Meeting Report - Sunday 15th October 2006

First meeting in the new season here at Denton. 11 racers were up for the medallion, which was up for the final winner. This was kindly sponsored by my mum and dad. This meeting was the annual memorial race for my Grandma. Kirky, who sadly couldn’t make the meet, won this last year.

The weather was decent, and I felt it warm enough for an outside meet. The last one of the season outside!!! Unless we go out for Halloween!!!

The 1st race of the afternoon was a quick W and Y race. Just a bit of run this one. Hil was on form in this one, she raced well all afternoon in fact, and got some good breaks. Stew and my dad had slower starts (stew down at yellow – hes not really a yellow!!)
Pat was also slow finding his feet, but improved as the race went on. In the end it was Hil that took the win. Well done Hil!

Heat 1 - Good to see Richard back on track, his self built newie got better as the afternoon went on, however in this one he was racing a Dunc spare. He was back in the groove and using the bumper to good effect. He drew himself next to Dunc and the pair of them had a great race, add in Stew in to the mix and it got better!!! Young Jon was also flying, he used the bumper when needed, but often let Dunc and Richard do the hard work.
In the end it was Dunc who took the win followed by Y Jon.
This was a great heat to watch – lots of action and bumper work plus a hatful of laughs!!

Heat 2 - Stew was seeded into this as he came last in the 1st heat. This was another good race. Very tight for points. Cath and Pat were back sharing paint work, they had a great race. Pete was causing chaos where he could, but had some great races. Nige was also back on form, he was using the bumper to good effect all afternoon. This was very close – Nige took the win by a single point, followed by Stew, I was a point back in 3rd, close!!

Consi Time - Everybody had bad lanes in this one – Im looking at the points chart now and I can see anybody who had a really good spell. From being in this one, I really enjoyed it. Plenty of bumper work and action all around. This race was split in to 2, three or two reds next to each other at one end, and then at the other we had 2 yellows next to each other. Crackin!!
Hil was the most consistent in this one and took her 2nd win of the day, I snook the last final spot.

Final - Dunc, myself and Y jon next to each other – that was a tight squeeze!! Myself and Dunc made the most of these starts, Y Jon was a little more cautious in his approach. Hil and Stew were also seeded next to each other – the first couple of lanes were low scoring!! I never guess why!!!
Dunc was the most consistent in this one and took a fine win by 5 points from myself in second. Nige was 3rd, Y Jon 4th, Stew 5th and Hil took up the tail.
A good race.

GN - Hectic, that’s I can say!!! One of the best races of the day, loads of action and good old fashioned GN racing.
Richard made the most of his graded position, Y Jon was the strongest finalist, getting some good scores in. Pat was also finding his touch. In the end it was Richard who took the win, followed by Y Jon and Pat.

Caravan – We had a caravan race – I will leave you to look at the pics and hopefully the video footage that Pete took. Better than words I can tell you. Pat took the win in this one for the record!!!

A cracking first meeting back at Denton. The GN championship will see Richard and Y Jon with the best starts, as defending champ, a 6th place for me isn’t the best. Still its early days yet.
I really enjoyed this meeting and I wish a special thanks to all that raced – you made it ladies and gents.
Great food as usual from my folks – thanks!!!

Roll on the standard cars at the next meeting in 2 weeks. 31st October – Halloween fun!!! Fancy dress is optional!!! Chris 24!!!

Keep smiling
