Success across the board at Snetterton’s super weekend
Well, what a weekend that was. With the final rounds of Time Attack, Drift Pro and the Civic Cup all coming together at Snetterton across October 23rd and 24th, the air was thick with stinging hydrocarbons and the atmosphere could have been cut with the proverbial knife. Across all three disparate disciplines, there was all to play for and every single competitor was playing for keeps.
As the Champagne sprayed across the Time Attack podium, there was much to celebrate for #TeamBC. Subaru Impreza driver Paul Doyle, ended the championship as overall winner in the hotly contested Pro Extreme class, Paul narrowley won class by a very nail-biting one point!
Over in the Club 4WD class we had another Champion, with Sam Pickering finishing the year in first place; a particularly impressive achievement in that this was his debut season, in which Sam managed to net a club lap record as well as the overall honours. Before the weekend had already begun, Sam had already secured the top spot for his class due to 7 wins from 7 races leading up to the final two rounds at Snetterton.
Andrew Hawes brought the noise in the Clubman class in his angry little MINI, the ever-impressive driver having won six out of six rounds on BC Racing suspension, while Tim Bedford’s Mazda RX-8 came screaming into second place in a veritable ecstasy of spinning triangles.
Luke Woodham was firing out his customary mix of precision and flair in the Drift Pro championship, which is just what we’ve come to expect from this irrepressible and astoundingly skilful driver. His Monster Energy-livered Nissan S15 has become something of an icon in the UK drifting scene, with its form-and-function allure winning hearts across the nation. In the weekend’s Driftkhana event Luke took top honours, which was enough to swing the entire 2021 championship for him – testament to his mighty skills as well as the fancy footwork of his #BCequipped S-body.
The Civics proved to be just as entertaining as ever too, the closing season rounds bringing all the drama and nail-biting we’ve come to expect from this outstanding and engaging series. Mervyn Beckett’s vivid yellow EP3 Type R has been beguiling us all year with its superhuman abilities, and this weekend was no different; showing supreme hustle and impeccable agility, the plucky Honda brought home the silverware with Mervyn bagging the Production Class Championship for 2021. Magnificent successes across the board, proving once again that if you’re a talented racer with an eye on the top step of the podium, having BC Racing suspension beneath you will help to seal the deal. Join the guys in the springtime, and we can do it all over again!
