Press Release from Schumacher Racing:
So the final race of the BRCA outdoor season is in the books. Heading into it both classes were yet to be decided. In modified, Schumacher's Olly Jefferies has been battling hard with Elliott Harper all season and either of them could take the championship and in Stock the battle would be between Schumacher Drivers James Hart and Zak Finlay with Colin Jackson having an outside chance.
In Modified Olly dominated proceedings with his prototype Schumacher chassis, winning all four rounds locking out TQ for the meeting. His rival Elliott would line up second from Zak Smith who was also very fast this weekend. Schumacher's Chris Ashton and Paul Pinkney would line up 7th and 10th respectively in the premier class.
Very undramatically the finals were again dominated by Olly, his superior car performance really showed and he was able to cruise to victory taking both legs and securing the BRCA National Title once again. Zak Smith came through from 3rd on the grid to jump Elliott to get 2nd overall with Elliott 3rd.
In stock qualifying was not so straight forward with 3 drivers tied on the same points at the top. James took it by the virtue of having the faster time, just 0.22 second ahead of Chris Gunter with Zak Finlay just a further 0.27 sec further back, super close! Schumacher's Marcus Askell lined up 4th making it 3 out of the top 4 cars being Schumacher in qualifying.
The finals saw James drive excellent controlled races to take victories in both legs by the smallest of margins, this was enough to give James, like Olly, the overall BRCA National Title in Stock. Zak and Marcus jumped Chris in the finals with Zak taking second and Marcus 3rd, making it a Schumacher top 3 in the stock class. Zak was runner up in the Championship making it a Schumacher 1-2.
So a fabulous weekend of racing to finish the BRCA Nationals which saw us take both overall Championships, a fantastic achievement for the drivers. Both Olly and James put a huge amount of effort into their racing which is a huge sacrifice that we appreciate. Congratulations from all at Schumacher!
