Meeting Report - Sunday 14th January 2007

Good to be back!!!
This was the first meeting since the 31st October, it had been a while and it was well worth it.
A healthy and easy to sort, 12 drivers we here, including Andy #28, who was returning back to the raceways after a few years away. I think he last raced about 10-15 years ago!

So straight in to.
Heat 1 - Dan, Gary, Jane, Andy, Hil and Pete took to the track. Andy had a nice lane 4 start and he started quite steadily and took his time. It was Dan who was flying in this – he took up a healthy lead by half way. Gary and Jane were having a fun race – they raced next to each other about 3 times all day – by the 3rd time I think divorce papers were being filed!!! hehe. Hil was going well, and Pete too. Dan looked like a cert for the win, Gary looked good for 2nd. However it all went a bit wrong on the last lanes. Dan struggled on the outer lane and just managed 2 points. Gary and Jane were off playing in the chicane, and that meant Andy quietly slipped in to take the win. Dan managed 2nd, by eat wins over Hil who was 3rd. A cracking race.

Heat 2 - Me and my dad were having fun, he got me with a cracking hit – Pat joked “no team orders then?” Certainly not Pat!!! hehe. Richard and Cath were also having fun – at one stage Richard told Cath she wasn’t coming to next meeting, why? she asked – cause im not taking her! Class! Dunc and Pat also had their moments! By half way it was any body’s race – however they do say cream rises to the top – Dunc won from Richard 2nd. Another good race.

Consi time - I started this one strong – I wanted to try and make the final. I made the most of lane 1 and scored well. Pat, Pete and Hil were also scoring quite well. Dave was also back in the swing in this one – he scored well and took a few wins. Gary came on track half way through – he started well too, plenty of strong wins and 2nds. Gary also started to use the thing on the end of his car – something that I get shouted out for not using. In the end I had made the strongest start and took the win. 2nd was a bit closer, Gary pipped Cath by heat wins and my dad by a point. Gary – use the bumper more often sir – you get in to the final! Hey ive got nothing to talk about!!! hehe
A good race.

Final time - Well we had 4 reds, a blue and a white. Guess who started the best???
Yes – Andy really came in to his own here and was flying!! The reds and blues didn’t help each other though – most of the time they were knocking 7 bells out of each other and not even finishing!! Great racing though! Dan and Richard were flying – both using the bumper when required. Dunc was also ruthless with the bumper – shifting the other cars with ease! In the end Andy took a fine win – well done sir. Richard took a strong 2nd, followed by Dan, Gary, Dunc and Me.

GN time - One of the races of the night – for me anyway! There were bumpers galore in this one! Cars flying every where, but with some excellent racing in between. As normal the non finalists made the most of their advantage from the line. Pete and Hil enjoyed the clearer track to score well. At the back the finalists were all over each other (again). Sometimes not making a full lap!! crackin!! Myself and Dunc were especially guilty – we didn’t score well though!!!! Pete made up for a quite start and took the win, Hil a deserved 2nd. Pat got a strong 3rd.

Caravan race - Can’t really say too much about these – apart from fantastic!!!! Great racing – great hits! There should be some cracking pictures to put up on the site. For the record – Mr Osbourne took the win – he got plenty of stick too!!! Still he didn’t beat Dans record 21 score a few meetings back!!!
Saying that – Dan scored a big fat zero in this caravan race – nice one!!!

Helter Skelter - We were flying through the races so I added an extra Helter Skelter race – all from blue with no rules! Crazy!!! Great race with some good and daft moves!! Everybody raced with a smile on their faces. A few broken cars too. For the record (again) Andy took his 3rd win of the night. He cleared out my sweets!!

Right that’s it for another meeting.

Keep checking the forum for updates about the track and the next meeting.

Thanks to all racers for making this a cracking days racing.
Thanks also to my dad for the food – my mum was out with Rach today.

Keep smiling – enjoy your racing
