Team BCM Clean Up In Wagin
At the recent WA Dirt Kart Titles in Wagin, the high profile Team BCM had a day out, running 9 karts in 7 classes. This family outfit was at the top of the tree all weekend and had others chasing them.
The 4 member team consisting of brothers Bryden (20), Joe (15), Aaron (14), Nathan (11) are a formidable force at any event they attend & that is evident with with 21 state & national plates in 14 months.
The Team rocked into Wagin hoping the past 12 months of traveling away racing would pay off with experience & race fitness.
Bryden Chalmers ran 4 classes this weekend KT Twins, 100 Opens, 125 heavy, KT Mediums, he finished the weekend with a 2nd in 125 heavy, 2nd place in 100 Opens, 4th in the KT Twin class & 15th in KT Mediums.
"Smokin" Joe Chalmers raced for a full house at this title event a dominating 1st place finish in KT Lights and backed that up with another 1st place in the J Open class, he came with a plan and executed it to perfection.
Brother number 3 Aaron Chalmers also raced in KT Lights with a 6th place finish with a DNF, and after siting the Viper on pole Aaron finished the weekend with a second place in J Opens behind his older brother.
The youngest member of Team BCM young "Mongo" Nathan Chalmers raced in the J Light class, after a DNF he was to start the final in P4, he brought the WA retic/Boatland #23 home in Second to finish 4th overall, but after tech at the end of the event where unfortunelaty a junior racer through no fault of his own had a motor deem illegal, at that point Nathan was credited with 3rd place but a very proud dad told me today in his speech Nathan said the following "Last thing i want to say is, i really shouldnt be up here, my good friend Late should be here instead of me"
This powerhouse team wont rest on its current success, they aim to spend the off season developing, practicing & getting ready for another assault on the Australian Dirt Kart Calender and will again base them selves in SA for the early blue ribbon event season, brief stint in WA before heading north to Alice Springs for the month of madness.
