BRCA Electric Touring Nationals Rd4 – Report

BRCA Electric Touring Nationals Rd4 – Report

Round four of this season’s BRCA Touring Car Series took place over the weekend at the popular Mendip track near Weston Super Mare. This event looked on paper to be pivotal in the 2016 championship as the first three rounds had seen three different winners, Chris Grainger took round one, Elliott Harper round two and the last round saw victory for Olly Jefferies. In the Modified Super Touring class tyre strategy played a major part in the outcome of the result, Chris Grainger sat out round one of qualifying to put himself on a different strategy to his main championship contenders, this paid off and he would go on to take TQ and pole position for the A-final ahead of Olly Jefferies, Matt White and Elliott Harper.

After taking leg one of the A-final Grainger the result looked to be done and dusted but Jefferies took leg two setting up an exciting leg three finale, with both drivers now on tyres with similar amount of wear it was Grainger that went on to take the leg and the meeting, Jefferies would have to settle for second and after a meeting where he never really looked to challenge the top two Elliott Harper salvaged a podium place in third. The championship is almost in Grainger’s pocket now with one round to go, Jefferies needs to win the final round at west London and take all three legs of the A final to win the tie break, a tough ask given Grainger’s current form with the TC7, Elliott Harper can’t win the series but a strong result at West London could see him challenge for the runners up spot.
