Last weekend round five of the BRCA 1:10 Nitro On-Road National Championships took place at the Cotswold racetrack. Practice on Saturday was stopped three times for heavy rain, but during dry testing both Joe Kerry and Alex Thurston were working together to get the best from their Serpent 747 touring cars. In the 220mm GT class Glyn Beal was finding the competition much harder at this race with Peter Hellawell and Adam Crossland back on form.
Sunday morning the weather was much bette and after five rounds of qualifying Joe Kerry took TQ in the 200mm touring car class and Glyn Beal in GT – both were using Serpent 747s, OS engines and Xceed tyres.
The touring car final was won by Alex Thurston with Joe Kerry second and John Zottl taking third place. Alex and Joe will both be completing at the European Championships next week in Spain – good luck. The GT final was won by Glyn Beal with Peter Hellawell second and Adam Crossland in third place.
The next round takes place on 30-31 August at the very fast Halifax track.
