The busy weekend of racing continued for the Schumacher team and support staff with the first round of the BRCA Touring Car Nationals taking place at the Cotswolds circuit in Kemble.
The team were running the new Mi6 for the fist time at a BRCA National and it proved to be a successful weekend. In mixed weather conditions during qualifying Schumacher Elliott harper lined up third on the grid behind Chris Grainger and local ace Olly Jefferies. Elliott was making changes throughout the day to try and improve his Mi6 due to the changing track conditions.
After a disastrous first leg of the finals Elliott was under pressure to make the podium, needing two safe legs to salvage a result, Elliott drove within the car to gain a third and a second giving him his podium position.
In the 13.5 boosted Stock Class Chris Gunter was having fun with his Mi6 taking 3rd overall ahead of James Hart in 4th, Lee Price in 6th, Alex Brocklebank 8th and an awesome first A final appearance for 12 year old Louis Parker in 10th. Making it 5 Mi6's in the A final at its first serious BRCA meeting, an excellent showing!
The team moves on to Adur at the start of June for round 2, where they hope for even better results and further set up improvements for the new Mi6.
Congratulations to the team!
