BRCA R3 Boughton – 4wd Qualifying Round 3

Round 3 of 4wd qualifying has just finished and it ha been drama filled. A combination of the track gripping up in cooler conditions, and mistakes from all of the front runners meant nothing was certain in this battle for TQ.


In my opinion, Michal Orlowski is way too quick for his heat – it’s unfair on him and its unfair on the others. He catches the back markers so quickly that they have very little time to react to the referee’s advice. On three occassions in Heat 6, Michal had problems relating to passing back markers or becoming a part of a back markers accident. A disgard for him for sure – 12/326.39

In heat 8, Paul Crompton had a fast run, but again the mistakes which have plagued his days so far continued. He went fastest in heat with one round to go on a 12/313.40. Lee Martin some seven seconds down the road also having difficulties over the run.

Round 3 – Boughton – 11/12 June 2022

Again, and somewhat as usual, all eyes were on Neil Cragg in heat 12. Neil put in a fast and accurate run with no errors but his overall speed was down. He was on for a 12/320 approximately before breaking the car on the last lap and dropping 10 second 12/331.46. Jamie Hall picking up the fastest time in heat and going third in round on a 12/321.92.
