BRCA Truggy & E-Buggy Nationals Rd4 – Report

Round four of the BRCA Truggy & E-Buggy Nationals was held in South Wales at the Pembrey Racing Circuit. The day’s racing was interesting to say the least. There was heavy rain during the night so the track was wet to start with. The numbers for this meeting as a little disappointing with only 36 drivers turning up. During the booking-in process the sun had come out, but as luck would have it during the drivers briefing it started to rain. The first few rounds of qualifying was wet but the track did dry out very quickly. Once the track had dried out the lap times were getting lower, and true to South Wales Fashion the rain came down again for the last round in qualifying.

After the three rounds of qualifying we saw Darren Bloomfield TQ Electric Buggy, Team Associated driver Jamie Clancy was 2nd overall and Simon Reeves was 3rd overall. Michael Lewis took TQ with his TLR Truggy, another TLR driver, Simon Willetts qualified 2nd overall and Darren Hayden-Ball was 3rd overall. With the weather turning during the lunch break there were a fair amount of drivers dropping out of their final. So the race had only had three finals. Second after the Truggy B-final was the E-Buggy A-final. It was a 14-car race that lasted twelve minutes. After a great race to watch Agama’s Darren Bloomfield took the win from his TQ spot on the grid. Another Agama driver, Jonathan Skidmore took 2nd place. Team Associated driver Jamie Clancy came in 3rd place. Finally TLR Driver Jack Willetts came in 4th place.

The final race of the day was the 30-minute Truggy A-final, a good long race which saw some very close racing with the top 4 drivers moving around during the race. However after 30 minutes of racing Michael Lewis took the win, Simon Willetts took 2nd place, 3rd was Darren Hayden-Ball. Another Assocatied driver, Jon Howells took 4th place.
