Apologies for making the final round of qualifying a little more "interesting" than usual. One of my rear shocks failed, dumping its oil on the track. A little shock oil goes a long way on the slippy floor!
That was your doing was it!

I thought you got on well - a new car, new club etc.

Yep, guilty as charged, sorry . Although I didn't actually assemble the shocks myself (Only picked the car up on Sunday.

I was fairly pleased with how I got on. I've only ever ran a 4WD Buggy for 1 heat before (5 mins), so I wasn't really expecting a lot.
The surface takes a bit of getting used to aswell!

See you all soon. Probably not next week, but the week after.

Yep.

Sad about that. I've just rebuild my shocks, all ready to go.

See you next week though.

I think a few people are popping up to Telford's club on wednesday Chris. I'm still undecided myself and keeping my fingers crossed that my 2wd shell will be back from paint so I can use that there.

Well done on your FTD last night Michael!

Who uploads the results onto the Ludlow club website? They are very efficient! Top job.

Thanks Chris, Just a shame the final didn't go to plan!

Dave uploads the results, he's pretty quick especially as he lives Stourport way somewhere!

The vid of the final is up on youtube just search for 75mdb (or click on the link to an older vid in my sig).

Hello!

A couple of weeks ago, it was mentioned that this week would be a team event? Does anyone know if the format of this has been decided? Do I need to prepare anything in particular for this? Or can I just turn up and race?

Thanks,

Chris

Just turn up and race, but you will need a mounting hole for handout pt's if you don't already have one.

As I understand it each team is going to be given one handout pt for the night and it has to be changed over from one car to the next as each driver + car swap over.

Ahh ok. I guess that means that each team would have at least one higher skilled driver, and one lower skilled. Are there teams of 2 drivers then?

Teams of four I think.

One driving, one marshalling, one ready to drive and one to swap transponders over from the one car to the next F1 style!

The teams will be picked so that each teams ability level is mixed, one driver from each of our normal heats or so.

We are hoping for 20 drivers to turn up to make 5 teams of 4. If they don't then we might run 6 teams of 3 or 4 teams of 4. Just need to see how many turn up.

Team captains? Will be myself, wez, parry, vinny and Goode (assuming all turn up).
The rest of the teams (as luke says) will be 1 driver from his/her usual heat at random.

1 handout transponder per team so all cars will need some method of mounting this to the car. PT's can be left in.

What a great night!

The team race was a great success. A lot of fun for everyone. Certainly having a team marshall who only marshalled your team car made things funny. We've never seen some people run so fast!

Certainly close after 2hrs with only 2 laps in it between 1st and 2nd. Massive panic when a turnbuckle popped off the lead car with 90 seconds to go and the turnbuckle wasn't attached to the car anymore!

Great to see so many people around the track and getting involved. We'll run another no doubt before we return outdoors.

Video's and results will be online soon.
