XRAY X12’17 wins at the BRCA Nationals
The second round of the very competitive 1/12 BRCA Nationals was held at the permanent indoor circuit of MB Models, located in Leeds, in northern UK. Almost 100 entries gathered for a weekend of close racing. The XRAY UK team was in full effect with me, Olly Jefferies and Marcus Askell present.
In the 13.5T class I managed to take the overall TQ. I had my car pretty dialed in throughout the early runs. The field eventually tightened up for the finals. In the final I unfortunately had a traction roll in the early stages, which sent me down the order. I would recover to 3rd overall, but the biggest improvement came from Olly who moved up from 8th to 2nd!
In the new 6.5T blinky modified class on sunday, I would put my X12’17 on the top spot again after a perfect Q3 run. Olly eventually qualified 2nd after a good Q4, just a couple of seconds back. I led the final from tone to tone to take a great win! Unfortunately for Olly, he was crashed out by drivers from behind already on the first lap, and had no chance to fight for the win as a result.
Once again we have shown a great performance of the X12 car on this challenging UK track! On the sunday, I opted to use the new aluminium optional chassis and rear pod for my X12. I can really recommend these parts for high grip conditions, as it greatly improves the corner speed of the car, as well as reduces the risk of traction rolling!
