2017 East Anglian GT12 regionals - Round 1

1/12th Circuit GT

The 2017 East Anglian GT12 regionals kicked off in style at Milton Keynes

The first round of the East Anglia GT12 Regional series was hosted by the Milton Keynes Radio Control Car Club at their Millmead Hall venue, Wolverton on Sunday 23rd April 2017. A full entry of 52 drivers squeezed in to the pits, arranged over two rooms and trackside with screens available to enable everyone to keep track of the days race schedule. It may have been cosy in the pits, but the track was large with a competitive layout. The format for the day for each driver, was a practice heat, four qualifying heats and two leg finals.
