Bloomfield Wins UK National Warm Up

March 10, 2015

The NEMO Racing Team were in attendance at the latest round of the Deerdale winter series, and saw an excellent performance from the team including an outright win from Darren Bloomfield.
With the BRCA National Series re-visiting Deerdale and its Astroturf surface for the first time in a few years many of the top drivers have been putting in some practice in preparation, and this event saw most of the main protagonists in attendance to hone their set ups.
Qualifying saw another great battle between Graham Alsop and Darren Bloomfield, the Bullitt powered pair were out front and trading fastest times between them. Darren looked set to take the overall TQ in round 3 until a wayward back marker put paid to his challenge on the final lap, still he would line up 2nd behind Graham and in front of Lee Martin and Elliot Boots.
Agamas Jonny Skidmore lined up and excellent 6th and with Ollie Currie and Tony Truman also in the main final, the A215 was well represented on the grid.

The main final was a hectic affair and the pace at the front was relentless, all the guys at the front were flying and putting on a real show. Darren got to the head of the pack, only to make a small error and drop himself back to 5th. But as the race wore on he was able to reel them in and make his way to the front once again to finally take a 5 second victory despite a last lap error costing about 5 seconds. The battle for 2nd was incredibly tight and a last lap tumble dropped Graham from 2nd to 4th at the flag. Jonny Skidmore put in an excellent drive to take a well deserved 6th place with Tony Truman in 8th. Ollie Currie was running quickly early on but was forced to retire around mid distance.

We now look forward to the National itself, and see how everyone stacks up back on the green!
