A big thanks to all those who made it to the Nook for Round 4 of our series yesterday and thanks to the weather towards the end of the day some interesting racing was seen in the final two finals.
Due to the weather I think most of you missed the presentation at the end but I can confirm that the standard engine was won by ticket number 7. This ticket belonged to Dave Ashton so well done Dave on this and the 2 wheel drive final win.
Our next round will be a return visit to MMR raceway just off the M4 in Wiltshire before a few of the UK drivers head over to the French Euros a week later.
The results for rnd 4 are now online
Jun 15 2016
Tickets will be £5 each and available from Andy Knight throughout the weekend.
As announced at Kendal, Mike Humphreys has obtained from MRS a 26cc tuned engine, and also an MRS head kit. These two items along with other articles generously donated to the section will be raffled at the final round of the 2016 series with tickets available at rounds 5,6,7, and 8. Again the tickets will cost £5 each and available via Dane Whittleston and Andy Knight. You do not need to be at the final round to claim the star prize or head kit but able to collect if from a committee member or one of their home clubs.
On behalf of the section I would like to thank MRS and Zenoah for their generosity with the engines and to our other suppliers who have contribute towards the Rnd 8 raffle.
Please support these raffles as for a little outlay you could win one of two engines or even some cable ties at rnd 8.

Firstly good luck to the uk drivers going over to the Euros next month and if you have not seen the following from Mike then please read :-
Some small points to think about for the Euros.
Don’t take UK race fuel, there will be a designated fuel station posted on the club website and that’s where you must get it from. – Fuel will be tested during the week
Pitting area would normally be done in countries – they will have power, don’t forget your adapter plugs and extensions. You will probably have less room than you would normally have. I doubt that the pitting area will be secure enough to keep your gear in all week. If possible double up with someone else and share tools for the week. The pitting area is not where you are camping either so bring what you need to the pitting area.
Each race – only 1 mechanic plus the team manager as an observer are normally allowed in the pit lane – 2 mechanics and team manager in the finals.
Schedule – this will be posted within the team area but is normally as follows.
Monday & Tuesday free practice in groups – seeding for timed practice will follow this.
Wednesday – Timed practice plus reseeding for qualy if required.
Wednesday afternoon – open ceremony plus welcome dinner, normally free for drivers but charged for mechanics and family.
Thursday – Qualy
Friday – Qualy and some sub finals
Saturday -Finals and presentations.
Practice – normally 8 minutes plus a couple of minute warm up and your last lap.
Qualy – normally 10 minutes plus warm up and last lap.
The time clock will start at the designated start time each morning and run until the end of that days racing – if your are not in the pit lane ready…. tough luck.
The sequence\race heat order will change throughout each day. – Read the time table
If you’re not in your marshalling position before the start of the next race, you WILL loose your best time. If you’re a driver on last on a particular day, this means you will marshall first – BE THERE.
For the A finals, every country will be asked to provide marshalls – these will be names drawn from a hat.
There is NO excuse not to marshal – ask someone, pay someone, just make sure they are in the right place at the right time. Anyone not doing the marshalling required will be reported to the BRCA Exec.
Any questions, please ask on here or at the Nook.
