WHO Mod -
With a race either side of the Easter weekend, the start of April promised to be
Another excellent turn-
Simon's track was most definitely huge and really enjoyable to drive. There were plenty of fast flowing sections, but some tricky chicanes that slowed the cars down and demanded precision to avoid crashing but not to lose too much momentum.
To begin with it was the inside yellow lane that was catching people out, but by the end of the night, most racers would be confident enough to win from any lane.
After the heats, some had left themselves plenty to do in the finals, but our top
three were Mike, Ned and John -
The I final head-
Deborah stepped up to yellow lane in the H final and delivered the performance of the evening so far. Her duel with Paul was intense. As the pressure built in the closing stages it was Deborah who held her nerve and beat Paul by just under a lap. Hayley came in third and Richard S in fourth.
Would Deborah's practice in yellow pay off in the G final? She was up against two
quick Mod cars in Aaron's on-
Deborah's irresistible rise was thrown a curve ball in the F final by giving her
white lane. Alex had picked yellow lane -
The E final saw a good battle between Thomas and his cousin Tyler, with Tyler coming out on top. That turned out to be for third place as ahead of them, Jamie successfully held off Duncan for the win. Duncan was clearly disappointed to miss out on the chance to battle for the top Tuners position.
Simon had a very quick Tuners Super-
The C final was another cracker. Simon stepped up into white lane and put on an incredible
show, taking the race to Keith, Corey and Neil's Mod cars. The margins throughout
the race were miniscule and the cars were visibly faster than what had come before.
If Simon has avoided a couple of late crashes, he would have probably won, but Corey
got ahead and stayed there as the chequered flag ended the race. The top three -
Tony has won the opening WHO Mod round in January, but was back in the B final this time, qualifying fifth, behind Andy. With Mike Mc and Corey also in the mix, Tony needed a good two minutes to put him back in contention for the race winner's medal. Despite Andy running him close for the first minute, Tony comfortably did the business. A big crash and lost axle put Andy back in third, but he fought back to beat Mike and Corey, who finished just a few inches apart.
Mike D had qualified his Viper car on pole in the A final, the first competitive appearance for the new chassis at WHO. Could he convert that into a win? Mike made a perfect getaway, leaving a certain amount of mayhem behind him with John, Ned and Tony all wrecking their chances to stay in touch. All three had the cars to fight back, but could any of them string together a recovery?
It was Tony who responded. Eyes out on stalks, he ate into Mike's lead in an attempt
to make it three WHO Mod wins in a row. The two traded fast laps and neither of them
blinked. As time started to run out, Tony made one last desperate charge. Sadly for
him, it didn't pay off -
Congratulations to Mike on his third win of 2015 and for taking Viper Scale Racing
into victory lane for the first time at the Barn. Well done to Ned for a great performance
with his dad's usual race car and thanks to everyone for making it such an excellent
night of high-
Special mentions go to Stephen, who did the loin's share of race control, and to Simon for possibly his best track design so far. Thank you chaps!
