In the finals Kerswell could take 2nd place with Serpent 411 in BRCA Nats.

The final round of the 2011 BRCA national championship took place at Mendip.
As with most of the UK nationals this year, rain would play a big part of
The first round of qualifying was a mainly dry affair with Chris Kerswell
continuing to show the pace of the Serpent S411, qualifying 2nd in round
despite a mistake which cost him the TQ. After this the rain came and the
qualifying order was shaken up with the top heat getting the slowest track
conditions for rounds 2 and 3. Despite this Chris lined up 4th overnight,
which, considering that the current and previous national champions were in
the C final, was impressive!
Rounds 4 and 5 were once again wet and some more top 10 times secured Chris
5th on the grid. In the first wet final Chris fought his way through to 2nd
but was unable to catch the leader before the end of the race. Conditions
started to dry and by the last final the track was completely dry. The S411
was once again class of the field and Chris battled through to win the leg
comfortably with some very close action as he made his way to the front.
This left him tied on points with Matt White who won the final on tie break.
Attached are the setups Chris ran in both the wet and dry.
