Clubman Cars Racing


6 of us to race tonight. The cars were a bit 'up & down' so only 1 PB and that was Woody on Orange lane. Chris turned in the most consistent set and ran out overall winner with 188.67, some 4 laps or so ahead of Woody in 2nd and Nick 3rd. When the handicaps are applied it was quite close with the top 4 separated by just 3 laps or so with Geoff running out the winner from Woody, Nick and Chris. Kev and Keith were both a bit off their normal pace so were 5th and 6th respectively.

Production Saloon

On to Production Saloon....
Data needs scrutinising as Woody was consistently going under minimum lap time, set at 2.9 seconds.....

Sports/GT


Sports/GT tonight and we had 5 drivers to race. The intention was to run normal qualifying and then 2 finals which would probably turn out to be Chris/Woody in the A with Wasp power and Nick, Kev and Geoff in the B with Falcon power. With plenty of time we decided to run 5 minute segments in the finals.
It didn't quite turn out as intended as after setting up the finals, Kev forgot to set the 2 groups, so we ended up with a mixed segmented race with 5 drivers and 3 'dummies' to make 8 segments.
The racing wasn't too bad and there were some good races, particularly between Nick and Kev. Chris and Woody were obviously quicker than the other 3 so were racing for 1st and 2nd places. Woody finished his 4 segs first and set a target for Chris and Chris duly obliged to take the win by some 6 1/2 laps.
Meanwhile Nick and Kev were having a great battle. They were both in the last 2 races and were never more than a lap or 2 apart with Kev just in front. Nick was probably a bit quicker and trying hard to catch Kev who was driving at a steady pace. Nick got quite close at times but 'offs' at crucial times meant he couldn't quite make it an ended up just under a lap behind Kev, great stuff !! Geoff drove a decent set of 4 and finished up some 14 laps behind Nick.

A quite enjoyable night's racing was topped off at the New Inn for a couple of shandies.

Group 12 Saloon

RC data.
And some decent Group 12 Saloon racing. Chris and Woody on good form after the weekend at the Nats, taking the top 2 slots with Nick taking 3rd spot, with a borrowed car. Keith's chassis broke during his run on Purple but Kev stepped in and lent him his spare. Unfortunately for Kev this backfired as his tyres ran out but he couldn't swap to a different set because Keith was using them ☹️ and Keith beat him to 2nd spot in the B final!!!! Good to see Corky back, a bit down on pace but looking OK.

In the A final it was a routine win for Chris but Nick ran him pretty close, just a couple of laps back. Woody had a car issue and didn't finish.

To top off a good night's racing we trotted off to the New Inn for a couple of shandies.
