Default OOPLE OFF ROAD OPEN SERIES 2015 REPORT

[IMG][/IMG]

Oooos REPORT 2015

Jimmy wrote the Bury report and sadly its been left unfinished on his laptop.

If we ever recover it we will add it to this report.......


…….. And then a Bright Orange Light went out suddenly and we were plunged into Darkness.

ROUND TWO – DUNFERMLINE – SCOTLAND – 6th/7th JUNE 2015

The oOple Team convened quickly and decided that we had to carry on the 2015 Series in Jimmy’s honour so it was with heavy hearts that we headed North to Scotland and specifically the Dunfermline Model Car Club.

It had always been an aim of Jimmy and the team to spread the oOple love as far and wide as possible and the Scottish round was hugely anticipated by all concerned, especially the beautiful weather we assumed would be evident for the weekend!

[IMG][/IMG]

The Dunfermline track is strangely situated about half a mile through a forest right next to a dual carriageway and is a purpose built GRASS track with many jumps, dips, hollows and an enormous mound two thirds down the straight in front of the rostrum.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

Derek Kerr was waiting to greet us and his team had obviously spent loads of time preparing the track as the grass was nice and short and the layout was marked out with big shipping ropes ( SHIPPING not SKIPPING!)

There were acres of pitting space in the field behind the track and around four handy shipping containers for the oOple crew to pit in and one for Mike Parker at Number 5 R/C to set up shop.

As a few of the regulars started to gather on the Friday evening to check out the track, tales of a strange metal beast shedding sparks along the Scottish Highways were being passed around? What could it possibly be?

Just as we were enjoying the peace and tranquillity of rural Scotland the spark spitting beast could be heard grinding its way towards us from the forest in the distance.

Small children ran and hid, women burst into tears as the grinding got nearer and nearer and then around the corner over the hill came Chris and James Burgess from Scouseland pulling their not very new caravan with the remnants of an exploded tyre running on a steel rim.

They had towed the caravan for around 10 miles on the rim and it was fair to say it looked knackered.

Not knackered enough for Steve Lawson (F1 Stock Car mechanic) and Ben Jemison (world renowned alloy wheel straighter) to attempt a fix with one of the track marking tyres lying around the pit area.

Steve threw the new/very old and green tyre onto the rim with the help of his magic juice (Fairy Liquid) and it was at that point that they realised there was no tyre valve, strangely it hadn’t managed to hold on over the ten mile rim destroying journey.

What it does show is the oOple spirit alive and well and racers will do anything to help fellow racers out!

[IMG][/IMG]

At Dunfermline we had 36 2WD, 39 4WD and 6 RC10 drivers competing for honours. I would say the largest turnout of drivers in Scotland for a 1/10 Off Road Electric meeting in quite a few years.

QUALIFYING 2WD


In 2WD it was all about three drivers, Ben Jemison, Paul Crompton and local hero Allan O’Brien.

Over five rounds of qualifying, Ben took Rounds one and three, Allan took a first in Round two and going into the final round Paul had a first in round four.

As the grass track wore out on the racing line the drivers had to continuously adapt their cars and for Paul Crompton it was pretty new territory as he had never really raced on grass before!

Round five on Sunday morning saw Paul take first place and with a faster time than Ben he had secured pole position in the A final with Ben in second and Allan in third.

Notable performances from Ian Kirkpatrick in fourth and Kenny Clarke in ninth put them amongst some familiar faces.

The top ten in 2WD would line up as follows for the A Final:

1 Paul Crompton 15/ 315.77 2 [(17) (2) (2) 1 1] 21.05
2 Ben Jemison 14/ 300.26 2 [1 (3) 1 (17) (3)] 21.45
3 Allan O'Brien 15/ 316.52 3 [(9) 1 (6) (37) 2] 21.10
4 Ian Kirkpatrick 14/ 306.37 6 [2 (10) 4 (8) (11)] 21.88
5 James Wilkinson 14/ 308.44 6 [(7) (4) 3 3 (4)] 22.03
6 Stephen Lawson 14/ 307.59 7 [(8) (6) (15) 2 5] 21.97
7 Richard Coates 14/ 318.76 9 [(5) (9) 5 4 (6)] 22.77
8 Lee Fraser 14/ 312.71 10 [(6) 5 (7) 5 (18)] 22.34
9 Kenny Clarke 14/ 316.51 11 [3 (8) (9) (10) 8] 22.61
10 Mike Parker 14/ 318.18 11 [4 (12) (14) (7) 7] 22.73



QUALIFYING 4WD

It was a similar story in 4WD with the same top three drivers, Ben, Paul and Allan fighting it out for pole position.

Allan O’Brien came out on top with three top scores, followed by Ben Jemison in second and Paul Crompton in third, Allan being the only driver in qualifying to make it onto 16 lap pace.

Local man Martin Wallace lined up fifth and then it was the battle of the veterans behind with Damian Whittle in sixth leading Chris Clarke, Steven Lawson and Matt Bateson all making the 4WD A final.

The top ten in the 4WD A final lined up as follows:

1 Allan O'Brien 16/ 318.13 2 [(35) (2) 1 (1) 1] 19.88
2 Ben Jemison 15/ 303.10 2 [1 1 (38) (28) (16)] 20.21
3 Paul Crompton 15/ 305.16 4 [(39) (34) 2 (13) 2] 20.34
4 Graham North 15/ 315.08 5 [2 (4) 3 (4) (5)] 21.01
5 Martin Wallace 15/ 318.33 5 [(8) 3 (4) 2 (10)] 21.22
6 Damian Whittle 15/ 318.64 7 [(6) (6) (5) 3 4] 21.24
7 Chris Clarke 15/ 317.74 8 [(10) 5 (10) (6) 3] 21.18
8 Ian Kirkpatrick 15/ 315.13 9 [3 (12) (8) (12) 6] 21.01
9 Stephen Lawson 15/ 320.30 11 [4 7 (11) (17) (9)] 21.35
10 Matthew Bateson 15/ 320.74 11 [5 (14) 6 (8) (8)] 21.38


QUALIFYING RC10 CLASSICS

[IMG][/IMG]

There was a strange battle in the RC10 class as stalwarts Damian Whittle and James Wilkinson were joined by a strangely darker haired slightly shorter grufty bearded version of Jim Dixon? As Graham North and Jim Dixon are the result of some weird experimental Siamese driver cloning from the early Eighties, it was the dark haired one that had turned up to race this weekend leaving his fairer twin to suffer at the hands of a rally driver somewhere darn sarf!

[IMG][/IMG]

As the RC10’s generally bounced their way around the grass undulations it was looking like a close fight for pole position between Graham, I mean Jim! and Damian. There was only one thing that could stop them and that was the introduction of a random factor------ in this case it was the carnage annihilator Oliver Kirkham!

Now its fair to say, young Oliver has not done much racing, in fact its fair to say he was operating on another plane of existence as the track he was following bore no resemblance to the one the rest of us were attempting to get round!

This resulted in many near misses and a few direct hits as every one and a half laps one tended to have to dodge the multi coloured RC10 driven at times the wrong way round the track or even just straight through the track!

Hey but who cares? He was having a ball and it certainly sharpened up your responses when you saw him coming!

A special mention here for Oliver’s dad, Colin, who brings his entire family, all 46 of them to each and every meeting, I’ve never heard him swear once, despite the amount of spare parts he has to fit in between each round! Seriously, Colin has supported the Series throughout and his enthusiasm for oOple is the reason we are here.

The RC10 drivers would line up like this for the A Final (there is only an A final so it makes you feel good!)

1 Damian Whittle 12/ 312.15 2 [(1) (2) 1 (2) 1] 26.01
2 Jim Dixon 13/ 325.30 3 [(2) 1 (3) (3) 2] 25.02
3 Chris Mitchell 12/ 315.87 3 [(4) (4) 2 1 (3)] 26.32
4 James Wilkinson 11/ 306.67 6 [3 3 (4) (4) (4)] 27.88
5 Colin Kirkham 10/ 314.85 10 [(5) (5) 5 (5) 5] 31.49
6 Oliver Kirkham 5/ 320.00 12 [(6) 6 6 (6) (6)] 64.00

In between the qualifying and the finals a short eulogy was conducted for Jimmy followed by a minute’s silence – not a dry eye in the house.

The guys from Scotland then had a great idea and all the participating drivers cars were used to spell out Jimmy’s name and a photo was taken to commemorate a legend. The picture has now been seen by well over 12500 people.

[IMG][/IMG]

CHODS to JIMMY!

They also had prepared a memorial wall on one of the containers which everyone signed and left messages on. Steady hands Mike Parker from Number 5 R/C drew a great FISTER R/C logo – shown here……

2WD FINALS

All the Finals were run over three legs and the winners were:

D Final – Winner – Ian Bellwood
C Final – Winner – John Harris
B Final – Winner – Stuart Evans

A Final – Leg 1

Paul Crompton lead the pack away with Ben Jemison giving chase, a mistake by Ben on lap two allowed Paul to gain a good gap. Ben then put in nine straight 21 second laps to consistently reel Paul in, with Paul making a mistake on lap 10 which brought Ben right back onto his tail. Paul however was having none of it and a 20.53 second lap followed by a mistake by Ben as he was charging hard so Paul win Leg One by only 1.4 seconds from Ben. Both drivers were using the Schumacher KF2.

A Final – Leg 2

The start was a little bit more chaotic this time, Paul Crompton suffering the worst with a first lap 10 seconds down on the rest of the field. Paul would make his way back to fourth and set a fastest lap of 20.40 seconds but that was his Leg 2 done and dusted.

The battle at the front was between Ben Jemison and Allan O’Brien, Ben held the lead with Allan right behind until Ben made a big error on lap ten, losing six seconds and handing Allan the lead which he never relinquished, just missing going through for 15 laps by under a second. Ben wound up second with Richard Coates bringing his car home in third.

A Final – Leg 3

So, all to play for, with one leg to go, Paul Crompton, Ben Jemison and Allan O’Brien could all win overall. Some very neat driving from the start showed the drivers running in order right up to lap 10 when it all went wrong for Ben, clipping the track and rolling allowing Allan through into second. Paul didn’t put a foot wrong and with consistent lapping was the only driver to go through for 15 laps and won the 2WD meeting outright. The battle was on behind with Ben throwing some big air over the jumps but ultimately he pushed too hard and even though Allan had a few scruffy laps towards the end Ben couldn’t quite make the difference up and came in third behind Allan.

4WD FINALS

All the finals were run over three legs and the winners were:

D Final – Winner – Dave Hannah
C Final – Winner – Colin McCaffrey
B Final – Winner – Jeff Steele

[IMG][/IMG]

A Final – Leg 1

Allan O’Brien led the field away with Ben Jemison and Paul Crompton in close company up until lap 4 when Allan had a small roll letting Ben and Paul through. Ben held the lead for two laps until a mistake let Paul through, Ben immediately getting back with Paul with Allan closing them both down in third. Ben then made a massive mistake on lap 12 losing over ten seconds whilst the marshals extricated him from the track markings but it effectively finished his run seeing him finish in sixth place. Paul was running consistently with Allan really pushing on, however even though Allan put in an 18.80 second lap on his last lap it was not enough as Paul had slipped through for 16 laps before the buzzer and he won the leg over Allan with Graham North finishing in third.

A Final – Leg 2

The top three charged away again at the front in regulation order, 1, 2, 3 with only Paul Crompton making a slight mistake on lap 4 losing him 3 seconds to Ben and Allan in front. On lap 10 Allan made a mistake letting Ben through into the lead and Paul was on them having put in a run of four 19 second laps, then all hell let loose!

The race came to a head on Lap 13 with Allan and Ben coming together to give Paul the chance to nip by which he duly did, with another screaming 19 second lap against Allan and Ben. Ben then had two more horrible laps as he pushed way too hard trying to catch up and had more mistakes leaving Paul to take the win again, sealing the meeting with a double victory. Allan duly came in second with Graham North picking up the pieces again in third overall.

A Final – Leg 3

As Paul Crompton had already won the meeting it was down to Ben Jemison, Allan O’Brien and Graham North to fight over the minor placings. Allan set off quickly and soon established a good lead putting in consistent 19 and 20 second laps. Ben unfortunately broke his car on lap 5 putting him out of contention and with the pressure off Paul he was seemingly seeing how quick he could push his car around the track although he was making a lot of mistakes meaning he finished well down the order.

The failure of two of the top three to capitalise on their grid positions saw Graham North come through from fourth to chase down Allan, Northy putting a big effort in and with a four second mistake on the last lap by Allan it was a very close run to the finish with Allan just pipping North by half a second over the line.

Behind the battle raged for third between veteran racers Chris Clarke and Damian Whittle, mistakes from both drivers seeing them swap places. A final mistake by Chris on the last lap saw Damian close right back in but it was to no avail with Chris crossing the line just 0.4 seconds ahead of Damian.

Paul Crompton won 4WD overall with his Schumacher K1 Aero.

A Final Overall Results:


1 3 Paul Crompton 2 [ 1 1 7 - 16/ 325.82 ] 20.36 0.00 (0)

RC10 FINALS

The RC10 finals were always going to be a close run thing as they all run the same motors and gearing so it basically comes down to driver skill, the bumpy track and whether or not you got nailed by Oliver Kirkham’s random car!

The highlight was Leg 1 whereby after five minutes of hard racing between Damian Whittle and Jim Dixon (Northy clone), it all came down to the last lap, last corner chicane onto the straight which saw Jim push Damian’s car over the line to finish the closest final yet, jus 0.05 seconds separating the two cars.

Leg 2 was run in a similar vane however the winning margin was massive………….
Some 1.2 seconds split Damian and Jim over the line this time proving the RC10’s promote the closest racing in R/C! It also gave Damian the overall win at Dunfermline!

Leg 3 saw local man Chris Mitchell win from Jim by 0.2 seconds with Damian coming home in third.

RC10 Final Overall Results:

1 1 Damian Whittle 2 [ 1 1 3 - 12/ 300.63 ] 25.05 0.00 (0)
2 3 Chris Mitchell 4 [ 4 3 1 - 12/ 301.94 ] 25.16 0.00 (0)
3 2 Jim Dixon 4 [ 2 2 2 - 12/ 300.68 ] 25.06 0.00 (0)
4 4 James Wilkinson 7 [ 3 4 4 - 12/ 316.75 ] 26.40 0.00 (0)
5 5 Colin Kirkham 10 [ 5 5 5 - 11/ 310.00 ] 28.18 0.00 (0)
6 6 Oliver Kirkham 12 [ 6 6 6 - 4/ 296.08 ] 74.02 0.00 (0)


Following the finals the trophies were awarded along with the raffle prizes being distributed – THANKS! – Propel R/C, HPi and oOple!

A great event was held at Dunfermline under difficult circumstances. The track presented a new challenge to a lot of drivers that are used to the now norm astro tracks and the way it held up to the abuse we gave it is testament to the team who put it together.

Thanks to Derek Kerr and his team!

On to Round Three……………………

ROUND THREE – MENDIP – WESTON SUPER MARE – 4th/5th JULY 2015

[IMG][/IMG]

July 4th saw our second trip down to sunny! Weston Super Mare to race at the purpose built Mendip Raceway venue.

The venue is best known for its longstanding onroad tarmac track which holds various boring car race meetings throughout the year, however following last years oOoos meeting on their unique Off Road track we just had to visit again!

The Off Road track is built on a natural slope bordering a main road and a railway line and has a tree stump in the middle just for that extra touch of randomness!

If there’s anything we like at oOple is randomness, the more tree stumps the better!

[IMG][/IMG]

Another big attraction of going to the Mendip track is the entertaining nightlife on offer in Weston Super Mare --- more of that later……..

Paul Morrissey and Andy Nancollis, supported by their track crew had put out a challenging layout which involved a lot of elevation changes which required a lot of concentration to get right. The new track markings looked ace and we were looking forward to qualifying.


At Mendip we had 58 2WD, 38 4WD and 8 RC10 drivers competing for honours.


QUALIFYING 2WD

Following his sabbatical at Dunfermline, Chris Evison travelled down to Mendip to build on his points haul from Round 1 at Bury. As Round 2 winner Paul Crompton and front runner Ben Jemison had elected to miss the delights of Mendip, Chris could’ve been forgiven for thinking he would having it all his own way………

[IMG][/IMG]

Up steps Martin Owen, local ace Schumacher driver and all round nice bloke to potentially spoil Chris’ day!

Martin took first blood in Round 1 followed closely by Chris in second, Jim Dixon putting himself in a competitive third.

However Chris was just playing himself in and went on to round off the remaining four qualifying runs by taking a win in all of them and securing Pole Position for the A Final.

In fact Chris and Martin (is that a reference to Coldplay?) were the only drivers to break the 15 lap barrier. Behind them, Jim couldn’t repeat his good run in the first round but still wound up a creditable seventh on the grid. Richard Coates wound up third overall after string a couple of second places together followed by local man Mark Field in fourth.

[IMG][/IMG]

The Top 10 in the A Final 2WD Lined up as Follows:

1 Chris Evison 15/ 316.20 2 [(2) (1) (1) 1 1] 21.08
2 Martin Owen 15/ 320.60 3 [1 (4) 2 (5) (3)] 21.37
3 Richard Coates 14/ 304.27 4 [(9) 2 (14) 2 (19)] 21.73
4 Mark Field 14/ 300.27 6 [(6) (5) 4 (10) 2] 21.45
5 Gavin Crolla 14/ 303.47 6 [(7) 3 3 (4) (7)] 21.68
6 Tom Knowles 14/ 308.17 7 [4 (7) (8) 3 (6)] 22.01
7 Jim Dixon 14/ 307.55 8 [3 (6) 5 (8) (8)] 21.97
8 Paul Crawford 14/ 303.84 10 [(22) (11) (22) 6 4] 21.70
9 Mike Parker 14/ 309.00 11 [5 (9) 6 (15) (14)] 22.07
10 Dan Osbourne 14/ 314.30 15 [8 (13) 7 (20) (13)] 22.45


QUALIFYING 4WD

In 4WD we saw a welcome return to old stager Craig Harris to the oOoos meeting. Martin Owen was also in the mix along with fellow local driver Paul Field.

Craig had a rocky start to the meeting only placing fourth after two rounds. It was Paul Field who stamped his authority on the meeting with two firsts in the early rounds and he was the man to beat.

Oople team member Graham North (Northy) had re-built his T-Tech Predator car from the 20th Century with newly moulded parts and was steadily getting faster and faster as qualifying went on. Gav Crolla had a good consistent run over the five rounds to wind up fourth overall just in front of fellow North Western driver and oOoos organiser Damian Whittle.

Graham FARTED! Jim shows his approval with a thumbs up - Stu CHOKES!

[IMG][/IMG]

At the front it didn’t look like Paul Field could be beaten with two firsts, however Craig Harris finally got his rusty thumbs working and with the three last rounds of qualifying he achieved first place in all, setting a faster race time than Paul and therefore claiming Pole Position for the 4WD A Final.

The Top 10 in the A Final 4WD Lined up as Follows:

1 Craig Harris 15/ 310.10 2 [(4) (12) (1) 1 1] 20.67
2 Paul Field 15/ 316.32 2 [1 1 (2) (6) (4)] 21.09
3 Martin Owen 15/ 317.09 4 [2 (2) (3) 2 (38)] 21.14
4 Gavin Crolla 15/ 312.50 6 [(22) 4 (7) (7) 2] 20.83
5 Damian Whittle 14/ 302.12 6 [3 3 (4) (4) (9)] 21.58
6 Ben Young 15/ 312.97 8 [5 (6) (11) (12) 3] 20.86
7 Graham North 15/ 317.21 9 [(6) (37) 6 3 (11)] 21.15
8 Robert West 15/ 319.03 10 [(9) (5) (5) 5 5] 21.27
9 Matthew Bateson 15/ 320.01 14 [(11) (20) 8 (8) 6] 21.33
10 Iain Pollard 14/ 300.73 16 [(30) (13) 9 (14) 7] 21.48


QUALIFYING RC10 CLASSICS

A virtually full heat with eight cars would see Jim Dixon (the blond one this time) make a return to winning ways taking three firsts overall to give him Pole Position over Damian Whittle who put together a first and a second to put himself second on the grid.

Local man Paul Field also had a first in round but couldn’t back it up with anything else so he lined up third.

It was an impressive sight to see the eight cars doing line starts in each of the qualifying runs. Oliver Kirkham ensured his presence was felt when completely wiped out Jim Dixon the wrong way down the straight – Oliver just laughed! That’s what kids do!

The RC10 A Final Lined up as Follows:

1 Jim Dixon 12/ 307.08 2 [(3) (1) (2) 1 1] 25.59
2 Damian Whittle 12/ 316.03 3 [1 (2) (3) (2) 2] 26.34
3 Paul Field 12/ 322.71 3 [2 (4) 1 (3) (3)] 26.89
4 Trevor Hale 11/ 303.64 7 [(4) 3 (4) (4) 4] 27.60
5 Joshua Walmsley 11/ 310.04 10 [(5) 5 (6) (8) 5] 28.19
6 Jamie Stringer 11/ 328.39 11 [(6) 6 5 (6) (6)] 29.85
7 Colin Kirkham 11/ 322.18 12 [(7) (7) (7) 5 7] 29.29
8 Oliver Kirkham 2/ 76.60 15 [8 (8) (8) 7 (8)] 38.30


The weather on the Saturday at Mendip had proved to be very warm and pleasant, Sunday however was to prove a little bit more changeable…….

WHOA WHOA WHOA!!!!

What happened Saturday night in Weston Super Mare I hear you ask?

A lovely meal was had by all in a local hostelry; we then enjoyed the vista of Weston’s enormous Pier.

A little later we took in some local live music in a beer garden and then enjoyed some more what can only be described as 70’s live music in a tunnel.

It was at this point that Andy Nancollis and his beardy chums turned up with around twenty Jaeger Bombs to tempt us into the darkness and depravity of Weston Super Mare.

All I can say is poles were danced (by Matt), Jeans were quickly torn (by Matt) and bottoms bruised (by Matt) can you see a theme here?

What happened next I cannot say for the writer was not there…………………..

However, Sunday morning broke for us to find one of the beardy chums fast asleep on the Mendip Tarmac straight wrapped in his sleeping bag with cars buzzing past his head!

Here is a picture of Graham North, contemplating the much needed "hair of the dog"

[IMG][/IMG]

The weather was looking a bit iffy, but it was warm and we cracked on with the final round of qualifying ahead of the finals:

I think we got about four finals in before the heavens opened and dumped a reasonable amount of rain on the track. We held the meeting whilst the rain abated and then resumed the meeting but the local weather expert (Matt Owen’s Mum) reckoned we were in for more so we quickly decided to run at least one Leg of Finals to at least get a result for the meeting:

2WD FINALS

With only one leg finals the results were:

F Final – Winner – Matthew Hinks
E Final – Winner – Matt Latham – not that one, the other one!
D Final – Winner – Tim Finch
C Final – Winner – Lee Stokes – 2nd was Mark Christopher, I bet that was interesting!
B Final – Winner – Ian Kirkpatrick

A FINAL 2WD

Chris Evison would lead the field away followed closely by Martin Owen and Richard Coates. Richard had a bobble on lap 4 which saw him drop back from the ferocious pace of the two leaders. However on Lap 9 it went wrong for Chris as Martin took advantage it was a scruffy lap for both of them but Martin was through and a second mistake from Chris on the next lap gave Martin the advantage and he stormed to victory with five consistent 22 second laps.

Chris’s mistakes had let Richard Coates and Mark Field through and both of them made it through for the extra lap leaving Chris back in fourth place. Richard held on despite Marks best efforts to take a well deserved second place with Mark in third.

As we could only run one round due to the weather, the results were:

1 2 Martin Owen 14/ 317.16 22.65 21.73 (2)
2 3 Richard Coates 14/ 320.68 22.91 22.29 (8)
3 4 Mark Field 14/ 322.69 23.05 22.26 (8)
4 1 Chris Evison 13/ 302.55 23.27 21.91 (2)
5 7 Jim Dixon 13/ 308.72 23.75 22.19 (12)
6 10 Dan Osbourne 13/ 316.07 24.31 23.22 (11)
7 5 Gavin Crolla 13/ 316.25 24.33 22.90 (8)
8 8 Paul Crawford 13/ 323.43 24.88 22.23 (8)
9 6 Tom Knowles 9/ 214.21 23.80 22.24 (9)
10 9 Mike Parker DNS 0.00 (0)


4WD FINALS

With only one leg finals the results were:

D Final – Winner – Jack Keeney
C Final – Winner – Matt Lovett
B Final – Winner – Steven Ireland

The track was pretty wet by now and the Mendip Team did all they could to get rid of the standing water, but the conditions were tricky to say the least!

A FINAL 4WD

Craig Harris lead the charge into the first corner on a very wet unknown grip level track, he had Paul Field, Martin Owen and Gav Crolla in close company. Gav was the first to crack, catching a track marking and rolling letting Damian Whittle through to fourth place.

The race at the front was intense as none of the top three gave an inch, they were all putting in 22 and 21 second laps, Paul Field was trying everything to get past but it was to be Craig Harris who was the quickest and most consistent, he crossed the line to take the win by only 0.06 of a second. Martin took a distant third but the race was on for fourth. Quietly, Matthew Bateson had been climbing through the field from ninth and going into the final lap he was on the tail of Damian in fourth.

Damian defended the last lap right until the final corner onto the straight where Matthew sprang his attack and drove right around the outside of Damian onto the straight. However as he nailed the throttle, his Durango 410 slew to one side allowing Damian’s Team C TM4 to regain the advantage as he applied the power a little more delicately for the prevailing conditions.

The result was Damian fourth, Matt fifth, again by 0.06 of a second.

Who needs National racing when club racing is this close!!???

As we could only run one round due to the weather, the results were:

1 1 Craig Harris 14/ 302.51 21.61 21.17 (3)
2 2 Paul Field 14/ 302.57 21.61 20.95 (8)
3 3 Martin Owen 14/ 312.63 22.33 21.93 (6)
4 5 Damian Whittle 14/ 315.60 22.54 21.96 (5)
5 9 Matthew Bateson 14/ 315.66 22.55 21.59 (7)
6 6 Ben Young 14/ 320.38 22.88 21.75 (6)
7 4 Gavin Crolla 13/ 300.45 23.11 21.98 (5)
8 8 Robert West 13/ 306.01 23.54 21.81 (12)
9 10 Iain Pollard 13/ 322.63 24.82 21.33 (10)
10 7 Graham North 12/ 307.00 25.58 21.04 (6)


RC10 A FINAL

Another wet final and with 1980’s technology, weird tyres and 6 gear transmissions it was always going to be a struggle to get the RC10’s around in one piece.

The start was interesting to say the least as most cars made it to the end of the straight and half the field spun out on the wet corner!

Jim Dixon was leading with Paul Field second and Damian Whittle third after his off at the end of the straight. Unfortunately on Lap 8 it all came to end for Jim as ironically the 21st Century technology of brushless motors just got too wet and emitted a very disappointing puff of smoke to signal its untimely demise!

This let Paul Field through who calmly guided his car to the win leaving Damian trying to chase hard but his efforts just caused more spin outs so he settled for second. Local driver Trevor Hale prevailed against the weather to take third.

As we could only run one round due to the weather, the results were:

1 3 Paul Field 12/ 320.37 26.70 25.65 (11)
2 2 Damian Whittle 11/ 313.57 28.51 26.61 (6)
3 4 Trevor Hale 11/ 317.52 28.87 26.82 (5)
4 5 Joshua Walmsley 11/ 318.61 28.96 27.30 (6)
5 6 Jamie Stringer 10/ 330.13 33.01 30.03 (3)
6 7 Colin Kirkham 9/ 303.32 33.70 30.16 (3)
7 1 Jim Dixon 8/ 224.46 28.06 26.08 (6)
8 8 Oliver Kirkham 2/ 271.59 135.80 138.10 (2)


As the rain came down harder, sadly the track flooded a little and it was decided that we would stop at one round of Finals.

There was a trophy ceremony for those who stayed to brave the weather and the raffle prizes were randomly distributed during the rain breaks – Thanks Propel R/C, HPi and oOple!!!

We had a great time at Mendip and the track as ever was universally praised for its uniqueness – is that a word?

Thanks to Paul Morrissey, Andy Nancollis, Martin Owen and all the team at Mendip!

Off to the final Round 4 at SUNNY SOUTHPORT…………………………………


ROUND FOUR – SOUTHPORT – 25th/26th JULY 2015

This would be our third trip to Southport in three years of the Ooooos meetings, Southport being the first club to agree to let oOple attempt to run a race meeting!

Thanks Eric Evison!

[IMG][/IMG]

Now, you would think running two meetings in July in the UK would give you a good chance of sunny weather?

WRONG!

We arrived on Friday evening to find Chris and James Burgess attempting to hoover a lake of water off the track, it was raining quite hard 

A study of the weather forecast showed that the weather would dry up Friday night to leave a beautiful sunny day on Saturday with the rain returning in earnest on Sunday.

A quick conflab between the oOple team brought the decision that we would cram the entire weekends racing into Saturday and effectively give Sunday up as a bad job. This would entail running practice, three qualifying rounds and three leg finals for everyone.

[IMG][/IMG]

Stu Evans took to social media to spread the word as we need to start as near to 10am in the morning to cram it all in.

At Southport we had 57 2WD, 43 4WD and 5 RC10 drivers competing for honours.

I would like to thank all the drivers at Southport for co-operating with the organisers regarding the decision to do one days racing.

Practice started early at 8.30am on a wet but drying track, drying because Tony Parr was doing a Freddie Mercury, I Want To Break Free routine at the end of the straight with a vacuum cleaner!

[IMG][/IMG]

By 10am all the drivers were booked in and drivers briefing was underway.

The Dremel boys, Mark Christopher and Lee Stokes who have always supported the Series with their attendance and a Dremel Tool for the raffle, kindly rewarded Damian Whittle for organising the Series with a Dremel Tool of his own – VERY NICE!

[IMG][/IMG]

QUALIFYING 2WD

Going into the final round of the championship four drivers had a chance of winning the overall Series, Ben Jemison, Paul Crompton, Chris Evison and Richard Coates.

Sadly for Richard the small number of qualifying runs would nullify his chances as he had a decent start with 8th in Round one but broke his car in rounds two and three and with the shortened meeting it would mean he lined up in the E Final.

So, you had to be quick but consistent to ensure you got two good runs. Chris Evison was straight out of the blocks with two wins in the first two rounds securing him pole position in the A Final. Ben Jemison duly secured second place overall with three tidy runs and a first overall in round three denying Chris the clean sweep.
The driver strangely off par was Paul Crompton, who scraped into the A Final in ninth place with local driver Ashley Fensom completing the top three in third position.

The Top 10 in the A Final 2WD Lined up as Follows:

1 Chris Evison 14/ 317.60 2 [1 1 (3)] 22.69
2 Ben Jemison 14/ 319.25 3 [2 (3) 1] 22.80
3 Ashley Fensom 13/ 302.71 5 [3 2 (4)] 23.29
4 Mark Smith 14/ 319.93 6 [(4) 4 2] 22.85
5 Luke Holdsworth 13/ 307.37 10 [5 (6) 5] 23.64
6 Tony Parr 13/ 307.73 11 [6 5 (7)] 23.67
7 Gavin Crolla 13/ 312.42 14 [(10) 8 6] 24.03
8 Stephen Lawson 13/ 314.90 14 [7 7 (8)] 24.22
9 Paul Crompton 13/ 314.82 18 [(18) 9 9] 24.22
10 Lee Fraser 13/ 315.88 22 [(12) 12 10] 24.30

[IMG][/IMG]


QUALIFYING 4WD

As the 4WD Series reached its climax, it was clear that during the last two rounds, local heroes had won the meetings which left Paul Crompton, Damian Whittle, Stephen Lawson, Graham North and Matthew Bateson all with a chance of taking the overall title.

Paul started off in the best possible way in round one to take first place, but unfortunately broke his car in round two leaving him with a nerve wracking run in round three as he had to make the A Final to retain his chance of winning the title. He needn’t have worried as he put in the second fastest time to secure second overall on the grid for the A Final.

The next driver to show was local man Matthew Bateson running his newly acquired Yokomo Bmax iii. Second in round one was backed up with fifth in round three and saw him line up third on the grid.

It was another local driver, Mark Smith who would take pole position in 4WD, guiding his Yokomo Bmax iii to two first overalls in rounds two and three.

The Top 10 in the A Final 4WD Lined up as Follows:

1 Mark Smith 14/ 316.85 2 [(3) 1 1] 22.63
2 Paul Crompton 13/ 302.68 3 [1 (42) 2] 23.28
3 Matthew Bateson 13/ 304.36 7 [2 (6) 5] 23.41
4 Stephen Lawson 13/ 303.71 7 [4 (36) 3] 23.36
5 Damian Whittle 13/ 305.42 8 [(5) 4 4] 23.49
6 Graham North 13/ 305.74 9 [6 3 (7)] 23.52
7 Luke Holdsworth 13/ 305.35 11 [(36) 2 9] 23.49
8 Gavin Crolla 13/ 311.49 11 [(7) 5 6] 23.96
9 Jeff Steele 13/ 317.96 15 [(8) 7 8] 24.46
10 Neil Burdess 13/ 321.55 19 [10 9 (11)] 24.73


QUALIFYING RC10 CLASSICS

Jim Dixon would score two firsts to take pole position, with Damian Whittle taking a first and second to line up second in the A Final.
James Wilkinson had also put three good runs together to place third overall, dialling his car into the track ready for the finals.
The Top 10 in the A Final RC10 Lined up as Follows:

1 Jim Dixon 12/ 318.50 2 [1 (3) 1] 26.54
2 Damian Whittle 12/ 315.13 3 [(3) 1 2] 26.26
3 James Wilkinson 12/ 322.59 4 [2 2 (3)] 26.88
4 Colin Kirkham 10/ 318.47 8 [(4) 4 4] 31.85
5 Oliver Kirkham 5/ 331.25 10 [5 5 (5)] 66.25

So, with only a ten minute break between qualifying and the finals it was time to get the rest of an epic day underway.

2WD FINALS

All the finals were run over three legs and the winners were:

F Final – Winner – Craig Black
E Final - Winner – Nicholas Child
D Final – Winner – Richard Coates
C Final – Winner – Steven Ball
B Final – Winner – Jim Dixon

A Final - Leg 1

Chris Evison lead away from pole with Ben Jemison in hot pursuit, sadly Ben would make a big mistake on lap 3 tumbling down the order and only eventually claiming seventh overall. Paul Crompton had made a great start and was soon up to fourth place but that’s as far as he got as both Ashley Fensom and Mark Smith were battling it out for second and third.

Chris was the only driver to make it over the line for the extra lap putting him on fourteen laps and winning the first leg.

Ashley made a mistake which let Mark through and he would finish less than a second in front of a charging Ashley.

A Final – Leg 2

Another good start for Chris Evison on his home track saw him lead away on his most consistent run of the day, hardly ever slower than 22 second laps he won the race from lights to flag and secured the overall win on the day.

Ben Jemison, Ashley Fensom, Mark Smith and a hard charging Paul Crompton resumed their battle at the front. Another small mistake from Ben let Ashley through and then another mistake from both of them allowed Mark to capitalise and move up into his now familiar second place. This time Mark just missed getting through to 14 laps by 0.38 of a second however he was over nine seconds clear of Ben who was busy holding off Paul. Paul would finish in fourth again just 1 second behind Ben in third.

A Final – Leg 3

Having already won the meeting, Chris must’ve relaxed a little as he couldn’t repeat his Leg 2 pace and slipped down the order to fourth overall, a crash on lap 9 sealing his fate.

Ben and Ashley were battling for the win but mistakes from Ben first on lap 3 and Ashley on lap 10 allowed Mr Consistency Mark Smith to take advantage and the Leg 3 win.

Ashley would go on to finish second with a great result for Tony Parr in third just ahead of Chris in fourth. Paul Crompton couldn’t repeat his earlier feat of climbing through the pack and had to settle for a distant sixth. Ben had another bad lap towards the end of the race and that consigned him to eighth place.

4WD Finals

All the finals were run over three legs and the winners were:

E Final – Winner – Martin Inglis
D Final – Winner – Colin McCaffrey
C Final – Winner – Lee Stokes
B Final – Winner – Minty Tailor

A Final - Leg 1

Mark Smith was on pole position and led the field as they charged into the first corner. Immediately second placed Paul Crompton came a cropper and popped a track rod which put him back almost a full lap. He would have another big crash as he tried to climb back up the field but inevitably he was too far behind and had to settle for eighth.

Mark didn’t look back and reeled off ten consecutive 22 second laps to be the only driver into 14 laps and easily take the leg one win.

Behind him however a mighty battle ensued. Matthew Bateson had taken up second place after Paul’s demise however Stephen Lawson was steadily catching him and coming onto the last lap there were some OOHS and ARGHS as Stephen tried to put a pass on Matt. Matt held on just, skating around the final concrete corner to take second place by just 0.12 seconds over Stephen in third.

Another battle for fourth and fifth was raging behind with Damian Whittle just about holding Graham North off by a second over the line.

A Final – Leg 2

Leg two started quickly enough but it was soon apparent that maybe a set up change on Mark’s car had not worked to his liking and a series of grip rolls saw him fall down the order.

Matthew took over the lead fleetingly after Paul made a mistake but a mistake by Matthew on lap 5 saw Paul take the lead and drive away from the field.

All this had brought Damian Whittle and Graham North into contention as Stephen Lawson pulled his car off on lap 9. Paul had pulled a ten second gap on Damian in second and Graham was chasing him down relentlessly.

Paul made it to the end to win Leg 2 but it was all down to second and third. Entering the final lap, Graham was visibly closer and charging hard, coming onto the final banked concrete bend Damian took it at an oblique angle, rolled over back onto his wheels but he had let Graham through to take second place.

The stars of Leg 1, Mark and Matthew had to settle for fifth and sixth so it was all down to Leg 3 to see who would take the win overall and the title.

A Final - Leg 3

This time Mark was away at the front and gone, Paul tried in vain to stay with him but on lap 6 it went wrong, he rolled and Mark gained even more time. This allowed Matthew up into second place but again small mistakes were costing time and a couple of rolls later he was down in fourth. Stephen Lawson had three awful laps where he couldn’t keep the car on its wheels and he tumbled to eighth leaving Damian Whittle and Graham North to resume their battle for the minor placings.

Paul would consolidate his second place and come over the line behind Mark who again got through for the extra fourteenth lap. Behind them Graham made a mistake which let Matthew through for fourth place and it allowed Damian breathing space to bring his car home in third overall for Leg 3.

A Final Overall Results

1 1 Mark Smith 2 [ 1 5 1 - 14/ 318.92 ] 22.78 0.00 (0)
2 2 Paul Crompton 3 [ 8 1 2 - 13/ 303.44 ] 23.34 0.00 (0)
3 3 Matthew Bateson 6 [ 2 6 4 - 13/ 303.84 ] 23.37 0.00 (0)

10 8 Gavin Crolla 17 [ 9 8 10 - 12/ 306.86 ] 25.57 0.00 (0)

RC10 Finals

Jim Dixon would lead the small field of RC10’s away in Leg 1 with Damian Whittle in second and James Wilkinson a close third. It was all going so well until Jim made a mistake, Damian followed the same mistake all on lap 7 and James Wilkinson said thanks very much and waltzed off into the distance!

Despite their best efforts Jim and Damian couldn’t catch James and that’s how it finished.

Leg 2 was a closer affair with the leading three drivers running line astern until lap 3 when Jim rolled over, Damian and James nipped through only for Damian to crash on lap 8 letting James by. Damian charged after James and with James having a bad penultimate lap, Damian was closing in taking three and a half seconds out of him starting the last lap. James held his nerve though and crossed the finishing line 0.6 seconds ahead of Damian with Jim in third.

This gave James the overall win at Southport.

Leg 3 was more of a procession with all the cars starting and finishing in the same order, Jim finally converting his pole position into a win!

RC10 Overall Results

1 3 James Wilkinson 2 [ 1 1 3 - 12/ 313.71 ] 26.14 0.00 (0)
