Round 1 of the 200mm brca series was to start at the Halifax track.
Saturday was to be training but the weather was not good with the track only drying for a couple off runs.
Sunday came and the track was damp for the first couple of qualifying rounds but by the last round it had just dried out which gave me 2nd on the grid with the at hard to drive I would have to change it for the final. The warm up for the start of the final went very well with the changes the car felt good. I made a good start and was leading but just after the first fuel stop the engine stopped due to a front bearing so I had to stop so i finished 10th . I hope to have better luck at the next round at Mendip .
Thanks to the Halifax track and the 10th section committee and Happy Chris my pittman.

Efra GP Fiorano.
The EFRA GP held at the fantastic Fiorano track , I really do like this track it really pushes the car and engines to the limit . The weather did not want to play nice and we lost a lot of track time but the advantage of this is you can sit down and chat and eat the great food . After the track dried we had some runs and tested some engines and was ready for the qualifications . Due to the weather not looking good for Sunday the Race director took a vote to finish on Saturday which in the end turned out to be the correct decision . After the Quali rounds I found my self in the 1/4 final but I did feel confident that I could bump up to the semi and main final as the car was now working really good and was super easy to drive . I made a good start and was leading with 1 fuel stop to go , My engine was super efficient and I could do 5mins on a tank I came in for the final stop and left the pits but then I got caught out by another car and crashed so it ended my race but this is all part of racing , I can take away that I had good pace and the car was running great . Thanks to the Serpent team for the fun at the track and to Stef for the pitting .
Big Thank you to the Fiorano RC Track and the Guys and Girls that helped run such a good race meeting and to EFRA
