BRX Round 8 – The Making of Champions


BRX Round 8 - The Making of Champions

Heading into the final round of the British Rallycross championship and nearly every class was going to be decided during the final round. The question on everyone’s lips was could Julian Godfrey make it 5 titles in a row?

2015 has seen possibly the best supercar battles for many years, with the likes of Andy Scott, Kevin Proctor, Ollie O’Donovan all with European Rallycross pedigree. Godfrey did exactly what he needed to, although it was Kevin Proctor that clinched the round win it was all about Godfrey who claimed the championship and equaled the great Dermot Carnegie with 5 British championship crowns. It was Kevin Proctor who took the round win with Andy Scott in second and Andy Grant in third

Elsewhere it was 18 year old Daniel Rooke who secured the Supernational title. The Devon based driver finished in second place behind Paige Bellerby which was enough to see him clinch the championship over nearest rival Gareth Wood.

In the Suzuki Swift Championship all that reining champion Tristan Ovenden had to do was to simply finish the event. However, in true style he lead the A-Final from lights to flag, even after a restart which saw championship rivals Aidan Hills and Darren Scott unable to continue. Kent based Nathan Heathcote picked up second place and Jake Taylor claim his first senior podium in third place.
