Round 5 Report courtesy of BRKC.

Local driver Neil Maccines scored an Overall victory on his BRKC debut at Raceland in Edinburgh with a last corner overtaking manouvre which caused much debate among the spectators.

With very changeable weather conditions causing problems for the less experienced foreign drivers, several local favourites emerged during the day.

BRKC stalwart Michael Weddell, series returnee Steven Dailly and newcomer Neil Macinnes all scored identical points totals during the heats to line up third, second and first on the grid for the A-Final respectively.

As the main event got underway, polesitter Macinnes and second placed man Weddell were able to establish a convincing gap to Dailly and Hackett in third and fourth. Weddell set about closing down the half second gap to the lead, and was able to move into first place with a decisive move in the technical bottom section of the track.

On the final lap the leaders were inseperable – and when a small gap presented itself at the final corner, Macinnes made his move, aggressively barging Weddell wide. The officials deemed the pass legal, and Macinnes won at his first BRKC event.

In the Heavyweight Class battle, 2012 champion Anwar Beroual-Smith proved untouchable with Gavin Love and David Whitehouse securing their maiden BRKC podium finishes in second and third place.

Round 4 Report courtesy of BRKC.

Sean Brierley moved back into serious championship contention with a stunning performance at Matchams Karting in Bournemouth, on a day when his main championship rivals suffered various problems. After practice, the drivers each took part in three heats of ten laps. When the heats were complete, the order at the front was Brierley, followed by Sam Spinnael and Connor Marsh.

Championship leader Lee Hackett could only manage to qualify for the C-Final after three difficult heat races. Ruben Boutens, another title contender also encountered difficulty moving up the order during the heats. In the A-Final, Brierley was able to maintain a lead at the start before Spinnael began to mount an attack. This in turn allowed Marsh to close in on the top two.

Near to the end of the race, Marsh began to increase the pressure on Spinnael and made a move for second place into turn 1. Spinnael fought to keep the place but ended his race in the turn 2 barriers. This allowed Michael Weddell to add another podium finish to his record at Matchams.

In the Heavyweight Class, James Fitchew scored an impressive victory, closely followed by local driver Anwar Beroual-Smith and Paul Lycett.

The GridKings prize for best move of the race went to Daniel Truman.
