2017-2018 Winter Series Dates

Hi guys and girls, we’ve finalised the dates for the FORCC winter series 17/18 to be held at Boughton Village Hall. This year, unlike others, we only have 4 meetings in the series with best 3 from 4 to count. These will be:

  • December 17th 2017
  • January 21st 2018
  • February 18th 2018
  • March 18th 2018

(all Sundays)

We only have 4 dates as we were unable to access the hall in November and we will be holding a separate meeting in October.

Many of you will know that a great friend and supporter of the club, Les Kerry, suffered a stroke earlier in the year. We have spoken to Les’ family as a club, and have decided upon a fundraising meeting, with proceeds going towards the Kingston Rehabilitation Centre at Canterbury Hospital, where patients, including Les, receive treatment to aid their recovery. 

This fundraising meeting will be held on Sunday 1st October 2017 at Boughton Village Hall. Final details of the meeting are still being decided, but will be confirmed later towards the date.

Please feel free, regular or not, to attend this one off meeting and aid in the raising of funds for such a great cause.

Winter Series Round 6

Winter Series Results Updated

It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ride but after 6 months, the FORCC Winter Series for 2016-2017 has run its course and drawn to a close. As my son would say, “Hashtag Sad Face”. There were 45 entries today making a total of 243 entries for the championship this year. Not bad for a little middle aged club!

Thank You

Thank you all for supporting the Winter Series this year. Thanks also to Schumacher Racing for supporting us this year.

Yet more thanks to the early birds and night owls that help set up and pack away. You guys know this stuff doesn’t happen by magic and these guys make all the difference!

Yet even more thanks goes to Nes and her team of helpers for all the tea, coffee, hotdogs, bacon rolls, Jacket Spuds and Chilli that have been served up over the past 6 months.

The last thank you goes to Andy Von Ashman for bringing his gopro along so we could capture some of the action on video 😀. It recorded the first 2 legs of the finals before the battery gave out. I’ve uploaded Leg 1 for now and Leg 2 will follow later.

UPDATE: Leg 2 videos now available 🙂

Round 6 of 6

With first place wrapped up in all 3 championships going into the final round, it was all about who would be best of the rest.

4 Wheel Drive

4WD had the most contenders with 4 drivers in with a shot at 2nd overall and after qualifying they were sat line astern in 2nd to 5th behind the pole man and championship leader George. George scampered off into the distance in all 3 legs to win overall but that coveted 2nd spot would not prove so easy to come by. Leg 1 was quite messy and by the roll of the dice Mark would get 2nd followed by myself in 3rd. In Leg 2 it was Dave that regrouped after a disappointing first leg and had second place in the bag until about a minute from the end when he lost the nut off a rear ball stud and would limp home in 4th. That left myself and Mark to pick up the pieces but this time I came out on top. In Leg 3, there would be no denying Dave this time with every nut on his car fully tightened he held 2nd place from start to finish followed by myself in 3rd.

4WD A Final (Jon 2nd, George 1st, Mark 3rd)

 

4WD B Final (Tom 2nd, John 1st, Michael 3rd)

2 Wheel Drive

In the 2WD A final, leg 1 was taken by poll man and championship leader Kyle, followed by Neil in 2nd and Spangly in 3rd. In Leg 2, Neil got the upper hand but a mistake 3 laps from the end opened the door for Kyle to go through and take the win followed by Neil in 2nd and Sam in 3rd place. Kyle, Neil and Sam would go onto replicate their positions in Leg 3.

2WD A Final (Sam 3rd, Kyle 1st, Neil 2nd)

 

2WD B Final (Verner 2nd, Jay 1st, Ian 3rd)

 

2WD C Final (Alfie 3rd, William 1st, Lloyd 2nd)

Short Course Trucks

In Short Course, it was Poll man and championship leader Spangly that had everything to lose. He had been untouchable all day, but would he be able to make it a clean sweep? In Leg 1 traffic would play its part and try as they might, Verner and Dave just couldn’t stay with Spangly. Leg 2 was much the same but this time It was Dave in 2nd and Verner 3rd. Going into leg 3, 1st place overall was wrapped up, but with a 2nd and 3rd each, Dave and Verner had everything to play for. This time it was Spangly that had issues which left him in last place after lap 1 and a mountain to climb. Dave took the early lead with Verner hot on his heels. Verner made it to the front by lap 5 and by lap 9 Spangly had made his way from last to first. A mistake on lap 13 would see Spangly relegated to 3rd and would soon be a lap down. With Spangly now out of contention, it was left to Dave and Verner to fight it out. Dave drove the wheels off his truck but couldn’t catch a break with the traffic and while he would get within spitting distance of Verner, he just wasn’t quick enough on the day and finished just a couple of seconds behind at the fall of the flag.

SCT A Final (Verner 2nd, Spangly 1st, Dave 3rd)

 

Thanks Jeremy…

Closing Ceremony…

Never known for being afraid of his own voice, Alan took center stage for the closing ceremony. His attempt to auction off the kids didn’t raise as much as he’d hoped for.

With the formalities out of thw way it was time to give out a few prizes 🙂

Congratulations everyone and with the Winter Series now over it will be back to business as usual on Wednesday which will be a great relief since I think it has taken longer to put this post together than it actually took to run the meeting… 😉

Supporting the FORCC Winter Series

Thanks to everyone that supported the club’s Winter Series today. There were 38 entries accross the 3 classes which was a pretty good turnout considering there were other events on and at least 1 person was ill (or at least he said he was…). Obviously the biggest thank you for the day goes to Ness for producing some excellent jacket spuds and bacon rolls. They were awesome 🙂

Thank you to everyone that came along today. We hope you all enjoyed it. As always the help setting up and packing up is very much appreciated 🐳. Kyle created a challenging little track (which may have resulted in him being removed from 1 or 2 peoples christmas lists) but once we got the hang of it, it proved to be a rewarding drive 😀. 39 Drivers spread accross the 3 classes made for a great days racing 😉.
