Broxtowe 2WD Regional & Short Course wins

Broxtowe MCC held the opening round of the 2wd Mid East Regional Series this past weekend. With good weather forecast for the day the entry topped 90. However, the forecasters got it wrong and to start the day off we had light drizzle! The Broxtowe club had recently spent a lot of time money and effort getting their venue to a more permanent and ‘all weather’ standard. The track coped excellent with the persistent rain and gave an excellent racing surface in both the wet and dry.

With the changeable conditions it would be a matter of having the right tyres on at the right time. Rounds 1 and 2 were held in damp to drying conditions and Nathan Waters (DEX210) took TQ in both rounds using the car in the Mid Motor Configuration. Rounds 3 & 4 were much dryer and with that the grip level shot up catching many a driver out. John Spencer took TQ in these rounds and with a faster TQ time took overall TQ for the meeting.

2WD A-Final.
Nathan and John got off to a clean start and left the rest of the field in their wake. A battle ensued with the DEX210 driven by Nathan coming out on top and taking the A final win.

In Short Course Open class. The DESC410R once again was the most popular truck and took TQ in all four rounds with Adam Skelding taking the first 3 rounds and Nathan Waters taking the last round.

Short Course Open A-Final.
The final was a no holds barred affair between the two DESC410R’s, contact was plenty and some elaborate pursuit style manoeuvring allowed for some close racing with Nathan eventually taking the win from Adam.

The event was also the official shakedown for one of the Team Durango Gazebos which will be present at both 1/8th Scale and 1/10th scale Nationals throughout the season. The Gazebo will be a point of reference for any Team Durango customer or driver to come and seek help with set-ups or just for a chat.

Thanks to Mid East Off Road for the photos!
