Mark Green wins BRCA 1/8 Circuit Nationals Rd3
The third round of the BRCA 1/8 Circuit National series took place this past weekend at the small, tight and technical track of Adur. Close to the limit for how small of a track a modern 1/8 scale car can race around, this track provides a unique challenge with heavy braking zones, tight hairpins, and a short straight to keep the drivers on their toes. Saturday was dry, warm and perfect conditions for racing, Andy Hastings, Neal King and Tim Wood were setting the pace during practice on Saturday. Sunday morning was a touch colder, but stayed dry through the day. After four rounds of qualifying Mark Green came out fastest on top of Andrew Hastings and Neal King.
