2019 AWS Rd4 – Report
The fourth round of the 2019 AWS was held at Deerdale with 64 attending the meeting. There was a mix of Nitro 8th Buggy, 8th Electric Buggy, mixed with Nitro, and 8th Nitro Truggy. Racing started at exactly 9am with a round of timed practice. Followed by the qualifiers that were held on a drying track that caused some traction rolling problems for the drivers. After the three rounds of qualifying Jon Howells took TQ in Truggy from Wez Jolly and Mark Morris while the Buggy class was lead by Graham Alsop taking the TQ in front of Mike Lewis and John Holmes. In fading light the Buggy A-main was the last final of the day. The 15-minutes race started just after 4pm and some driver scrambled to change tyres because of the slippy conditions. However in the end it was Graham Alsop (HB Racing) taking the win from Mick Butler (HB Racing) on the 2 spot. 3rd place was taken by another driver for HB Racing, John Holmes and 4th place was taken by Mike Lewis.
The first final on the line however was the Truggy A-final. Great battles could be seen through the race, however it was Team Associated driver Jon Howells taking the win with Wez Jolly, a driver for Tekno, taking 2nd place. Mark Morris (TLR) finished in 3rd place and finally Peter Jones finished in forth place.
