We had 18 enthusiastic racers turn up for the latest Easter club round of high intensity racing. The classes involved where SCX NASCAR and NSR LEMANS with the Scx Nascar being run in the endurance format. They both again provided some very exciting and close racing, both throughout the heats and mains in the NSR Lemans and in the SCX Nascar endurance round in particular.
NSR HISTORIC LEMANS:
Racing was once again super close throughout the field in both heats and mains with some races a decided by very close margins. Both the A and B mains were closely fought affairs with Nic showing superior pace to everyone else with a dominating race win the A Main. Matt finished second with a solid drive and Chris was a lucky third with Syd rounding out the top four. Full race results can be viewed at the top of the page.
HALF TIME BREAK:
We all enjoyed some really tasty pies and sausage rolls at half time break, thanks again Syd for another great effort, which I know is much appreciated by everyone. The raffle was held and won by Daryl who got a really nice NSR Corvette, so congratulations to you on your win.
SCX PRO NASCAR:
The SCX Pro Nascar turned out to be one of closest and greatest races we have ever held. Incredibly Syd won from Nic by just one segment after eight lanes of hard fought racing and also Chris beat Daryl by just one segment to finish third. The top four combined totals read like this; Syd first with 204.714, Nic second with 204.667, Chris third 202.810 and Daryl fourth with 202.715. Incredible results that were achieved as a result of the reduced voltage, which allowed for the closest overall racing we have seen to date. Full race results can be viewed at the top of this page.
NOTABLE EVENTS ON THE NIGHT:
Congratulations to Syd on a stellar drive in the SCX Nascar to achieve arguably his finest ever victory by just pipping a very fast finishing Nic for first place. To think that there was only one segment difference between first and second is astonishing. Congratulations also Nic on another dominant performance in the NSR Lemans class I think that you have that championship well and truly sown up.
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.
The next race meeting will be held on Saturday Apr 9th 2016 and involve Slot it lemans and NSR Lemans. Should be another great night’s racing I am really looking forward to it.
