BLCC Autocross Round 4

June 24, 2017

Round 4 of the BLCC Autocross series took place on the 28th of May and aside from some rain, produced a fine day for racing. Paul Gladman directed the event while Bernie Gladman provided a wonderful Diner full of food to keep the hungry masses fed. The course was run backwards with the full track in use for the first time in what felt like ages with a nice chicane on the front straight to throw an extra challenge into the mix. Our in-field officials braved the rain and wind to keep the cones upright and thanks must be given to them with Martin Cassar, Wayne Holness, Barney Haddon and Michele Bayley all spending time on the infield along with Rudi Simonis who came along to help too. The event was quickly run with little to no hold-ups and it was a rare occasion where we had finished the event and were home around 3pm. So congratulations once again to Paul Gladman for running the event and providing a great day of racing for all involved with Ben Mckee taking the outright victory in his Liberty after rebuilding his suspension following an incident during RD2, with Ben quickly boosting his lead in the Autocross points again.
