This past weekend saw the BRCA visit the MMR Raceway near Chippingham in the South for the 5th round of the 4wd UK 1/5th scale off road National Series. The track is 100% astro turf and very bumpy and very grippy. All weekend the temperature was in and out of the 20’c so the drivers had to get used to the very extreme grip level. Round 1 saw Stu Wood from MCD/KCR take the top of the leader board followed buy Jack Keatley from TLR and then Dave Parish from TLR. Round 2 and Stu Wood took the top spot again with Jack Keatley again in 2nd and now Ian Oddie from Elcon taking 3rd. Round 3 and Stu had a clean sweep. 2nd place was taken by Ian Oddie and 3rd saw Chris Sutcliffe from MCD/KCR.

The A Main final was dominated from start to finish by Stu Wood. Behind him Jack Keatley had a rough start and lost 2nd to Ian Oddie. Jack then went on to have a few issues and had to drop out of the final. Ian stayed 2nd for the rest of the final but 3rd was up for grabs for anyone. Leon Satchell from MCD/KCR got up to 3rd at one point but his bodyshell came loose and he had to retire. This then left Chris Sutcliffe in 3rd until the 3rd to last corner where he ran out of fuel to let Dave Parish take the last step of the podium.

Thanks to Stu Wood for the report.
