Darren Bloomfield continued the excellent run of results achieved by the new Agama A215 by taking victory at Deerdale over the weekend.
With the 2015 BRCA National series re-introducing a round on Astroturf, Darren set about getting himself in the swing by getting some testing in early. Deerdale is a very technical track, and with local ace Graham Alsop in attendance for a comparison, Darren could not have given himself a bigger challenge. It didn't take long for Darren to settle in, taking the TQ honours and in the process beating the track record despite a few damp places where traction was limited was a resounding statement of what the car was capable of on the green stuff.
The final was a close affair, with the track starting to become a little moist as the race went on, and with both Darren and Graham on the dry weather tyres it was a very close battle that they both enjoyed. Darren came through to win by a scant 4 seconds to make it a Bullitt engine 1-2 at the head of the field.
Agama juniors Jonny Skidmore and Ollie Currie were 4th and 6th respectively as they too sought to build up some knowledge on this surface…
