Firstly a fine night for racing.
Secondly a good crowd turned out to race and spectate
Thirdly a few new faces
What more could you want.
Well 2 heats of 21.5, 2 heats of 13.5 and a small mod heat.
21.5. Quite a few new faces in this class and some super racing, also a name change apparently while I have been away (now TC3)- 3 guys in 16 lap territory and 4 or 5 in 15 laps and the rest in 14. I managed 15 laps but have to say either the pace is up in this class or the 3 months layoff I’ve had has slowed me down a lot, Brad Palmer managed to come home on top over Robert and Jay. I was languishing back in 6th behind all the hot shoes but happy to be in the A final – more practice required. Back in the B final Wayne (I’ve got a new car) Sutton was heard to say he’d had the best race of his RC career.
13.5 (TC2) Keith continues on as top of the pops in this class, hotly pursued by Terry, Michael, Duncan etc. Racing looked pretty good and pretty clean from what I saw.
Mod (TC1) Only a small group and won by Corey. I was impressed by the performance of Team Argo Supremo Karl, as a novice in mod he drove some impressive lines, be good to see him keep at it.
F1 (still F1). Corey and Noel were the leaders of the F1 brigade, Michael Belby looked good in his first F1 appearance. ( I had an F1 with me but couldn’t raise the energy to run two classes on the night.
A good night, it was good to be back.
In the announcements time Shane reminded the drivers of the need to make sure they are running all legal stuff (hardware and software) in their cars with the State Titles coming up, if in doubt check or ask.
Maybe the club could look at changing the class names in the computer to read TC3, TC2, TC1 etc etc
Next meets Wednesday 5th August and Saturday 8th
