Went to Boondall early for a couple of hours, the usual fun with the Vintage crew – just like in vintage days the Team Associated Worlds car rules the 2wd scene out there (although I wouldn’t mind having a good Cougar 2000 or Fireblade to test out against them. The Holiday Buggy still rules in the “brings smiles to my face” class.
Had to leave there earlier than planned as I wanted to be home by 11.30 to watch the golf on TV from 11.30 – by the way if you want to follow along then it’s on at 11.30 today and Matt Guyatt our ActionRC Team golfer is just 4 shots off the lead going into the last day – c’mon Matt. If I can figure out how to I’ll attach a little TV grab from yesterday which typifies Matt and his approach to spreading the joy.
Got to Bayside later than usual but still in plenty of time for the start.
An eventful night, probably more dnf’s than I remember for a long time both for me and others, but the racing was still good. I managed to win both finals in 21.5 from Steve and then Wayne.
Was good to see two full heats in 13.5 this week, the boys had to work to make the A final and the B final guys were just as competitive in their finals as though they were fighting for the A great to see. I think Terry won the night with two seconds in the A’s (Mel and Cooper had firsts but lower placings in the other leg)
Was also good to see a good strong entry in mod, not sure who won that – might have been Corey (TQ) but I think he might have failed to finish one of them so you’ll have to wait till the results come out. Anthony was running the Schuie and was on target for a 19 lapper till a little bobble late in the 2nd qualifier dropped him back a bit. He suffered a couple of gremlins in the finals as well.
All in all a pretty good night, I think they announced that the Bayside Cup will be held on 20th Dec. so don’t miss that – the last biggie for the year.
