BRCA Formula National Series Rd2 – Report

Round 2 of the BRCA Formula National Series brought the drivers to the fantastic Rug Racers venue in Hertfordshire. A great track layout awaited drivers with a long straight, sweeper and a few tricky chicanes to tackle on the infield. Qualifying ramped up in pace as the track cleaned up and fastest lap times were very close across five to six drivers but who could keep it on the road and out of the barriers for five minutes? It was Luke Lee (Xray) setting the fastest time in all three rounds and claiming pole position with James Greener (Team Associated) in 2nd and Michael Lee (Xray) driving well to 3rd on the grid despite lack of running on carpet.

Qualifying top 10 results:
1. Luke Lee – Xray
2. James Greener – Team Associated
3. Michael Lee – Xray
4. James Wright – Capricorn
5. Mark Trinder – Xray
6. Jak Samon – Xray
7. Stephen Lander – Capricon
8. Damian Giddins – Xray
9. Martin Southall – Xray
10.Javier Jimenez-Pradillo – Exotek

In the finals Luke drove well from pole in leg 1 and 2 to claim the overall victory. 2nd was Michael with two solid results and a well driven leg 2 trading lap times with James Greener and finishing just ahead. The final podium spot went to James Wright (Capricorn) who found some good pace in the last round of qualifying and took that it into the finals to improve on his grid position. In final leg 2, seven driver’s fastest laps were within two tenths, this made for some great racing throughout the field.
