RCCAOI National Rnd 1 race report.
The National series got off to a flying start in Aghalee for round 1, on the 13th of May last. The weather was good, the attendance was high, and the facilities were among the best in Europe. The track was high grip, due in part to the repeated application of a molasses solution, and in part to the highly compacted nature of the dirt sections, which meant tire choice was critical.
The practice went off well, and gave everyone plenty of track time to get their set up right, their engines tuned and their driving lines dialed in. Out of the heats Bradley Baird took the Top Qualifiers position in Nitro with his JQ, Alan Scroggie had the number two spot with his Hot Bodies, with Paul Myles in the three slot with Kyosho. This was also the result of the A final in Nitro, consistent driving from these three drivers.
In Electric class, Bradley took the win making it a double for team Baird, David Telford came in second, with Andrew Rennick taking third, all three drivers running JQ, so a good result for JQ in the E buggy class.
The next round, Rnd 2 of the Championship is in Cork on the 14th / 15th of July, with the warm up event, The Southern Dirt Challenge happening next weekend on the 23rd / 24th of June #shameless-plug J
