The first round of the prestigious Silverstone Winter Series attracted 92 entries in the premier 2WD buggy class, and it was new Schumacher driver Dave Poulter who unexpectedly set TQ. Dave has shot up the rankings since he joined the team, and he was joined at the front of the grid by team mates Simon Moss and Nathan Waters with their Cougar KF’s.

Dave led for most of the exciting final but a small mistake near the end allowed Nathan Waters to dive through the gap to take the win with Greg Williams in 2nd and Dave Poulter in 3rd, Kev Lee 4th, and Simon Moss 5th. Drivers travelled from all over the UK to the excellent indoor astroturf venue. Many thanks to the Silverstone club members who put on a great event.
