Track Markers

Yes, we know they are not working well but if we all work together it will reduce the frustration until then new ones can be made. When you’re marshalling, just monitor the markers ‘in your area’ and try to push them back into the correct positions when they move during the race. Once a race has finished, please take a moment to correct the track before you leave your marshalling point. It only takes a moment but the next heat of racers will show you their appreciation in ways you can only dream of…

My new phone made a little montage video from the pics and videos I took.

Winter Series Classes & Championships

The dates have already been posted but here is an update on the proposed classes and championships:

Classes:

2WD, 4WD & 2WD Short Course only. No Stadium or 4WD Short Course allowed.

You may enter a maxium of 2 classes.

A class will only be run if there is enough entries to make a heat. We will starting canvasing you chaps from next week as to what you might be running.

Championships:

Best 4 from 6 to count. You must score points in at least 4 rounds (per class entered) in order to qualify for any trophies or prizes being awarded.

There will be overall 2WD, 4WD & SCT championships which everyone will be entered into.

Due to the changing demographic at the club (we’re all getting older 🙁 ), under 13 and under 16 no longer really work so we are changing it to Under 16 and Under 21. There will be sub championships for those age groups.

Race Fees

£4 for under 16s, £6 for everyone else. We are not planning to pre-book the series.

Thanks also to those that stayed to pack up as well. 7 Heats and we were still packed up by about 10:30 😎

Mark Headling took a few videos last night. Thanks Mark 😀

Week 2

Results updated.

Second track of the new era…

Track20140827

People are definitely starting to find their feet with the new surface. A lot of different tyres were being tried with varying degrees of success. It looks like there are a couple of good candidates for people looking for a longer life tyre 🙂

Another historic milestone was passed last night too… More 2WD then 4WD ! In the infamous words of Mr. Bob Dylan,

” The Times They Are A-Changin’ “

Thank you once again to those that stayed to help pack up the Astro. We will start rotating the heat listings so it’s not always the same people left at the end of the night.

 Next Week

The mad rush over to 2WD this week messed up some of the ranking and heats this which is why it took a while to get going. Next week is Truck Week and the start of the new championships. We will be aiming to be racing by 7:30 so we can still finish at a reasonable time. We will also need a few people to step up and build the track next week as Alan and Dave are both away.
