Last weekend the BRCA Touring Car National season came to a close with a fantastic win for long time Schumacher driver Matt White in the modified class.
Once again conditions were against the drivers with the track changing seemingly every 5 minutes, making qualifying difficult for many. However Matt managed some stella qualifying runs to take the TQ spot with his Mi4CX ahead of Olly Jefferies and Tom Watts. Schumacher’s Tim Langdell and Chris Ashton also made it into the main. Notable for their absence were Chris Grainger, Andy Moore and Elliot Harper all down the field unable to put sufficient runs together throughout the weekend.
In the Pro Stock class the results conformed a little more to the norm with championship winner Ayrton Anderson continuing his domination taking TQ and the win ahead of Schumacher’s James Hart with his Mi4CX and Andy Murray.
A flag to flag victory for Matt in the wet in the first leg of the finals gave him a great chance to take the overall win. A slight blip in the second leg saw Matt well down the field but a second place in the now dry conditions of the third leg saw him take his first Touring Car National win!! A fantastic achievement for a guy who has been a loyal servant to the Schumacher brand since 1997!!
Chris Kerswell was second and Olly Jefferies third. Schumacher’s Chris Ashton made fourth from the 7 spot and Tim Langdell 9th.
Congratulations to Matt on a great win and all the team for a great performance over the year!
Next up the carpet season!!
