2017 BRCA LSOR season comes to an end

Large Scale Off Road

 2017 BRCA LSOR Championship - It’s all over for another season. On Sunday the 15th October at the Nene Valley Raceway Off road facility in sunny Northamptonshire the 2017 series finished with another 65 drivers participating in the series.

 

After Saturday practice and a night of fun and frollocks by the camp fire racing commenced just after 8:30 following our usual drivers briefing, and we finished for a first for the section, under flood lights around 7pm, that’s right over 10 hours of racing was had across the 3 classes and 65 drivers.

If you missed the live facebook feed then here is a bit of video from the final race of the meeting.

 

By the end of the day we had witnessed some close racing across the three scales just like we had seen during the whole series, for October the weather gods were with us and all 65 drivers had a great weekend, but who won I hear you ask ?
