This weekend saw the popular Frankley Club Winter Series, and despite the gruesome weather RCPB still made it, with Ben Billing, Alex Page and Gary Gregory braving the weather to get their nitro fix.
The track was slightly soggy but still raceable - well done Frankley club guys for all your hard work. All three drivers made good progress in qualifying, with Ben and Gary, 1 and 3 respectively and Alex just behind missing out narrowly on the A final.
Alex unfortunately had problems and was unable to run the final which left Ben and Gary, both of which made very good starts and Ben Billing running his Sworks/Nova Rossi combo took the Win and his podium record continues, Gary and his Radiosistemi RR8 also had "weather" issues in his final but still finished 6th. Great job for racing in this unfortunate weather guys and Well done to Ben on his win.
Pictured below are the Radiosistemi RR8s at the meeting with Gary Groegory's 3rd from left.
