V-Dezign Dominate AMC/CARS Summer Shootout Round 1
The UK V-Dezign 1:12 scale team continued their dominant form from last winters nationals at round 1 of this summer’s Action Model Centre supported Summer Shootout series at the home of UK 1:12 scale racing – Chesterfield.
Team leader Andy Griffiths dominated qualifying and won every round to TQ by an impressive 6 seconds ahead of newly crowned British and European stock champion Chris Kerswell. Chris was a mere 4 tenths of a second faster than Mark Stiles after the pair enjoyed a very close battle during the last qualifying run. This made it a V-Dezign lockout at the front of the A-final grid!
In the A final Andy Griffiths cruised to a comfortable win and eventually lapped up to third place! This will give Andy a real boost and some good form to take to the IFMAR Worlds at the end of June.
Mark Stiles finished 2nd after a race long battle for the position with team mate Chris Kerswell and the CRC of Mick Farrell. Mick finished 3rd ahead of Chris, with the Corally of Andy Sawyer finishing a very distant 5th.
