Round 3&4 of the CIWC saw another dominating performance from Olly Jefferies as once again he took his Associated TC6.1 to clean sweep of qualifying runs and A final wins at the Chippenham Indoor Winter Championship, this time Olly had to fight off a class entry and some very on form team mates.

Another full entry saw a class field of drivers that included Chris Grainger, Phil Chambers and Ayrton Anderson, like Olly these national names were looking to get some carpet running prior to the BRCA winter national which takes place early in 2013.

Right from the start Olly dominated proceedings lapping nearly all the field in all three rounds of qualifying, Phil Chambers was the only driver to come close to Olly and he lined up second for the A final eight seconds off Ollyís pace. Olly was not the only Associated driver going well, Ollyís team mate and pit man Chris Gunter would line up forth just behind Chris Granger with Associated academy graduate Kyle Gardener going well in fifth making it three TC6.1ís in the top five

Ben Putt made the long trip down for the meeting but this was his first run on carpet this season and was happy to get in some solid runs with his TC6.1, Ben improved his times during the day but suffered from a DNF in round one which put him on the back foot early on.
