As usual BADMCC turned out a well prepared track for the racing. The team at BADMCC had obviously put in a lot of work over the winter and the new step up/down section worked well for 1/10 and provided a challenge to make sure you had your car going in a straight line!

 

Unfortunately, even though the weather was great, we had a poor driver turnout which would result in insufficient marshals for finals.  Therefore the decision on the day, agreed by the majority, was to proceed with the racing but take the final result based on the best 2 rounds of qualifying over 5 qualifying runs.

 

2wd Modified

Current championship leader, Dylan, made the best start on the drying track and took 1st in Rd1.  William and Bradley were close behind showing that the battle was on for the day.  In Round 2 Bradley took the win with the fastest overall time and laying down the new mark for everyone else.  Denzell improved his time for 3rd in Round 2.  Bradley took the win in round 3 showing that he was on form and really getting to grips with the challenging track.  Denzell just pipped Dylan for 2nd by 0.6s.  Round 4 saw Bradley continue the domination with another win and William chasing hard to improve to 13laps for 2nd.  Nothing was going to stop Bradley and he took another 1st in round 5 and secured overall 1st position for the day.  Dylan with the win in round 1 of qualifying was able to take second overall for the day with William taking 3rd from Denzell on a tiebreaker

 

 

 

2wd Clubman

Unfortunately Clubman was one of the classes with poor attendance and Tony Dorney took the overall win

 

 

4wd Modified

Bradley set the early pace with a win in rd1 with his Losi looking dialled on the difficult track.  William showed he was also fast on this track going 2nd, with only these 2 drivers managing 14 laps.

Another win with a faster time in round 2 for Bradley proving he was determined to dominate the 4wd class too! Dylan and Denzell were close in round 2 with Dylan taking 2nd place in the round

Dylan was showing improvements with a second in round 3 with Will in 3rd.  

Round 4 produced some drama with Bradley and Dylan both breaking down.  This allowed Will to take the win from Denzell.  Now only William could challenge Bradley for the overall win.

More drama in Round 5:  Dylan’s day got as bad as it could be with a breakdown in lap 1.  Then Bradley suffered another breakdown while leading the race on lap5.  William secured 1st place in round to tie with Bradley.  1st overall went to Bradley by virtue of a faster time, with Will taking second and Denzell taking 3rd from Dylan, also on a tie.

 

 

 

4wd Clubman

Tony Dorney took the overall win in 4wd clubman

So in the end we had a good days racing in the sunshine.  Bradley was in superb form and took the double.  Tony also secured a double win so these drivers certainly made progress in the championships.

 

 

Well done to both Tony and Bradley!
