BRCA – 1/8 Electric On Road National Round 5 – 2016 Report

1/8th Circuit

The sixth round of the BRCA National series took place last weekend at the Wombwell Model Car Club sponsored by Momentum RC. The weather was to hold out for a fantastic weekend of racing.

During Saturday practice the grip was surprisingly good for a dusty unused Wombwell circuit, Alex Thurston was leading the practice times and it looked set to be another display of domination by the young chap from Coalville.

On Sunday the weather was to remain warm and dry, with it becoming slightly over cast towards the end of the day.

After four rounds of qualifying the Electric A final would line up as follows:

Alex Thurston        -    17/ 304.285
Franck Dambrine    -    17/ 317.921
Paul Bellinger    -    -    16/ 305.519
Mathew Baker    -    16/ 311.711
Jamie Paton        -    16/ 312.781
Gavin Clinch         -    16/ 314.073
Russ Giles        -    15/ 309.604

John Russell        -    14/ 303.313
James Ellice        -    14/ 303.877

Heading into the finals on Sunday it was Alex Thurston taking tone to tone wins in both finals taking home maximum points from the weekend.
