1/8 Circuit 2022 championship so far

1/8th Circuit

Round 2 Halifax recap - the last round of the championship was at the superb Halifax circuit starting out damp then drying out.

Tim Wood took TQ with his Picco powered Shepherd but Alex Thurston was to take the win for Capricorn from Andrew Hasting (Capricorn) and Karl Dransfield (Shepherd). So the nitro open championship after two rounds looks like this with Alex leading with two wins from Andy and Niall although Tim seems to have had his fair share of bad luck so far and remains up there on pace with Alex.

In electric we have had many new racers which is great to see with Michael currently dominating the electric class so far from Lee Henson and Justin. Greg Fairlie challenged at Brookland and Bob Harley briefly led a final at Halifax so we will see at Cotswold whether someone can take the win from Michael.


Niall has started the season consistently well with fifth and fourth overall that puts him third overall in the open championship and current leader of F1 championship.



Lee Palmer and Steve Smith fought closely at Halifax and lead the way in F2.

Ralph Crampton took an impressive B-final win at Halifax which now puts him clearly in the lead for the F3 championship.
