Alex Thurston is 2020 British National Champion

The fifth and final round of the 2020 British 1/8th onroad Nationals were held last weekend at the Cotswold MCC track. From early practice Alex Thurston (Capricorn) was setting the pace, and a new outright lap record, but a massive crash in the first qualifier destroyed his car and he would miss most of the rest of the qualifying, only getting out for Q4. Tim Wood (Shepherd) would take the top spot in qualifying in front of Kyle Branson (Capricorn) in 2nd, with Thurston, winner of the 4 rounds of the series to date, in 3rd, with Mark Green (Serpent) and David Spashett completing the top 5. At the end of the 30 minute A-final, Alex Thurston would claim victory ahead of his team mate Kyle Branson, with Mark Green in 3rd. The win gives Alex the perfect score for this year’s Nationals and gives him the 2020 title.
