2wd-top-threeRound two of the BRCA Off-Road Nationals were hosted by Southport Radio Car Club – a mostly Astroturf track with some concrete and cobbles, it provides a tough challenge for the drivers and with the weather good for virtually the whole weekend the grip levels were good and consistent.
In the 2WD event it was Darren Bloomfield (Schumacher) who found the pace to take the pole position ahead of Chris Evison (Kyosho) and Lee Martin (Yokomo).
2wd-top-three-carsIn the finals, Darren took all three leg wins – never once losing the race lead – to take a dominant overall win. Lee took the fight to him the best he could, but it wasn’t enough as he took three second places for second overall.  This left the final podium spot up for grabs and it was Tom Cockerill (Schumacher) that clinched this after some close racing.

4wd-top-three-carsThe finals were great races with Neil pushed all the way by Lee. With a win apiece, the final leg was to be a decider between Neil and Lee. A bad start for Lee saw him giving his all but it wasn’t enough to catch Neil who went on to take the overall win ahead of Lee and Kevin.
