UK – TORCH Summer Series Round 2 Serpent SRX-2 MM dominates
Report by Tony Evdoka
It was a nice day for racing at the TORCH national venue.
Not a massive turnabout as there are many events up and down the country including regionals and so on
Good to see plenty of juniors racing at the club and all doing very well.
At the club the Juniors race separate to the main competitors till they become good enough and confident enough to compete at a higher level.
Dylan Saunders and his brother Vinnie were racing their Serpent cars under the watchful eyes of Dad Saunders and boss Tony Evdoka.
Another up and coming junior, Jamie Pringle was also racing his Serpent car under the scrutiny of Team driver Craig Maher.
A great new layout for the event that was fast and technical at the same time. Big and small jumps as well as fast sweeping bends make it demanding on the cars as well as the drivers.
The finals were all decided after 3 legs to make it fair for everyone.
A great result for the Junior Serpent drivers, with Jamie finishing 2nd, Dylan (8 years old now – near a veteran) finishing 3rd and Vinnie finishing 5th.
On to the adults and the Serpent team were all pitting together and this clearly paid off. The boss Tony Evdoka taking the win from Team Serpent driver Dan Harper Brown 2nd, and Schumacher local hero Stephen Brown in 3rd. Craig Maher with his Serpent rounded off a great day for the Team with a 4th , giving Team Serpent 3 out of the top 4 spots.
