The first round of heats saw some mixed scores. At the front, it was three Super-
The second round saw improvements all round (well, mostly) with Alex challenging Stephen for the junior honours and Ewan not far off. At the front Mike claimed pole position, two laps ahead of John, with Andy a further lap adrift.
Aaron was a bit surprised to find himself in the H final and simply blew away Corey and Hayley to score an impressive 35 laps in blue lane.
Stepping up to the generally unfavoured yellow lane, Aaron did it again and won the G final! This time it was much closer, with Paul, Barry and Callum right on his pace. But it was Aaron who stayed on the track and eventually won by two laps.
Could Aaron do it again? He certainly had a fast car, but in an exciting and scrappy race, it was Mike McCann who kept his nose clean in white lane and finished some distance ahead of Bob and Aaron, with Tony's disappointing evening finishing with fourth place in the F final.
Mike didn't click with yellow lane and trailed in fourth in the E final. Ahead of
him, an awesome three-

If the battle for the C final was good, then the B final was even better. Richard had stepped up to join Duncan, Keith and Simon. The latter two had the fastest cars and set the pace, but the Skelt brothers stayed in contention for as long as they could. As the clock ran down, Simon was leading Keith, but just could not shake him off. Then a catastrophic off for Simon at Turn One let Keith through and that was that. Behind them, Richard was top Skelt of the night, a whole three laps ahead of Duncan.
The A final was a worthy climax to an excellent night's racing. Mike D jumped into
the lead from the start, but simply could not shake Andy of his tail -
With under 30 seconds to go, Mike could not afford an off and Andy started to push
a little more to reduce the gap. Who would crack first? Mike held it together and
it was Andy who overcooked it at the tight Turn Three. That gave Mike a winning margin
of a lap and a half -
Mike's average lap time was 2.40 seconds and his fastest 2.33 -
Congratulations to all our final winners, plus our top junior, top Rookie, top Skelt etc. It was a fantastically fast, fun and fiercely competitive evening's racing. Thanks to all who set up, ran race control, marshalled and packed away.
Next up is Micro Scalextric in two weeks time.
