The fifth round of the Worksop Series took place this past weekend, the penultimate race of the Series!
There was huge demand to try and get a race entry for this event, possibly one of the biggest entries throughout the UK for an event in recent times. 16 full heats was the order of the day!
As always Round by round qualifying was the racing format, with the best 2 results from 4 rounds of qualifying counting towards the final position.
In 2wd Craig Collinson was trying to help his Championship chances while both Neil Cragg and Danny McGee were not at the event, due to them having other commitments.
He gave himself the best chance by taking TQ and lining up on Pole position for the A Final. He controlled the final and took the win from a hard charging James Helliwell who drove brilliant to finish in
2nd position, and Tom Cockerill finished 3rd.
The A Final 2wd result was:
1 Craig Collinson Team C
2 James Helliwell Schumacher
3 Tom Cockerill Yokomo
4 Jonathan Skidmore VBC
5 Steven Pierce Yokomo
6 Richard Lowe Team C
7 Mitchell Fiddling Schumacher
8 Andrew Twigger Xray
9 Allan O Brien Team C
10 Greg Williams Schumacher
In 4wd it was Richard Lowe who set TQ. However in the A final he just touched the track marking coming onto the main straight and this was enough for Schumacher's Greg Williams to slot his car
through the gap and take the lead. For the remainder of the race, Richard was giving lots of pressure to Greg who drove superbly well to hold on to take victory.Richard finished 2nd and Steven
Pierce finished in 3rd.
The 4wd A Final result was:
1 Greg Williams Schumacher
2 Richard Lowe Team C
3 Steven Pierce Xray
4 Allan O Brien Team C
5 Jack Neal Schumacher
6 James Helliwell Schumacher
7 Jeff Steele Schumacher
8 Craig Collinson Team C
9 Luke Holdsworth Team C
10 Mitchell Fiddling Schumacher
A fantastic event once again!
