Mid West Regional 2WD round 2:  Kidderminster Model Car Club

Laura Yardy

11th June 2017

 

Round three of the 2WD series was hosted by Kidderminster Model Car Club.

 

 

The day started cool, with sunshine forecasted for later in the day.

 

 

 

Qualifying

The layout was technical as always, and made the most of the track features including the concrete section.

The weather stayed dry throughout qualifying, but the previous days rain meant the track was wet for practice, starting to dry out once qualifying started.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Individual round scores were as follows.
