Darren Bloomfield wrote himself firmly into the BRCA history books as he took his 4th 1/8 BRCA National title and with it, the 2nd most decorated driver in the BRCA national championship’s 33-year history.
The final showdown was set as Elliott Boots trailed Darren Bloomfield on points, on the back of two victories Rd 3 at Herts and Rd 4 in Pembrey. Bloomfield kicked off his title challenge in style as he TQ’d three of four rounds, and would go onto dominate the 45 min final having started on pole.
Lining up 2nd behind the Agama driver was recently-crowned (and now) Italy-based Elliott Boots, Elliotts showed flashes of challenging Darren, especially in the opening stages as he threatened Bloomfield’s rear gearbox, Darren however proved unflustered and would push on.
A Slough track that remains true to it’s natural ‘dirt’ surface roots, it proved a challenge for even the top pros as plenty of mistakes ensured positions were regularly swapped and mixed around, that was the case as Neil Cragg’s charge forwards having started 3rd came to fruition as Boots would have to settle for third. Jack Embling claiming 4th and Lee Martin taking 5th infront of Alsop and Skidmore, James le Pavoux in 8th, Michael Lewis 9th, Mitchell Booth rounding out the top 10, Jamie Clancy’s AE in P11, Lewis Beach 12th, Callum Niblett only making it to the 32 min mark and Milan Dragojlovic finishing 14th running an Agama this weekend.
A worthy Champion after a hat trick of consecutive national round victories, the British team succeeded at the Euros and look in good shape for Las Vegas in less than a month.
