Stock Wins for Schumacher at Ardent


The second round of the Ardent winter on-road series took place over the weekend of 14 November, with the Schumacher team once again in attendance. The series uses the Sorex 28JB control tyre and this has proven to perform well for many runs without deterioration in performance which is excellent for the drivers and for sure adds to the popularity of the series, which at this round topped 14 heats.



In the 13.5T class, Schumacher driver Liam Brooks put in a strong showing once again by taking overall TQ from Nigel Shaw and track owner John Dawson.  Liam did enough in both legs of the finals to take the overall victory with a win and second as the top three ended in qualifying order.



In the faster 10.5T class, Schumacher employee Chris Ashton was racing in preparation for the BRCA Winter National and he joined a high quality field. The TQ position was contested hard by three Schumacher drivers, James Hart, Chris Ashton and Darren Lee. Chris clinched it in the final run with the new Mi4CX prototype, less than a second ahead of James with Darren third. The finals were fast and furious affairs but the outcome was the same as qualifying as Chris won from James and Darren to make it a Schumacher podium.
The big boys modified class was dominated by track local Andy Moore who took TQ and a comfortable win with Olly Jefferies in second. Schumacher’s Chris Grainger and Matt White battled hard in the finals, but after some panel bashing incidents they were left in midfield positions. So overall two TQ’s and wins in the 2 stock classes saw a good return for the team and another race win for the soon to be released Mi4CX. Click here for the full meeting results.
