Kent would host the second round of the BRCA Truggy nationals. A very wet build-up to the event would lead to concerns over the state of the track but we arrived to a very well prepared track. The weather was warm and the track was pretty dusty. The format would be 4 rounds of qualifying with 2 to count, and a 24 minute A-main for Truggy. The Team Durango DNX408T would dominate all of qualifying. TQ’s in Rounds 1, 2 and 4 would go to Chris Doughty, TQ for round 3 would be taken by Richard Cree. This would leave the Team Durango DNX408T’s to line up 1st and 2nd on the grid for the 24 minute main.
By the time the final had started, the rain which had held off all day, had started to fall and the track was starting to get wetter. The final progressed with Chris leading from Richard until about 15 minutes into the final. A suspected blown glo-plug put Chris out of the race after running so strong. Richard Cree would inherit the lead and never look back, running clean fast laps through to the end of the finals in the challenging conditions.
So with 2 BRCA Truggy nationals complete, at 2 different tracks with 2 different winners… Both with the DNX408T!
