Rain Disappoints at the 2011 BRCA Nationals

As some of you probably know, the British Radio Car Association (BRCA) Nationals have been going on in England for the past few weeks, and I have a few snippets of news for you from the event.  This past weekend saw these races:

  • BRCA Large Scale On-Road National – 2011 – Round 3
  • BRCA 1/10th Electric Touring Car National 2011 R2
  • March Stockcars & Bangers 12th Oval National

I really wanted to get some cool information for these races, and then I realized the BRCA website sucks. So, after some digging, I’ll let ya in on what I found. Round 2 of the 1/10th scale Electric Touring Car National went to….wait for it…the rainy weather! It had been predicted all week, and everyone was hoping the weather people were wrong again, but they weren’t.

As the rain continued to persist the decision was to continue running the finals however worsening conditions after the first round saw an abandonment of the race, and unlike F1 the race didn’t continue. Under these rules points from just one leg of the finals count. So we did have some results, but not like they were planned:

Pro Stock
1 Zak Smith
2 Chris Slater
3 Lee Price
4 Jon Bowden
5 James Hart
6 Chris Neff
7 Sam Clifton
8 Mark Wallace
9 Kieran Clift
10 David Hall

6 Chris Grainger
7 Chris Ashton
8 Matthew White
9 Brian Eldridge
10 Alan Bickerstaff

From other news I have heard that the BRCA Large Scale On-Road National Round 3 may have been rescheduled due to rain. I cannot find any results on it, so I’m going to assume that is so.

I will continue to stay updated on the event and dig for more information as the Nationals continue.
