Default Associated dominate at Southport National

Round four of the 2009 BRCA 10th off road National Championship series was held over the weekend of 18-19th July at the popular Southport buggy track.



After a domination by XFactory drivers during the 2WD series thus far - it was looking a similar story with XFactory cars taking the first couple of qualifiers in the hands of Phil Sleigh and Mark Stanley respectively. Round three saw Neil Craggs Associated B4 on top and to make it four different drivers from four, Danny McGee put his Losi/Atomic Carbon hybrid CR2 in the top spot.

Despite some great pressure especially from Mark Stanley, Neil Cragg dominated the finals - winning all three legs to take his first 2WD National of the season.

Reigning 4WD champion for the previous two years, Lee Martin, went out meaning business in the wet early morning of the 4WD event - taking the first three rounds of qualifying before Neil Cragg took the final round.
Like Neil had done in 2WD - Lee Martin took all three legs to take the victory after some intense and exciting racing.

Check out the full report here: http://www.oople.com/rc/photos/2009national-southport/index.html

Photo galleries to follow tomorrow

Jimmy

Love the report and oOple rocks. You make the UK RC scene look awesome.

Such inspiration to read, from all the way here in Sydney, Australia. I hope you get more recognition for your awesome work and duly rewarded finically. Keep up the good stuff, it's inspiring. There is nothing else out there as good.

Looking forward to coming over and racing in the uk at some point.

Cheers Geerno - where abouts do you race? I snuck a couple of pics from Australia into that report, I think the Hooters girl is from south Sydney, not sure of the area.

I race at St Ives. The track has recently undergone a 'transformation' from the old 89 worlds track to a boot camp of jumps Unfortunately it has been tamed down a little just this weekend, for the older drivers

EP Off Road scene is pretty healthy here right now.

If you are ever back this way, let me know if you need a proper job night out. I live in Potts Point next to Kings Cross, so I can easily navigate an epic pub crawl around the great watering holes of inner Sydney.

it is insane that Danny Magee had FTD in 2wd Qualifying and didn't make the A Final! That system, can't be the best?
