The new championship should have started this week but someone (who wasn’t me…) forgot to bring the transponders which meant a few people missed out on some of their laps. In light of this it seemed a little unfair to start the championship this week. Providing someone (who isn’t me…) remembers to bring the transponders next week, we will kick off the new championship then and it will run up until Christmas. Next week is also truck week.

This Sunday is round 1 of the Winter Whip series down at 1066 in Hastings. In case you haven’t heard, shock protectors are now mandatory there since they replaced their carpet. The FORCC winter series starts the following Sunday and Barhams final round of their Summer series is the week after.
So this week was Jodie’s last week (at least for a while) at the club. She has been the smily welcoming face at the club for many years and we’re sad to see her leave but at the same time we wish her all the best for the journey ahead at Plymouth University and beyond 🙂
In time honoured tradition, it was only right that gave her a fitting send off…
Results from the last 2 weeks have been updated and overall championship results are now available. Congratulations to Neil for taking the 2WD crown, followed by myself in 2nd and Adrian and Alan tied on points in 3rd. 4WD was won by Jay followed by Mickey in 2nd and John in 3rd. Full results are of course in the Results section of the site. We’ll run a few non-championship weeks before the next championship starts but next week is Truck week so they will of course be running for the championship as normal.

The outdoor Regional and National Championships may have finished but we’re not quite done with outdoor racing just yet. Barham still have 3 meetings left (This Sunday and 16/10 – Updated today after talking to Gary). 1066 also start their Winter Series on 2/10 and we start our Winter Series on 9/10.
Sorry for the delay, but it’s all been a bit hectic the last week or so.
The weekend before last saw the final Regional for this year up at Barham. It was a fantastic turnout with over 40 drivers. Thanks to Gary and the BRCT crew for putting on a great event.
We’re just waiting on Brookie to return and sort out the overall championship positions. The new BRCA F-Grades should follow shortly after 🙂
Last weekend saw the final National of the year down at TORCH near Southampton. TORCH is a fantastic venue with a natural amphitheatre for viewing the races.
Saturday saw the 2WD championship conclude with a tie for 1st place between Lee Martin and Neil Cragg with the South East’s very own Ellis Stafford taking 3rd spot. Sunday saw Lee take the 4WD crown with Neil in 2nd followed Tom Yardy in 3rd.
The hall is being resurfaced (again… or at least we think that is what’s happening) so we can’t get into the hall that week.
Another super busy week with 16 2WDs, 16 4WDs and 12 Trucks. Awesome 🙂

Last weekend saw the final 4WD Regional for the year held down at Eastbourne.
The track made for some great old skool grass track action and held up really well during the day. Thanks to the EECC guys for putting on a great meeting. They are hoping to keep the off-road track out and get some more meetings on it in the future.
The final 2WD Regional meeting of the year is this Sunday at Barham.
