BRCA 1/8 Circuit National Rd 6 – Report

BRCA 1/8 Circuit National Rd 6 – Report

The fourth round of the BRCA National series took place last weekend at the Wombwell Model Car Club, a circuit which the national championship visits twice this year, a challenging track with a very technical infield and long straight away. Saturday practice was topped by Tim Wood setting the pace, with Mark Green absent on the Saturday, it looked as if Tim would have the advantage. Heading into Sunday it appeared luck would not be on Wood’s side as Mark Green shot straight to the top of the qualifying without any practice run on either Saturday or Sunday.

Qualifying results:
1. Mark Green – 18/ 308.623
2. Tim Wood – 18/ 313.574
3. Andy Hastings – 18/ 313.993
4. Neal King – 18/ 315.099
5. Andrew North – 18/ 315.731
6. David Spashett – 17/ 300.713
7. John Carr – 17/ 303.439
8. Michael Walton – 17/ 303.554
9. Karl Dransfield – 17/ 306.619
10.Richard Hicklin – 17/ 306.951

As the cars headed to the grid Andy Hastings would be penalised and start from the pit lane, and John Carr making an amazing start from 7th to 3rd, Neal King was soon to take the podium spot from John Carr and would retain it until the end of the race, up front Tim Wood was to pass Mark Green on lap 18, and stay in front for another 60+ laps, unfortunately for Tim Wood he was to retire on lap 80 and Mark Green was to take the lead and secure his third win of the season, with Andrew North making the charge to second after Tim’s misfortune, with Neal King rounding off the podium followed by Andy Hastings who made the charge from the back of the grid to finish 0.7 seconds away from the podium.
