Hello everybody, we had 14 determined slot car stalwarts turn up for the latest round of the 2017 season and the first class raced was NSR Historic Nascars. This was followed by the Ninco GT Enduro round and we again saw some extremely close racing and some major incidents throughout the field in both classes. The enduro round turned out to be a ripper with the top three place finishers on the same lap after 24 minutes of racing, incredible.
NSR HISTORIC LEMANS:
The A Main was again a very tight affair this time between Nic, Chris Daryl and Matt with the wheel of fortune turning in Nic’s favour this time, although he did enjoy a small speed advantage over the rest of the field. Chris finished a solid second with Daryl finishing third after a couple of de-slots. Matt rounded out the top four after coming off second best in a couple of racing incidents. Simon also has another good drive to finish fifth after just missing out on the A Main. Full race results can be viewed at the top of the page.
HALF TIME BREAK:
Syd kindly put and some very tasty pies and sausage rolls which were very much appreciated by a multitude of hungry racers. Congratulation to this rounds raffle winners who won various sets of MJK tyres.
The Ninco enduro round turned out to be a real cracker with Peter H winning after a superb drive with his new Gulf Mosler. Daryl finished a very close second after another stellar drive with his special home produced tyres provided him with superb grip levels. Matt put in another solid drive to finish a credible third, whilst Chris finished a distant fourth after suffering from some bad handling issues. Nic and Steven also had a close tussle with Nic finishing fifth half a lap ahead of Steven by the race end. The full race results can be viewed at the top of the page.
NOTABLE EVENTS ON THE NIGHT:
Congratulations to Nic on his solid win in the NSR Lemans class. Although the opposition has closed the gap on him, he still appears to have a small edge in this category. Congrats also to Peter H who put in a stonking drive to just beat Daryl in the Ninco GT enduro. The fact that Peter H, Daryl and Matt all finished on the same lap is a testament to how close the racing in this club has become.
Please feel free to comment on any relevant issues as every body’s opinions counts in this club and it is good to hear other people’s opinions from time to time.
The next race meeting will be held on Saturday May 27th 2017 and involve SCX Pro Nascar and Ninco GT. It should be another riveting round of racing and I am really looking forward to it.
