Xray Racing Series UK Rd3 – Report

The Newbury club recently held round 3 of the Xray Racing Series UK. European team Xray star Jan Ratheisky and his mechanic Stefan Schulz made the trip over to get in some practice before heading off to the Snowbirds in Florida. The Touring Modified class was great to see. The first final was a bit chaotic but Jan kept out of trouble the best and took the win. The second leg was a little less chaotic as final got split to help everyone get a chance of a clean race. Elliott took a pole to flag win and took the overall win as he had the fastest final time.
