Default Ben Jemison takes his first regional win - Jarrow BRCA 4WD regional

oOple danceteam member Ben Jemison has won his first ever North East regional A Final which was held at the Jarrow track. This is the first time that Ben has qualified in the A final at an outdoor event, and he raced well against the likes of Ben Riley, Richard Lowe, Tom Cockerill and Adam Skelding - all F1 Drivers.



Ben qualified 2nd in the A final but lead the way around the track, finishing in first place with Richard Lowe 4 seconds behind, and about half a lap ahead of the rest of the field.

Ben used the Atomic Carbon S4 conversion for the JConcepts Bj4we. LRP TC brushless ESC, Novak 5.5 sintered motor, EP4600 08 cells. Ben used Schumacher yellow mini spikes for the final.

Bens car is adorned with 'PIESPEED Race Decalsby oOple' custom decals - and Ben said this after his win: "it was those stickers. Im sure of it " -Whatever the truth,Well done to Ben, and good luck for a successful season, The oOple DanceTeam - Ben Jemison, James Helliwell, Stu Evans, Graham North, Jim Dixon, Tom Cockerill - & Team oOple!
