May 12th 2022

Despite the absence of Kev through illness we had a bumper turnout of 10 drivers for 1/32 GP12 saloon. A welcome return of George after too long an absence but he soon showed that he remembered how to get around better than his dad. First visit for Ben who quickly learned the track and would probably have made the A final if it hadn't been for a shortage of tyres. Ian got the better of Geoff in the two man C final. Ben showed how quick he could be to win the B final from Corky, Nick and George. Chris had been breaking track records in the heats but chose the wrong tyres for the final and Keith took the overall win from Chris with Bob third and Woody having too many offs.


Unfortunately RC data is not available for tonight.

May 5th Formula 2

6 drivers tonight.... and plenty of Personal Best as this was only the 2nd time we have run F2 with reliable timing. To make sure we had 3 marshals we ran each heat with 3 drivers and missed out Orange lane, this doesn't matter too much as the best 2 segments count for qualy. Chris maintains his good form setting new records on Blue and Purple lanes and a new best 2 total. 2nd spot went to Corky (he abandoned his experimental aerodynamics from last time !!) but he was some 8 laps or so back.

The first move up final was between Geoff and Kev and Kev took this comfortably to move up to the B with Bob and Nick. In this one, Nick hardly got off the line as his gears stripped almost immediately. Strangely he reckons the armature stack had moved, making the gears out of mesh !!! This meant only Bob and Kev were competing for a place in the A. Bob proved a bit quicker than Kev and ran out the winner by a couple of laps.
Chris continued his good form to win the A from Bob and then Corky in 3rd.

As we finished quite early we decided to have our post race refreshment at the New Inn for a change 🍻

April 28th 2022

6 drivers tonight.... Chris TQ'ed with a new record total of 18.53 with Woody 2nd and Bob 3rd, both also beating the previous record total. These 3 made up the A final with Corky, Kev and Geoff making up the B.

The B was a bit of a procession with the 3 drivers at diferent pace. Corky was an easy winner finishing on 208.77, he was 17 laps or so ahead of Kev and Geoff was a further 15 laps behind Kev.
In the A there were a couple of disasters that probably affected the result. Chris was the early leader but a slipping gear half way through saw him lose probably 12 laps or so fixing it. At half way it was Bob with a 4 lap lead over Woody with Chris on a catch up mission lapping the quickest. Then disaster for Woody in the 3rd. A big shunt on the back straight and his car went no further, a suspected bent can seizing up the motor. This left Bob with a comfortable run in for the win and a fast finishing Chris took 2nd, despite his problem.
