In previous years, the Muchmore UK GP has attracted World Champion racers and has always been a ‘launch’ platform for young R/C talent destined for Regional, National and International competitions and it was local club racer, Peter Eagles who took a clean sweep in all three of the A main modified finals to take the round win, followed up by John Simpson in 2nd and Andrew Walters in 3rd.  It’s great to see these racers now regular attending BRCA national competitions.  Modified class has always been popular at the large Stonehaven track and the B final was won by local racer Alex Keith, followed up by Keith Eagles and Justin Clegg.

In the supporting Formula 1 class, Andrew Walters, another racer that started out racing at the Muchmore GP a few years ago, took the overall win, following his F1 debut at ETS Slovakia last month.

Pro-Stock class run’s a 13.5t brushless motor, with open ESC choice and is always more popular at the Carlisle round where it is a club class too.  The top 4 drivers in the class were in very close contention for the title but with a win in 2 out of 3 of the finals, it was Ian Willacy who took 1st place from Jeremy Stephens in 2nd and Rob Harry in 3rd.

The SPEC class has also proved popular running 17.5t brushless motors with a ‘blinky’ ESC and remarkably the grid position of the top 5 was repeated in the results of all 3 finals with the top 5 cars finishing in grid position in each of the 3 final racers and pole guy David Fraser therefore taking the overall win.

The ‘Mini’ class is another supporting class that continues to grow with a large entry this year.  Denis Milton took the overall win in the C final from Logan Spiller and Evan Morris.  Nick Roccas took the overall win in the B final from Joe Anderton and Edward Burnett.  In the A final, Mini specialist Paul Davidson took the overall win from Chris Mitchell and Callum Keith.

We look forward to the overall series champions being decided, following the Carlisle round in August!

Muchmore UK would like to thank all at the Stonehaven club for organising a fantastic event.
