Event Name: 2013 BRCA Touring Car Championship Rd. 4
Event Location: Aldershot, UK
Event Date(s): August 24, 2013 to August 25, 2013
Round four of the 2013 BRCA Touring Car Championship visited the Aldershot circuit 40 miles southwest of London. With two races remaining, AE/Reedy factory driver Olly Jefferies was looking to keep his title hopes alive with a strong finish.
Saturday saw mixed weather conditions which proved challenging in terms of tire choice and car setup. In the Super Touring class, Olly Jefferies tackled the difficult conditions to secure the pole position with his Reedy-powered TC6.1 WC. Championship rivals Chris Grainger and Elliot Harper lined up second and fourth respectively in the A final.
Sunday's finals saw Olly take the win in A1 ahead of Chris Grainger to start the day off right. Problems in A2 forced Olly to retire after six laps, which allowed Elliot Harper to take the win with Grainger once again in second place. In A3, Olly and Chris broke away from the pack early on and settled things among themselves. Chris eventually got by to take the win with Olly finishing second. However, Olly's finishes in A1 and A3 were enough to give him the overall win and maximum points for the round.
With Olly's win, the BRCA Super Touring championship will be determined at the fifth and final round at Mendip in September.
