Round One of the BRCA Bike Nationals took place at the fast and flowing Brookland track in Kent. Saturday practise was well attended, with lots of new and updated bikes running well. The weather was Sunny if a little windy, everybody managed to get lots of laps in with the winner of most laps being Steve Leake, with his M3R-16 in the popular Stock class.
 
Sunday dawned bright and Sunny again, and thankfully a lot less windy, After round one Ken Gospel's RG led the way in Nitro, Gary Sims Jabber 15 in SuperBike and Darren Johnson's Jabber in Stock. Simon Lancaster improved in Round 2 to move his ZH 417 up to 2nd in the closely fought Stock class, closely followed by Gary Clarke with his brand new FF01-17 looking fast and consistent.
