on the Sunday morning, to try and get the event complete in the dry conditions. The format for the day was 4 rounds of qualifying with round by round and then 1 final for everyone. As forecast the rain held off until the last few heats of the final qualifying round, then a little started to fall here and there to make things a little more interesting. For the finals everyone was preparing their wet cars on wet tyres as it was a little moist. Colin Price took his form from the great win at the last BRCA National and stamped his authority in the Modified A-main, taking the win from Olly Jefferies and Chris Grainger.

Modified A-final result:
1. Colin Price
2. Olly Jefferies
