WHO Nascar -
Having missed the worst of the threatened 'big freeze', we marked the fifth anniversary
of the club with a suitably cool birthday cake. The remaining 'Class of Feb 2010'
We had a excellent twenty-
There were a few new liveries on show and more promised for later in season, when
Pattos produces the first decals for the 2015 Sprint Cup season. We also expect to
see Racemasters new Ford Fusion and Chevy Impala bodies on the grid -
After practice and a pause for the cake-
Right from the off, there were some exciting battles and big totals on the scoreboard. Duncan set the early pace and Tony was the first over 40 laps with a huge 45.60 in red lane. However, after the first pairs of heats were run, we had a top three of Mike, Andy and John.
On the second run-
At the front, Darren failed to break into the A final places, but looked to have the fastest car on the track and would still be competing for the win, as long as he could hold off the impressive Duncan and Tony in the B final.
The I final saw a good win for Ewan who drove Darren's spare Super-
Ewan was obviously liking his new wheels, as he squeezed ahead of his brother Ryan
in the H final and took a second step-
Ewan's charge came to an end in the G final, but he nearly did it again in white
lane. Instead, Keith got away and kept out of trouble, beating Debra (who'd out-
The F final was the race of the night with Jamie, Barry, Paul and Keith scrapping for the win throughout. A spate of offs near the end saw Jamie's car on the floor, throwing away his chance of winning and it was Paul that held his nerve and gave him a very satisfying win ahead of Barry. Jamie limped home third, just ahead of Keith.
Paul stepped up to the E final, but was blown away by Richard Hart, Aaron and Jonah. Richard had got better and better through the evening, learning how to race on an oval for the first time. He took the win, but not without a strong challenge from Jonah, with Aaron dropping back to third.
Ned had a troublesome set of heats, but he was on fire in the D final, absolutely wiping the floor with Mike McCann, Richard and Tyler who had an excellent battle amongst themselves, ending up in that order.
Ned also made short shrift of the C final, although Simon did all he could to stay in touch. Having qualified as top juniors, Stephen and Daniel were truly disappointed to see the medal slip from their grasp. Stephen won the battle of the twins, but that was no consolation.
The B final line-
It was a late finish at the Barn, but there was still a crowd to watch the A final.
The previous eight finals had been won from blue, white or yellow lane, but pole-
It was a stunning start to the race, with Mike opening up a lead of no more than
a couple of yards and the other three following each other nose-
Thinking we were in for an unusually clean A final, it all unravelled at the halfway
mark when Darren and John began pushing too hard to catch back up after brief offs.
That left Mike leading Andy by a lap, but then a sideways red or orange car on the
main straight left John and Andy's Super-
Mike drove carefully to avoid the mayhem and moved his Dupont Chevy into an unassailable
lead. As Darren and John continued to over-
Congrats to Mike on a dominating performance throughout the evening. Well done to Ned who came good after a shaky start and against a very competitive junior field.
A big thanks to everyone who made it such a good night, especially to Stephen and
Daniel who ran race control for the entire evening. It was also great to see Gareth
at the Barn for the first time in 2015 -
Finally, thank you to everyone who has contributed to Worthing HO Racing during our first five years. The time has flown, but we have achieved loads together and have created something very special here at the Barn.
