Default Well Done

First I have to say that the track at Boughton was great (even though it was my worst days racing for ages).

Second I have to say that I witnessed some of the worst manners and rule breaks again (not saying I'm whiter than white).

I for one am going to give it a lot of thought about if I am going to do the regionals next year.

The main reason is for the constant rule breaks (people not on marshalling points quick enough, people leaving the rostrum, shouting at marshalls etc).

This would be stamped out if the penalties were given as they are supposed too not just saying penalties will be given then doing nothing about it.

All the above is not aimed at anybody or any track in particular.

The introduction of a ref did help but they need bigger balls!

Still a big thanks to all involved in putting on the series and all host clubs.

And another thanks to Boughton.

Great days racing yesterday,superb track. Took a while to get used to the fake grass but got it in the end.

But the best news is,i have not got to listen to this muppet screaming every five minutes at someone.
Do us a favour and if you are going to do the EOE next year go and get some anger management treatment.
And next time you scream at your little boy in front of everybody,think of the consequences of doing so.
If you need to shout at someone come and shout at me.

Thanks Barry and the rest of the Boughton crew for a great day's racing. It ran like clockwork IMO. One of the best meetings of the season..... even if I did end up with the Chump Cup

I'd like to thank all the people at Boughton for a well run event, and it was a great place to finish the eoe regionals in my point of view.

I personally didn't have a great days racing, as I definitely struggled to set my car up for that track.

I did have a great day however, and look forward to racing again at Boughton next year hopefully!

Congrats to Alex Springer / John Myall on the overall 2wd / 4wd wins

Finally, I'd like to thank the various other racers who have helped me during this regional series with loaned motors / batteries and other bits which I somehow broke on my car.

-Will.

Thanks to all at boughton, I know you were kept busy but the meeting ran great. Well done to Alex and John (Dingo saves the day).
I look forward to next year, IMO the best EOE regional yet.
Loving the drama, but lets remember....
ITS ONLY TOY CARS .....

First off, big thanks to Barry & the Boughton crew for another top meeting at Boughton, always the best part of the year going there.

More thanks to Colin & Ben Hubbard for the rep duties making 2013 the best year so far in the EoE

Well done to Alec for taking the 2wd title, maybe closer then you wanted it to be?

I'm pretty stoked to have retained the 4wd title, the first using Vampire power, but do feel bad for Rob who has had a much better year then me, next year maybe Rob?

With that being said;

James, we've always got along well, but I'm not sure what happened to you this year, but you have not been an offender, rather you have been the offender when it comes to bad language & behavior, you say yesterday was pure frustration with a completely innocent Nic Donovan, so what explains your behavior at Herts, MERRC & a few other blow ups this year?

You have blamed everyone & everything bar yourself on things not going your way, it's no body's fault other then you if you crash & break your car, have you stopped to think about what might've happened if you'd hit my car head on in the last leg of the A when you did your retarded attempt at the triple & it had cost me the title?

As for shouting at Calum

I suggest next time you feel hacked off, take a deep breath, pack up the car & go home before you make yourself look like a tit, as a few of us have done at some point this year.

Simple, at the end of the straight the cars are going very quick, with the option that they might not slow down enough for the corner resulting in a huge crash, James in rd1 is a good example.

Cars speeding up are obviously going slower, so any crash should be smaller.

Maybe next time you go on a witch hunt, find the facts out first.
Facts, interesting word, fact is Nic said to Cal that James needed to learn manners, fair point to after the way he was shouted at yesterday & that fact is one of your own Facebook posts Vicky

I'd just like to say a very big thank you to the Boughton crew for providing a top class facility that is most certainly the best venue in the region by a country mile. The track quality is excellent, its all perfectly maintained, clean etc and was a joy to drive on. Race control, commentary etc was all spot on, the meeting ran like clockwork with no problems whatsoever. Anyone who hasn't been to Boughton is missing out, so get along there people and support this club as they need people to attend to keep running excellent meetings at this brilliant venue.

Thanks and a big well done to Danny and Mark for making it close and also for their wise decision to run the Team C TM2 throughout the year on out very varied surfaces, i'm sure they would agree that there is no better choice of 2wd at the moment.

Well done to John on the 4wd win, sorry i couldn't do all the rounds, it became a nightmare trying to do both on the same day. Unlucky Rob, you certainly had the pace but zero luck on the day.

Thanks to Colin for his work throughout the series, keep it up mate.

And lastly, there was some 'talk' on here before the series started about how i was 'supposed' to be but hopefully, now i've put that rubbish to bed and i'm just a racer like everyone else (i wont say normal lol).

Alec

He isn't Vicky, James has behaved like a tit several times this year & I'd like to think he'd admit it. People including me & I think of James as a mate, have got rightly fed up with it, the abuse of Nic on Sunday took it too far.

Cal just seemed to be added in somehow & you being his mother has only seen that bit, the old blinkers come on for things like that, my wife is the same when next door moans about the dogs barking!

Glad you liked Boughton Alec seeing how much we bigged it up before hand, I like to think of Boughton as Spa for RC cars, just need an Eau Rouge style bomb hole/corner.

It would've been fun to have raced against you more, don't want your last memory to be that clumsy last corner move at Colchester

Still, my X-6 Cubed will be here very soon, so maybe we'll pick it up again in 2wd instead next year??

Oh, and I think Simon Watson deserves a mention for 4th place, or 1st in class after the TeamC boys as I like to think of it!

I'm working on it.....
The winter may bring changes, not too many though, the track works well at the moment, I don't want to risk altering it, and it not working as well.

I'm planning on holding an end of season "Boughton Raceway GP", probably in September, it may replace the final round of the summer series. If anyone is interested, or would like to see this go ahead please let me know. If I can get enough interest, maybe I could try and get the meeting sponsored, obviously, if only three people respond, no one will want to sponsor the meeting.

I'm up for it if date is ok.
I enjoyed the track even though me and my car were on awful form on Sunday.

It would be good to return and try harder.

Just the lump at the end of the straight on the inside half. From P2 there is no where to go but over it and straight into last place

Nic I think we had better ask Ben to do a re count

Seriously, well done mate. You always give me a laugh on a race day and that's what it's all about really.
