View Full Version : Lowe and Sleigh dominate Supercup

15-03-2009, 11:37 PM
March 15th saw the return of the Annual 'Batley Supercup' held at the indoor Batley venue. Racing got underway around 9am after an early start to practice.
Richard Lowe dominated 4WD and Truck classes - winning all qualifiers and both finals. Richard couldn't seem to get it together in 2WD however and after an early challenge by Steve Lawson, it was Mid West driver Phil Sleigh who dominated the last three rounds of qualifying - going on to win the final in style.

ACE as always Jimmy :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Apart from:

No picture of the top 3 in trucks, or report on how I held off those fast guys.... :woot:
The fact that my truck is a Losi not an AE warrior....
You didn't mention SOMEONE STOLE MY TRUCK TROPHY! :cry:

So, other than that, I'd say not a bed effort. Did your school reports always read "Must try harder."??? :confused::woot::confused::woot:

Only joking boss, we love ya. :wub
