23 February 2020This past Saturday (February 22nd) saw the fifth and penultimate round of our X-Factory UK Winter Series take place, with a nice break indoors away from the torrential wind and rain we have been seeing outside.
A twisty, tricky and technical track greeted the racers for this round and after all four qualifiers had run it was Mark Lewis (Associated B6.1) who would take the TQ in the 2wd class with his Tekin powered buggy with his round 3 time, followed by Alex Haywood (Associated B6.2) in 2nd who just missed out on TQ in round 4 by just over 1.5 seconds, Kevin Hunt, who was switching cars all day (Associated B6.1/X-Factory UK X6-S) completed the top 3 qualifying in 3rd.
Richard Miller (Yokomo YZ2) was in 4th, Abe Lyons (Schumacher Cougar Laydown) was 5th and Mark Keen (Schumacher Cougar Laydown) was last man straight into the A in 6th, the remaining A final spots would be decided as usual via the bump-ups and those who would promote from the B final
In 4wd, TQ went to Nick Dale (Yokomo YZ4-SF) with his round 3 time, Darren Boyle (LC Racing LC10B5) was in 2nd from Oliver Szymanski (LC Racing LC10B5) in 3rd, Sam Breton (LC Racing LC10B5) 4th, Jonathan Szymanski (LC Racing LC10B5) 5th and last man in was Simon Helson (Xray XB4) the rest would have to wait to see if they could bump from the B.
On to the finals and first up was the 2wd D final, this was taken by poleman Callum Boyle (Associated B6.1) with Marc Butler (Associated B6) taking the other bump up spot and joining Callum in moving up to the C final, narrowly missing out in 3rd was young Emerson Smith (Associated B6).
The C final saw Dan Marshal (Associated B6.1) take the win from P2 on the grid by the narrowest of margins, poleman Oscar Keen (Schumacher Cougar Laydown) took the final bump up spot ahead of Mike Ketteringham (Schumacher Cougar Laydown).
The B final was a great battle for the lead throughout the entire race between the front two. Polesitter Pete Lyons (Schumacher Cougar Laydown) took the win with Lex Clarke (Xray XB2) holding position to take the second and final bump to the all important A main. Just missing out in 3rd was Oscar Keen (Schumacher) who had made his way up from 8th on the grid after bumping from the C final
The 2wd A final was the last race of the day, poleman Mark Lewis (Associated B6.1) led the field away with Kevin Hunt (Associated B6.1) in close attendance behind him. Kevin would eventually take the win from P3 with Mark 2nd and Alex Haywood (Associated B6.2) completing the podium in 3rd.
In the 4wd class, the B final was taken by poleman Ian Watson (Team C TM4) with Jason Clarke (Xray XB4) taking the bump up spots with young Joseph Di-Ioia (FTX) missing the cut in 3rd.
Last to run was the 4wd A final, this was taken by Darren Boyle (LC Racing LC10B5) from P2 with Jonathan Szymanski (LC Racing LC10B5) taking second place from P5 on the grid and poleman Nick Dale (Yokomo YZ4-SF) taking the last spot on the podium in third.
