Default Drop Inn racing

Great night racing last night, very close, really enjoyed it. Hope to head up again in a few weeks, the almost 2 hr drive home is the only downer!

Hi Ian,
Where was the racing at last night? Drop In at Craigavon?
I thought it was only on Wednesday nights. ??

Im gutted if I missed a potential race opportunity - there are so few around that I can actually get to.
Tuesdays are good for me, so if its a regular thing Im there!

(P.S. you coming up to BADMCC on 5th June? Should be a good one again!)

Sorry for the confusion it was Wednesday night. 5th June is the first 2 wd national round in Dublin. You should try and get to that if you can. AFAIK there will be a few travelling down from either fivemiletown or craigavon.

Good to see u at DIR - the Cougar was impressive against the Losi's that seem to breeding at the club! Glad that Duffys Circus next door didn't prevent us racing!

I see the 22 invasion is on all fronts! I also see a few bent alloy chassis in DIR's future - it was always a testing venue on durability. I suppose you're opening a B4 shelter for unwanted, abandoned B4s, Ed?

Hoping to get going again if some work opportunities come to fruition over the next week - I'll be in the vicinity again, and can afford the petrol....

It was my trusty old B4 that won the A final even with an old brushed motor. No timing advanced boosted new fangled technology.

Racing tonight at Craigavon Drop-In again.
Ed mentioned that there was a chance of an outdoor grass track, but looking at the weather I guess thats probably not happening tonight.
So indoor astro it is!

Anyone else going? Ian, Colin?

7pm start - my Cat will accept all challenges (and then smash into the wall and break as I fumble with the controls as per usual! )

Many have tried to shift our end wall but haven't seen it move too far yet! We'll see how the CAT gets on later - racing confirmed indoors, starting at 7pm.

Cheers Ed, looking forward to it.

...although the Cat, which is sitting on the table in front of me right now, seems to be regarding me with silent contempt

P.S. how long you reckon it takes to get from Belfast to you guys? Im thinking about 30 mins or so?
