Tim Wood wins BRCA 1/8th IC Track Nats opener

The opening round of the 2019 BRCA 1/8th IC Track season started at the Brooklands circuit in Kent on the south coast. A good entry of drivers descended on the track, which was in its best condition since returning to the calendar. After a solid days testing on Saturday, the race got underway on Sunday morning. Shepherd’s Tim Wood took the TQ honours from Serpent’s Mark Green after two rounds of qualifying before rain halted proceedings. The start of the A-main saw a good battle at the front in challenging conditions as the track was almost dry. At the end of the 30-minute encounter, Tim converted the TQ into his first win and took with it maximum points plus fastest laps in qualifying and the race. ARC’s David Spashett took a strong 2nd place from Shepherd’s Andy Hastings who had a great drive from 10th on the grid.

Top 3 results:
1. Tim Wood – Shepherd/Picco – 113L
2. David Spashett – ARC/Picco – 109L
3. Andy Hastings – Shepherd/Picco – 104L

We understood that David Spashett had to leave before the price giving ceremony, hence you see a handsome looking placeholder.
