Round 3 of the BRCA 1/10th Off-road Nationals was held at Eden Park Raceway in the south-east of the UK this past weekend. On Saturday the 2WD class commenced and the weather was wet with drying conditions but with some extra rain showers over the day kept the conditions interesting with some drivers round being affected.
Schumacher driver Ellis Stafford qualified 2nd behind Team Associated driver Neil Cragg. The 3-legged A-final was hard fought, with Ellis fighting to get past Neil. With matching scores overall but with a 2nd place and a faster winning final time gave Ellis the win he deserved. Nathan Ralls (Xray) had to settle for 3rd overall. Sunday was a much brighter day with sunny spells and only a very brief shower. Ellis Stafford took TQ this time with Danny Mcgee close behind in 2nd spot. The finals were hard fought by all with an early mistake from Ellis Stafford left Danny in 2nd but Neil Cragg was able to get past Danny and take the win in the first leg. In leg 2 Ellis, Danny and Neil had a battle, with Danny getting into the lead but after a retirement from Danny this left it to Ellis to take the win with Ed Kerry getting 2nd. The last leg meant that four cars could win it, Ellis unfortunately made an early mistake dropping down the field which meant Danny Mcgee had a lot of pressure from Neil Cragg for a majority of the race but defended superbly until Neil made a few mistakes which allowed Tom Cockerill to catch up and take the second spot. With the race over and with a win and a second from Danny he took the win and his first 4WD in his racing career as Neil Cragg and Ed Kerry completed the podium.
