Default A GREAT WEEKEND! INVERNATIONAL 17

Hi, I would just like to say a massive THANKS to the oOple Team and RHR team that put last weekends meeting together! The addition of the Endurance Race was fantastic with the winners only 2.8 seconds ahead of second place after three hours of frantic racing, never mind the bouncy castle start!

Congratulations to Ben Jemison in 2WD, Michal Orlowski in 4WD and Adam Skelding in ShortCourse, all worthy winners with some some great battles in all the classes.

Endurance Winners were - Men in Tights! Aka Team Helliwell

We also added a race where juniors and WAGS raced - Such Fun and no broken ankles!

Many thanks to these guys because without them it just wouldn't happen.

Thanks a lot guys. I had a fantastic weekend

I'm not feeling the 10.5....mainly because I don't own one. Is there another way to slow it down?
