Branson on top at EWS RD3 in Essex

The third round of the famous Essex Winter Series 8EWS) took place last weekend in the UK. As always, the event was fully booked and the crew around Oli Meggitt built up a challenging and flowing track for some great RC racing action.

In the Modified class, Kyle Branson (Xray/HW) secured the overall TQ, but was challenged closely by Harley Eldridge (Xray) in most of the rounds. In the Final, Harley had to focus more on defending from Alex Thurston (MB Models/HW), but the top three finished in the order they started.

In Stock, Zak Finlay (Xray/Zombie) was in control again, although in Q1 Tony Broad (Xray/Team Powers) was very close. Overall, Billy Fletcher (Schumacher/Team Powers) took second on the grid ahead of Tony. Zak dominated the final, which means he secures yet another overall EWS Championship. Bully and Tony had a nice fight, but the positions remained the same after the single-leg race.

Front Wheel Drive saw Shane Chipolina (Schumacher), Mark Gilliland (Awesomatix) and Andy Faulkes (Destiny) battle for the overall TQ and made up the top three on the grid. In the Final, Gareth Hollis (Awesomatix) had a Great Race with Andy and took third overall, as no one could touch Shane in the lead and Mark in a solid second.

In Junior-E, James Snashall took TQ and the win, with Harry Woron his closest challenger in both qualifying and the final. Frankie Fletcher qualified third, but Chloe Snashall came through to third in the final to round out the podium.
