Bloomfield wins BRCA Warm-Up

Bloomfield 2

The recently re-developed Kent track held a round of their summer series on Sunday, and with a BRCA National around the corner, several of the top drivers were in attendance to gain some useful knowledge prior to that event.

From the NEMO stable, Darren Bloomfield, Jonny Skidmore and Ollie Currie were all there to gain knowledge and enjoyed the excellent track. Darren would have a close battle with Elliott Boots in qualifying as the two guys traded times, but it would be Darren that would go on to take the victory in the main final after an excellent display. Elliot fell victim to some errors while trying to maintain the relentless pace that Darren was able to set. The NEMO young guns put on a great show to battle over third and the final step on the podium. Jonny Skidmore would eventually edge out friend and team mate Ollie Currie to take that position.

All the drivers were quick to compliment the club for an excellent improvement on their track, and now we look forward to both the Truggy/E-Buggy National and the Nitro Buggy National at the same venue shortly.

Qualifying was dominated by Alan Scroggie, who stole TQ away from the hard charging Bradley Baird and Barkley Abernathy. When it came time for the 45-minute finale, Scroggie started out front and never looked back, taking the overall victory with his Bullitt powered Agama buggy. JQ’s Bradley Baird would finish second, followed by the Agama of Abernathy in third.
