Murray wins at BRCA GT12 National Champs Rd2

Murray wins at BRCA GT12 National Champs Rd2

Last weekend saw the second round of the 2016 BRCA GT12 National Championship, at the recently opened MB Models Raceway. With 98 drivers booked in, this event was probably the largest and most competitive race GT12 has ever seen. The winner of national round 1, Adam Catchpole (Zen) put in a fantastic run to take the pole position, with Schumacher’’s Andy Murray less than a second behind. James Hart (Schumacher) completed the top 3 on the grid. The A-final saw a spectacular race up front, with Adam and Andy pulling out a gap to the rest of the field as they carried out an intense battle. All eyes were on the battle to see Andy showing much improved form and putting pressure onto the current national champion. This continued until around the half way point when the tiniest mistake from Adam allowed Andy a way through. This battle thrilled the large crowd for the rest of the 6 minutes. Ultimately Andy took the win, his first national victory in GT12, just ahead of Adam. James Hart (3rd) and Aidan Ripley (4th) could break away from the battle for 5th place. 5th to 10th was a super close battle with all 6 drivers finishing within less than 5 seconds.
