This weekend was organised the 4th round of the 1/8 electric National. With all the E-buggy, E-truggy and short course class, it was around 100 drivers who did the trip in order to race on the nice Longvic track, situated near Dijon.
Track conditions cannot be better with an amazing sun, who allowed a perfect track really clean on the line.
Saturday qualifications was really good for me as I TQ'ed both buggy and truggy class. Both cars was just so good to drive!
Arthur and Felix missed by nothing the A main and will have to fight for the B main. Yann and Philippe will start in C. Maxime in D.
Sunday final will see a victory by the team in A, B and D final. Maxime will be more confident with his Sunday settings and will get his chance. Same for Young Felix who will drive perfectly, getting his B final. About me, after getting the 2 first legs of the main final, I missed my 3rd one after some mistakes. I will finally get the 4th leg of the final as well and the overall victory.
About the truggy, I will get all the 4 finals. Philippe will take 2nd place on the first 3 legs and will take 2nd place overall. Fantastic!
The last electric round will take place in Noeux les Mines inSeptember, the place where the nationals title on all the classes will be definitively defined.
The fifth and final round of the BRCA National Championships took place at Sough over the weekend with the Championship on the line between Darren Bloomfield and Elliott Boots. Elliott was in a strong position with Darren having to TQ and win, with Elliott being 14th or lower to take the title.

August Bank Holiday usually has a 3 day race of one form or another over it, and this year was no different. However the Herts club tried something different and rather than have a race dedicated to one tyre manufacture, they created an event where the 3 most prominent tyre brands in the UK
