North takes win at Keighley with DEX410

Graham North won the fourth round of the North West regional series at Keighley Model Car Club’s grass track venue. The victory was Graham’s second win in two years at the venue.

As the day went on the track cut up badly as it had at Batley earlier in the series.  It was as hot as an oven trackside and the surface was dry and hard with big chunks of dirt coming out as the track cut up.  dBoots Multibite tyres were coping the best as the track deteriorated, getting comparatively faster than other tyre choices as the day progressed.  Well placed TD cars in the ‘A’ final were Graham, Stuart Hurley, Paul Crawford and Damian Whittle – the Durango cars coping well with the tough track conditions.  Driving finesse gave way the ability to cope with the bumps and holes and pick appropriate lines to avoid them.

While he didn’t TQ the event Graham was near the front of the ‘A’ final, taking the lead on lap one as the other higher qualifying drivers succumbed to the track conditions and fell aside.  TQ man Dan Greenwood was the only competition to trouble Graham by applying pressure in the form of some quick laps in an attempt to draw the lead back.  It was to no avail due to multiple errors on track and Graham led from lap one to the finish, keeping a cool head on the rostrum, despite the hot sun!’
