Tony Truman is UK Dirt Master 2012!August 23, 2012
Event Name: UK Dirt Masters 2012
Event Location: Clanfield, UK
Event Date(s): August 19, 2012 to August 19, 2012
The weekend of August 19 saw the return of the annual UK Dirt Masters held at Clanfield, UK. It was the first big event on their new revamped layout. The weather was very hot all day, which allowed for some great racing.
Team Associated/CML driver Tony Truman was in attendance with his RC8.2. In qualifying, Tony struggled to get to grips with the new layout but in the last round of qualifying set the fastest time of the day. Having struggled in the first few rounds getting used to the track, Tony lined up second on the grid for a 30-minute A Main in very warm temperatures.
Getting tangled up at the start dropped Tony back in the pack, but as the race went on, he worked his way back up the pack to take the lead at just over the halfway point. He remained there for the rest of the race to take the win and title of UK Dirt Master 2012.
Thanks to Tony Truman for this report.
