Hello everybody, we had 18 determined racers turn up for the latest round of the 2017 season and the first class raced was NSR Classic Lemans. This was raced in the clockwise direction and was followed by Ninco GT which was raced in the traditional anti clockwide direction. We again saw some very close racing throughout the field in both classes.
NSR CLASSIC LEMANS:
Racing was very tight again in this superb slot car class. The A Main was a really hard fought affair with both Matt and Chris finishing on the same points. However Matt won by posting the fastest time of 6.271. Nic finished a solid third whilst Peter H rounded out the top four. 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. Congratulation to this rounds raffle winners who won various set of MJK tyres.
The Ninco GT round was a highly competitive affair with the top seven drivers all having seriously competitive cars. Consequently all were in with a realistic chance of taking the major honours. Syd actually posted the fastest time with a 6.011. In the end Nic prevailed by winning the A Main with 53 points, Steven was a close second with 50 points after a solid drive, whilst Chris was third with 48 points. Matt rounded out the top four with 45 points. The overall result could have been very different had some competitors not been involved in racing incidents. The full race results can be viewed at the top of the page.
NOTABLE EVENTS ON THE NIGHT:
Congratulations to Matt who survived a big scare from Chris in the NSR Lemans race. He is the ice man a really knows how to win a round. Likewise Nic put in another solid performance to win the Ninco GT round after some serious competition and was all the more impressive since he suffered from hand throttle issues. These two series look like going down to the wire with many competitors having seriously good cars to run.
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 Mar 18th 2017 and involve Ninco GT and SCX Nascar. We should again see some more very close racing, I am really looking forward to it.
