Some nice pics, Obviously my car was too fast to photograph!

Nice track, the first time I've raced there despite going down to watch some 8th.
If only the wind was blowing in a different direction. Just when I thought I'd got the measure of the big jump, the wind blew the car into a side flip and broke it. Ending my day technically. Tried to fix its wishbone with tie wraps and superglue but it only lasted 2 laps.

Shame really. I enjoyed the layout, but it turned out to be possibly one of my most disapointing race days ever. 4th after round one, and if I'd got another steady run (r2 stopped with elec problems, r3 broke, r4 re-broke) I would have been well up in the A.

But thats the way racing goes.
I would suggest a look at the PA system there though. Because I couldn't understand a single word that lady was saying on the system.

Nice day though and a fitting track to end the series on.
Roll on next year.

After missing out my my F2 last year by one place, lets see how many places I've missed out on the F2 grade this year!

I really didn't like the track for the first couple of runs, but I have to say it grew on me throughout the day......loved it by the final! the weather was also very kind to us, judging by the huge puddles just up the road we were about half a mile away from a washout.

Thanks to all involved in organising this seasons events :-)

Thanks Lads and sorry for the PA system as I stood on the PA jack for the laptop and flattened it. I had to do a bloomin mad quick fix to the radio mic jack and that just distorted her voice real bad. Sorry for that lesson learnt spare leads need to be made up.

Thanks for turning up yesterday and I'm glad the weather held out. And a big thank you to you all leaving the site clean and tidy as that saves us loads of time and the wife and I got home early last night, thank you.

It was a good race with some good close driving and some close position changing for 4th place between a gaggle of buggies. You are going to have to look at doing 5 min heats and at least 8min finals if not longer as you have got lipo's now!

Thanks for coming and see you all soon
Tim
