“Mark Green wins opening round of British 200mm Nationals”

The first round of the 2012 BRCA 1/10th National Championship was held at the Mendip circuit, near Weston-super-Mare, UK. Despite the cold weather, around 50 drivers made the trip, all hoping for a good start to the season.

Saturdays practice for the opening round of the championship was fortunately dry and there were even a few glimpses of sunlight during the afternoon. The grip gradually increased throughout the day as the lap times got quicker and quicker.

Qualifying was dominated by Mark Green using a prototype Serpent 747 with defending champion Joe Kerry 2nd fastest using Serpent 733-TE. Both drivers were the only ones who managed to get below the 17 second lap time.

In the final it was the same story as Mark took the win just ahead of Joe to give Serpent a 1-2 finish. It was a very strong performance by Serpent as both Mark and Joe finished at least 4 laps clear of 3rd placed Simon Wood.
