BRCA 1/8 Circuit Rd4 - report

1/8th Circuit

Round 4 of the series followed a new regional approach with the 1/10ic section so drivers could compete at Wombwell or Adur circuits.

There was a nice atmosphere in the pits and the red hot weather meant for a good weekend’s racing for all.


At Wombwell Alex Thurston took TQ for Capricorn but had some engine flame outs in the final which dropped him down. This would give Tim Wood the opportunity to return to the top for Shepherd with his luck back from team mate John Carr coming home 2nd and Alex recovering to take third.
