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.

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.

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.
