Heavy rain the night and early morning meant a delayed start to the eighth round of the HNMC Winter Series that was held in the UK. Thanks to the track team and racers who helped prep the track plus clear all standing water early Sunday morning, the race kicked off at 10:30. Temperatures of 14 degrees Celsius and high gusts of wind helped dry the track and for the third round of qualifying the track condition was perfect. Simon Reeves (HB Racing/Shoot Fuel/Hot Race Tyres) set the overall TQ in the Nitro Buggy class while Holger Lykkee (XRAY) took the TQ in E-buggy and Richard Cousins in Truggy. Lewis Jones (Team Associated/Alpha Plus/Alpha Fire Power Pro Fuel/JConcepts) was able to take the win in the Nitro Buggy final from the TQ holder S.Reeves in second while Callum Niblett (XRAY) in third. Richard Miller (Kyosho/AKA) brought home the win from H.Lykke in 2nd. Less Reeder (XRAY/O.S.Engines/Pro-Line Racing) took the win from R.Cousins in Truggy.

 

Thanks Jim Thompson for the report.
