WASCRG RACE MEETING HELD ON SATURDAY 18-2-17

NSR Lemans race sheet 18-2-17Pioneer race sheet 18-2-17

Racing got away at 6;30 pm on Saturday Night with Pioneer Muscle cars run first. The racing was fast and furious with a few offs and a few wayward wheels still causing a few issues for some. Careful maintenance and a little time spent can save a lot of anguish I have found. I will also make available a loan car that has been “sorted out” on the night for anybody that has issues during racing! The usual suspects were at the top of the pile at the end of racing. Congratulations to you! Welcome to another Peter who will be joining us for racing now. Not a bad effort making it into the B Main on his first outing!

Half time food was the usual sausage, onions and buns. The raffle was won by yours truly, followed by Lee and ?. We had a vote on the direction change for this class and it was a unanimous decision to run this class in the opposite direction for the entire season. We will obviously be running in both directions for the endurance night!

The second half of the night got under way with the NSR Classic Lemans. This is the first time we have run these cars with the MJK tyres and to be honest I don’t think they have made any difference to the times. Admittedly the times were slower but we were running in the opposite direction. All in all a good nights racing! See you all next fortnight for the NSR Classic Lemans and the Ninco GT.

Slot it Clockwise Enduro 4-2-17

Hi All. We had 17 eager racers turn up on Saturday Night for the Slotit Lemans Endurance Race and the 1st race of the Pioneer American Muscle Cars. We had Clive Spreadbury and his son, Jason, ( Scalexworld South Australia) join us for the first half of the evening where they both competed in the Slot it race. I think Clive was suitably impressed with the standard of racing and the facilities of WASCRG! We also had a new starter, Lee, who also enjoyed the nights racing. Considering we were missing a few regulars the racing was rather frantic. Daryl, Simon, Claire and Steven were missing from the racing which gave us some breathing space as far as time went. Even so we didn’t finish to near on midnight.

The first event of the night was the Slotit ( in reverse) and was some rather exciting racing to be had. Nick, usually “King of the Reverse Direction”, was pipped at the post by the ever consistent Matt, even though Nick was faster by nearly a 1/10 of a second he wasn’t as consistent as Matt. Welldone to Micky, who moved up a few notches to get into third position. After running in the opposite direction the track was returned to the normal direction and the class was run again with similar results. Matt again proved why he won this class last year and why he will be the one to beat again, Nick came 2nd followed by Mickey 3rd.! During the race we stopped for a refreshment break and we all enjoyed some barbequed sausages and onions followed by cake to celebrate Clive and Simon’s birthday! ( Sorry Simon we didnt save you any! LOL) We held the usual raffle and we had 1st Mickey 2nd Stewart  and 3rd Ron

After the Slotit race we lost our visitors, Clive and Jason, and Chris and Mike. We ran the Pioneer class for the first time at WASCRG. Apart from some niggling issues with rims coming off, due to poor preparation more than anything else, they exceeded my expectations for lap times and consistency. Nick and Peter both proved hard to beat with Matt coming in a close 3rd. I on the other hand was unlucky not to do better with the said issues costing me a couple of places! Fastest car with the slowest pit crew! Clive found some form with his car to make it all the way through the B Main and be beaten for a place in the A Main by yours truly! Well done Clive.

The next night will be the 21st of February with the Pioneer Muscle Cars and the NSR Classic Lemans so dont forget to change your tyres to MJK tyres otherwise you will not be able to run your car. Cheers Syd

Hello everybody, we had an impressive 16 determined racers turn up for round two of the 2017 season and the two classes raced were SCX Nascar In an enduro format and Slot it Lemans. Unfortunately due to a major computer meltdown we were unable to complete the Slot it Lemans round.  This will now be re-scheduled and run at a future date.

SCX NASCAR:

Racing was very close in stage one of the enduro round with only a few sectors separating Nic and Chris with Daryl not far behind either.  However once we raced in the reverse direction Nic again showed everyone a clean pair of heels to win the event easily. He is still very much the endurance King and drives the track in clockwise directions much better than anyone else. The final top four results were 1st Nic, 2nd Chris, 3rd Daryl and 4th Peter H. Nic also posted the fastest time of the night with a 6.629. Full race results can be viewed at the top of the page.

HALF TIME BREAK:

Syd again put on a really tasty sausage sizzle which was enjoyed by everybody. Thanks again Syd for another fine effort which is much appreciated by everyone. The new first, second and third format for the raffle was held and won this time by Peter H, Clare and ………….. respectively, who all won various sets of tyres, so congratulations to you all on your wins.

SLOT IT LEMANS:

The Slot it Lemans round was Cancelled, due to a computer program error.

 

NOTABLE EVENTS ON THE NIGHT:

Congratulations to Nic on another stellar performance in the SCX Pro Nascar Endurance round. Whilst the first leg was a pretty close affair he pulled away from the rest of the field in the clockwise direction to take an easy win. Personally I am looking forward to the future enduro rounds involving Slot it Lemans and NSR Classic Lemans, that are more suited to endurance type racing.

Please feel free to comment on any relevant issues as every body’s opinions count in this club and it would be nice to hear other people’s opinions from time to time.

NEXT MEETING:

The next race meeting will be held on Saturday Feb 4th 2017 and involve Slot it Lemans and the new Pioneer muscle cars.  We should again see some more very close racing, I am really looking forward to it.

Cheers,

Chris.

WASCRG RACE MEETING HELD ON SAT 7TH JANUARY 2017

 

ninco-gt-sheet-7-1-17

Hello everybody, we had 15 enthusiastic racers turn up for round one of 2017 season and the two classes raced were SCX Nascar and Ninco GT.  It turned out to be a very entertaining evening with some really close racing and some big mistakes under pressure in the finals from various competitors. This all bodes well for a very interesting rest of the series.

SCX NASCAR:

Racing was a fierce affair in the SCX Nascar class with close racing throughout both the heats and the mains events. Nic managed to win the A Main from a consistent Peter H. Chris finished third after being involved in a couple of accidents and Syd rounded out the top four. Full race results can be viewed at the top of the page.

HALF TIME BREAK:

We all enjoyed a rather tasty sausage sizzle at half time thanks to yet another fine effort from Syd which was much appreciated by everyone. The new first, second and third format for the raffle was held and won by John, Clive and Ron respectively, who all won various sets of tyres, so congratulations to you all on your wins.

NINCO GT:

This class also produced some very close racing throughout the heats and Main race events due to the reduced voltage. The A Main was won by Matt after a superb driving performance that saw him win 8 races in a row coming from the B Main to take the major honours. Steven had a great race to finish second with the fastest time of the night at 6.055.  Syd was a solid third with Nic rounding out the top four. Full race results can be viewed at the top of this page.

 

NOTABLE EVENTS ON THE NIGHT:

Congratulations to both Nic and Matt on their respective hard earned A Main wins. Nic drove very consistently to win the SCX Nacar A Main, whilst others made mistakes under pressure. Matt put in a superb driving performance to win both the A and B Main Ninco GT races and will take some beating in futures events. Steven also showed amazing speed with his Mosler to set the fastest time of the night at 6.055. Overall not a bad start to season one of 2017, stay tuned for further developments.

Please feel free to comment on any relevant issues as every body’s opinions count in this club and it would be nice to hear other people’s opinions from time to time.

NEXT MEETING:

The next race meeting will be held on Saturday Jan 30th 2016 and involve SCX Nascar and Slot it Lemans and we should see some more very close racing, I am really looking forward to it.

Cheers,

Chris.

We had a ­­­11 racers turn up for the final rounds of the Revell Historic Nascar  championship and the  V8 Supercars championship, other club member were absent due to personal commitments. On the night we saw some really tight and exciting racing in both classes.

HALF TIME BREAK:

We all enjoyed some really tasty sausage rolls and party pies  at half time break, thanks again Syd for another great effort in feeding some rather hungry racers. Later in the evening Claire turned up with a rather nice Chocolate cake to celebrate Peter Hagarty’s birthday which was quickly devoured, so thanks for that Claire.

V8 SUPERCARS:

This was a really terrific round of racing with some really close races from the A Main through to the C Main. The A Main saw a terrific battle between Matt and Peter H with Matt winning the round from a very fast Peter H. Chris finished third a little off the pace due to a tight gear mesh and Peter W was a very credible fourth. Full race results can be viewed at the top of the page.

 

NOTABLE EVENTS ON THE NIGHT:

We saw the completion of the final two series on the night. The first being Revell Historic Nascar and second V8 Supercars. Congratulations to the following trophy place getters, in the Revell Historic NASCAR first place went to Matt with a total of 252 points.  Peter H was second with 240 points and Syd rounded out the top three with 227 points.

In the V8 Supercars championship Matt finished first with 251 points, Peter H was second with 241 points and in absolute sensation Chris jumped Daryl to finish third with 228 points.
