A stormy Halloween night saw the first team endurance race at WHO. We'd wanted to try this format for a while and the new Micro Scalextric championship gave us the perfect opportunity.
With some great Halloween costumes on show, racers were divided up into six teams
of three -
The teams chose Halloween-
The Gutter Lane Gargoyles (Simon, Callum and Mike) were the first to show some form with a big score on red lane. Behind them it was very close. In fact, it was amazing to see how close it remained throughout the night.
With a simple track -
Although Dying to Win (Dave, Gareth and Tyler) took over top spot after the second stint, the Gargoyles were back in the lead with fifteen minutes to go.
Behind them, Slot Psychos (Andrew, Alex and Andy) were just ten laps behind and would
set a good score in white, putting pressure on the Gargoyles to do well in blue -
Fighting it out for third place were Dying to Win, Werewheels (Duncan, Josh and Stephen)
and Scarelextrics (John, Darren and Darren) -
It was Scarelextrics who went from fifth to third, just one and a half laps ahead
of Werewheels and Dying to Win another three laps back in fifth -
Yummie Mummies (Jonah, Hannah and Paul) had hung on in the early stages, but gradually got dropped from the pack. They learned a lot for next time and had a lot of fun!
So, what about the top two? The pressure was certainly on the Gargoyles, but Mike and Simon skilfully set up Callum to bring home the win with a minute to spare.
Congratulations to all three Gargoyles for peerless teamwork and great individual
