BRCA 2WD Onroad Nationals Round 2 Mendip – Report

The first round of the 2024 BRCA British 2WD Onroad Championship kicked off at the Mendip circuit near Weston-super-Mare on what would be their last visit to the circuit as it is being redeveloped.  This year the BRCA Championship is back to four rounds of qualifying, best two to count, with two finals for all. 
In F1 qualifying it was the Glen Westwood who took the first two rounds of qualifying with his Schumacher which was enough to take pole position.  Behind him it was Luke Lee and his Xray edging out brother Michael’s Schumacher by virtue of having the faster time for the tie-break with both having a first and second.  Next up was James Greener’s Xray with a second and a third from Rob Chaldecott who had three thirds.  The finals saw Luke Lee taking both legs for the overall win, from Westwood with a pair of second places while Michael Lee completed the podium.

qualifying it was defending Champion Ben Moorey, who secured pole by taking the last two rounds with his Schumacher.  Lining up second on the grid was the 2015 BRCA Clubman’s 17.5 Champion, Colin Jackson, with a first and a second with his Awesomatix, Jamie Hickin took third with his Awesomatix by virtue of the tie-break over Schumacher’s Andy Murray.
 Both legs of the final saw the same 1-2-3 with Ben winning from Colin and Andy with Jamie taking fourth overall.

Thanks to Mike Haswell from the BRCA 1/10th Electric Section for the report.
