BRCA Touring Car Nationals finale – Report

The final round of this year’s BRCA Touring Car Nationals were held at the iconic Aldershot last weekend. Heading into it both classes were yet to be decided. In Modified, Olly Jefferies has been battling hard with Elliott Harper all season and either of them could take the championship and in Stock the battle would be between Schumacher’s James Hart and Zak Finlay with Colin Jackson having an outside chance. In Modified Olly dominated proceedings with his prototype Schumacher chassis, winning all four rounds locking out TQ for the meeting. His rival Elliott Harper (Xray) would line up second from Team Associated’s Zak Smith who was also very fast this weekend.

Very undramatically the finals were again dominated by Olly, his superior car performance really showed and he was able to cruise to victory taking both legs and securing the BRCA National Title once again. Zak Smith came through from 3rd on the grid to jump Elliott to get 2nd overall with Elliott 3rd.

In Stock qualifying was not so straight forward with three drivers tied on the same points at the top. James took it by the virtue of having the faster time, just 0.22 second ahead of Chris Gunter with Zak Finlay just a further 0.27 sec further back.

The finals saw James drive excellent controlled races to take victories in both legs by the smallest of margins, this was enough to give James, like Olly, the overall BRCA National Title in Stock. Zak and Marcus jumped Chris in the finals with Zak taking 2nd and Marcus 3rd, making it a Schumacher top 3 in the Stock class. Zak was runner up in the Championship making it a Schumacher 1-2.
