NEMO Racing’s BRCA Nats Rd4 report

See: Nemo Racing

Once again, this past weekend, the NemoRacing team were back at the track situated at the race track in Pembrey, Llanelli, Wales. We had a lovely start to the weekend, the boys were down on the Friday evening setting up our tables ready to offer our drivers support. Everything got sorted quite early on, so there was plenty of time for a cheeky Nandos! The first day of practice and our drivers looked really good on the track. Darren Bloomfield and Joni Skidmoore both ran in high positions for the majority of practice and qualifying rounds, which was fantastic to see. Joni and Darren both ran the new Beta wing, which seemed to lend some level of stability to the car. Track conditions weren’t bad, though there were a few rogue rocks that seemed to be dotted around.

BRCA Truggy & E-Buggy Nationals Rd4 report

Race report by Nemo Racing:

This weekend we were down at the Pembrey track within the grounds of the famous Pembrey Race circuit for round 4 of the UK e8 and truggy national championships. We arrived a little cautiously on the Saturday to set up, all too aware of last weekend’s epic weather fail at the same track. We were delighted to find it was pretty warm and sunny, perfect race weather… that was the Saturday. Sunday morning arrived wet and dreary but we all pressed on, a little water never killed anyone important and we were all ready to go.

Southern Regional Series Rd2 report

See: Nemo Racing

This weekend was held the second round of the Southern Regional Series at Slough. The series brought nearly 100 drivers to the event, because of this there was only a bolt-on practise round for the drivers and with many having not driven on the track since the last national in 2016 it was a steep learning curve for most. In truck after 3 rounds of qualification, Jon “Nemo Racing” Hazlewood took a commanding TQ with his teammate Michael Shorey in 2nd.

This past weekend was held the opener round of the SRS UK Championships at the KMCC track. Here is the race report by Nemo Racing:

“Brilliant day yesterday at Round 1 of the 2017 SRS UK Championships which was run at the awesome Kent model car club. A full entry ensured a long day full of competition and fun, with the Nemo team spirit in full swing all day there was never a dull moment 🙂 Results wise we had a double podium in nitro buggy with Callum and Ollie whipping it up and making the full Nemo package look dialled on track. Callum was charging hard and was closing down on first place at a mesmerising rate. The Beta Freeride tire clearly holding up and lasting brilliantly compared to our competitors choice.
