BRCA National Rd 2 – Andy Moore wins for HPI

Tue, 1st June 2004

Andy Moore took a fantastic win with his HPI Pro4 at round 2 of the BRCA National Series at Snetterton on the 23rd May. This win follows a strong performance at round 1 of the BRCA series which saw both Andy Moore and Kevin Brunsden qualify in the Top 10, and unlucky not to win. At round 2 Andy drove super smooth and consistent from 4th on the grid to take the win over the 2 leg A Final format. Andy could only manage 4th in qualification due to missing the ideal early morning cooler track conditions when many of the Top 10 put their best times in, Andy had to wait for his 2nd set of tyres before being in as position to put his best run in, and joined his fellow Team Mates Kevin Brunsden and Darren Styles in 4th, 5th and 6th on the grid respectably. The A Finals are run over 2 legs so consistent finishes are very important in both Finals to take the top spot. From the start of Leg 1, Andy was able to follow Craig Drescher and Teemu Leino (who had made the trip over from Norway for the race) until a mistake from Craig resulted in a retirement and leaving just Andy chasing Teemu at the front. Come the last few laps of the race Andy was applying pressure to Teemu trying to force a mistake or a pass which ended up coming on the last lap as Teemu drifted a little wide onto the main straight and Andy nipped inside to make the pass stick, nice work!! Onto Leg 2 and again Andy followed the lead pack from the start, but it wasn’t long before Teemu tried an unsuccessful move on Craig that resulted in both spinning off and losing time. Andy avoided the trouble to drive past and remain in the lead until the end of the race for the overall win. Kevin and Darren finished in a very respectable 3rd and 5th place overall making it the most successful BRCA weekend for HPI so far…… Well-done guys!! Here are the BRCA Top 10 positions from Snetterton. 1. Andy Moore 2. Teemu Leino 3. Kevin Brunsden 4. David Spashett 5. Darren Styles 6. Craig Drescher 7. Chris Grainger 8. Richard Barton 9.
