TorchRound three of the BRCA 1:10 Off-Road Nationals saw a new venue for the series in the form of TORCH in the very south of England. The all Astroturf track was very demanding and we saw some great racing during the weekend. In 2WD qualifying it was Yokomo’s Lee Martin who took pole position, with assistance this weekend from Shin Adachi as they prepare for the Euro’s warm-up next weekend. A close second and third on the grid were the Schumacher team mates of Darren Bloomfield and Tom Cockerill.
Torch-2wd-2The finals were all about these three as they shared a win and a second place each as their best scores after the three legs were run. It was Tom who came out on top thanks to having the fastest time by a measly half a second with Darren in second and Lee having to settle for third.
