Peerless Ruben Boutens Storms To Third BRKC Title

A truly remarkable performance from reigning BRKC champion Ruben Boutens saw him clinch his third British title at Formula Fast in Milton Keynes today.

Boutens was formidable during the heats phase of the competition, having won each of his races and broken the lap record. However, things didn’t go entirely to plan in the Super Pole qualifying session for the final with 2015 runner up Stefan Verhofste taking first place on the grid with Boutens a close second.

Verhofste’s lead was short during the Grand Final itself, with Boutens delivering his customary overtaking manouvre into the main hairpin – never to be challenged again during the race – with Lewis Manley also making his way past Verhofste later in the race.

Having now won three BRKC’s in succession, Ruben Boutens is the most successful driver in BRKC history. Boutens also lowered his own lap record at the Formula Fast circuit during the Grand Final with a 31.5 second lap.

The Kam Ho Memorial award went to Michael Weddell, and the Genevieve Reason ‘Most Determined Driver’ trophy was claimed by Polish driver and fourth placed finisher Matt Bartsch.

In The Thick Of It

It’s Saturday evening, and today’s opening foray of races (actually, just over half the heats) have now finished, with another full day still to go.

There was incredible excitement and drama throughout, with jaw-dropping action, few near-misses and some spills – and that was just the pizza.

Full race reports will be available after the event, but for now, here are some useful links to today’s key info:

Thanks to all for a great day’s racing, see you tomorrow.
