XRAY wins 3 classes at the EWS R4! The fourth round of the popular Essex Winter Series was once again held in Thundersley, near Southend, in the UK. The race saw a big field of drivers racing in 4 different classes. The XRAY UK team was in full force and looking competitive in each category.

I was able to take the TQ position in the TC modified class after winning 3 rounds. Harley Eldridge lined up 2nd on the grid after TQing the first round of qualifying! Kyle Branson started from the 4th spot. In the final, I was able to pull a gap early on to win the race from tone-to-tone. Behind, some drama unfolded with several racing incidents. In the end, Kyle managed to snatch the 3rd and final podium spot! XRAY had a total of 6 out of 11 cars in the A-main final!
