Merlin Rocket Championship - Day 3

 
Black Flag halts Birrell and Brearey progress to title

With runaway leaders Christian Birrell and Sam Brearey reduced to the sidelines, Andy Davis and Alex Warren won Race 5, with Chris Gould and Chris Kilsby second and Roger Gilbert and James Stewart third.

This left Birrell and Brearey with a reduced, seven point lead ahead of Gilbert and Stewart, with the Calverts in third place.

The win for Davis and Warren moved them into fourth place, tied on points with Chris Jennings and Oli Wells (also BFD for this race) and Jon Turner and Richard Parslow in sixth.

The forecast for Wednesday looks like more of the same and with two races scheduled.
