The BRCA Winter National meeting took place at Ardent Raceway on the permanent indoor carpet track. Qualifying was by FTD with the top 32 qualifiers going on to race a Reedy style Race of Champions with all drivers using 10.5 pro stock motors. Drivers not making the cut would contest the clubman title. The majority of the top UK national drivers were booked in and full quotas of 102 drivers were led away by current UK national champion Chris Grainger.
The previous week’s testing made it seem as if Andy Moore and Olly Jeffries could be the front runners and they sure were as they converted that pre event form into solid qualifying performances with Olly taking TQ ahead of Andy and 2010 BRCA Pro Stock champion Jonny Bowden.
The top 32 then went on to the Race of Champions as the remaining drivers went to a conventional UK national with round by round qualifying and three finals to decide the clubman’s title. Moore and Jeffries battled it out in the Race of Champions and it was eventually decided on a tie break with Andy Moore getting to vote by virtue of the fastest final time. What an exciting end!
