Andy Hastings wins BRCA 1/8th On-road finale

Andy Hastings wins BRCA 1/8th On-road finale

The final round of the BRCA National On-Road Nitro Championship took place at the Mendip circuit in Weston Super Mare. During practice on Saturday it was warm and dry all day with the grip coming up steadily throughout the day. Sunday race day the weather remained the same after three rounds of qualifying, Shepherd driver Andy Hastings was sitting in 4th place. In the final round of qualifying, Andy was on to improve his time and position, however a stripped 2nd gear from a stone prevented any improvement. The start of the A-final Andy saw drop back to 5th behind David Spashett. After 5 minutes of nose to tail racing, an engine cut for David allowed Andy past and wind in on 4th position, eventually getting past and start catching the leaders. Around the 17 minute mark Andy moved into the lead – a quick tyre change on the front left at the 20 minute pit stop saw Andy maintain his lead – and settle into a steady pace to the finish. After 108 he crossed the finishing line in first position followed by Neil Diver (Mugen) in 2nd and John Carr (Serpent) in 3rd position.
