BRCA 1/8th Circuit - Round 6 Halifax Race Report

1/8th Circuit

Tim Wood and Craig Nutting edge closer to taking Championship wins...

 

Mid July saw the running of round 6 at the Halifax circuit, which saw a healthy entry of competitors across both classes with a few newcomers in the electric class, who race 1/12, and GT12 classes. The electric class is fast becoming a great way for 1/12 racers to race outdoors over the summer. We had debuts from Colin Mulligan, Paul Jenkinson and Stew Cartwright racing the ARC R8.1E chassis from Zen Racing.

The weather conditions were dry and warm perfect for 1/8 racing and the track had plenty of grip, having hosted other nationals in the weeks leading up to the event. It was important for drivers to get their fast runs in early as the track generally gets slower at Halifax. We had the usual mix in Nitro of Serpent, Shepherd, Capricorn, ARC and now an XRAY chassis fighting it out at the front for the A-final places. Another chassis present was Mugen, with a new car on the way soon from YMC Racing, although top driver Sam Snell was absent from this round. Andrew Hastings took pole position from Neal King, Mark Green and Tim Wood, all within a few seconds of each other. Matthieu Dambrine took pole for the B-final and in the Electric class Craig Nutting was the class of the field from Jamie Paton and newcomer Stewart Cartwright third.

Finals

Pole sitter Andrew Hastings was an early retirement meanwhile Tim and Mark fought it out at the front after Neal King hit tyre trouble, which dropped him back to 5th place. In the end Tim was able to take the win from Mark Green (Serpent) by just over three seconds to record another win for Shepherd as he looks to take another British Championship this time with a different manufacturer. Richard Hicklin took third also driving Serpent from Karl Dransfield making a return to 1/8 racing.

Daniel Ludena came through the field after a bad start to take the B final win from Steven Smith and Niall Cochran racing ARC. Chris Berry dominated the C-final winning by 3 laps from Roger Doran and Craig Illingworth in third. Driving a Serpent, David Briggs took the D final from Mark Ayers and John Glazbrook.

In the Electric class, the ARC chassis was now the more popular car from Serpent. The battle at the front for the win was clearly between two drivers, Jamie Paton driving a Serpent and Championship leader Craig Nutting. Craig took leg one by just over a second form Jamie and similarly in leg two by a couple of seconds. This gave Craig Nutting another win for ARC and Zen racing from Jamie and Stewart Cartwright completed a good weekend finishing on the podium in third, after also helping- out with some finals commentating. Thanks Stew.
