27th Meeting Report -Sunday 5th February 2006.

Another cracking meeting at Denton, sorry this will be a quick meeting report, as Rachael needs the computer soon!! 13 drivers for this one – Budge had forgotten about the meeting! Doh! He was apologetic when I called him just after the meeting had started. Sadly Kirky couldn’t make it, so Big J had lost his ride too. This was a qualifying meet – but nobody seemed too bothered about that!

Heat 1 - What a close one! This was a cracking race, it was slow to start (well I was on wasn’t I) but it did get going later in the race. Gary was looking quick, but him and Chris had some great races, both of them exchanging paintwork! Stewart (new racer and welcome to Denton) was doing ok, he was finding his feet. Young Dan was also doing well, he looked good, again welcome to Denton Dan. In the end it was Gary that took a good win, ahead of Dan. me and Chris. There was just one point between qualifying for the final.

Heat 2 - Dunc had a great start on lane 3 and 4, he couldn’t do anything wrong, well the other cars were in self destruct and he gladly collected the points. He scored 23 on lane 3 and 4, not bad eh! This was a lead that Dunc didn’t loose. So it was a race for 2nd, Richard Alan and Jane was racing well. Richard had the bit between his teeth in this one, and took a fine 2nd place behind Dunc. Alan was third.

Consi time - Another good en. Hil, who was in Richard spare for this one, took a great start and scored 4 wins from her 1st lane. Stuart was also going well, he was finding his feet and staying out of trouble. The rest of us were getting in each others way, me and Pete had some good hits, and Pete’s bumper took a liking for my back bumper, Doh! Alan was also looking for the last qualifying spot. In the end it was Hil that took a great win, followed by Stuart – he was in his 1st final at his race at Denton – sorry mate, no booking next meet! Alan was so close in 3rd, but was down on race wins.

The action got all to much for some - see Right.

Final time - I didn’t see any of the final – sorry. Im sure it was a crackin race, but I can’t really comment about it. Great meeting report eh! Dan had the best start, but Gary was always close. Stuart was also doing well and took a few wins on the inner lanes. In the end it was between Stuart and Gary. Gary just took a good win, his 2nd this week, and hopefully he will make red (please!). Well done Stuart for an excellent 2nd place!

GN - My caravan was out for this – saying that a few caravans were out for this. There were a lot of fast drivers ahead of the field in this one. However there were a few good hits going in. Cath was flying in this one – she took a great win! I took 2nd, my only decent result of the night. Chris took 3rd.

Helter Skelter - The best race of the night by far!!! So many great hits going in. Stuart and Richard had a great race – Stuart certainly had a baptism of fire in this one – and he scored a single point to take last spot!!! He was game for a fencing though!!! In the end it was Richard, yes Richard who took the win, Alan was 2nd and Gary 3rd. The rest of us didn’t score more than 9 points!! Hehe good stuff. I think Richard was shocked with his score!!!

Well that rounds up a quick meeting report. A great meeting, thanks to all racers for making it so good and for helping me get the meeting finished in 3 hours, that’s with a break and the helter skelter race! Thanks guys!

Thanks to my mum and dad for the excellent hot dogs, cakes and drinks!

Keep well all, enjoy your racing and keep smiling
