The final round of the Schumacher BTCC took place over the weekend for the final time at the Midlands based club Ashby. Unfortunately this great club who once held the European Touring Car Championships in 1999 is set to become developed into a housing area. An emotion final race of the series saw the long relationship with the club and the Schumacher BTCC come to an end.
Modified Championship leader Elliot Harper had already rapped up the series at the penultimate round but showed all the mod boys the way home with a victory at this round followed by HB buddy Stu Noble and Schumacher’s David Hall. Elliot took home the coveted Cecil Schumacher Trophy for the year followed up by the hard charging Colin Price and Sam Smith both with their Mi3 rides.
Jonathan Dronfield dominated the 19t class taking TQ and 1st position in front of fellow Schumacher drivers Dewi Jones and Liam Brooks. Once again Jimmy Maddision had already wrapped up the 19t Championship and decided not to run at this event but this left Jimmy in 1st, Jonny 2nd and Welsh Wizard Dewi 3rd after a season long battle for the Championship.
In the 27t class Rob ‘Bobby’ West took victory at the race and also secured a fine Championship win with his Mi3 closely followed by Andrew Twigger and Lee Price also with Mi3’s.
