Twenty racers joined us for the first Wednesday evening event of the autumn. We were
delighted to welcome back Max, Al, Simon and Gillian for their second visits to the
Barn. The track was inspired by both the Mexico City Grand Prix circuit and Zolder
in Belgium -
On the grid were two Tycos and eighteen Mega-
At the halfway point, Keith led the way -
For the second pair of heats, those running in red and blue were certainly looking
to climb up the field. There were some big scores -
Gillian and Max lined up in blue and red for the G final. It was a competitive race, interspersed with the odd crash or two. Max led from the early stages, pulling out a two lap lead by half way. The gap remained pretty constant through the second minute, Max stretching it to two and three quarter laps at the end. Gillian had the fastest lap though...
Max stepped up into yellow lane in the F final. It was a messy start -
Duncan was the last Tyco standing in the E final and so had wrapped up the F1 Classic
Cup win. His car was another one left stranded on the line, which put him back in
third after 30 seconds, just ahead of Simon R in white. At the front, Gareth led
the way -
Gareth moved along into white for the D final and was up against Stephen, Oliver and Mike McCann. Both Mike and Gareth crashed on the first lap, Stephen in blue leading Oliver in red. Stephen was cruising away, lapping Oliver before half distance. Gareth was snapping at Oliver's heels, just a quarter of a second behind after a minute. Gareth soon got past, but then dropped back again as Oliver found some consistent pace and Gareth spent more time off track than he would have liked. Stephen finished a lap ahead of Oliver, Gareth a lap and half further back and Mike two laps adrift.
It was Matthew and Mike Dadson who were up against Daniel and Stephen in the C final.
Matthew and Stephen made the best starts, Mike working himself up into second at
a quarter distance. That's how it stayed at halfway -
Mike's good fortune put him into white in the B final. Terry had red, Andy blue and Peter yellow. Mike didn't get off to a great start, but the other three were very close, separated by just over two seconds at a quarter distance. Terry led the way and Peter got past Andy. By halfway, Andy was three seconds behind Terry and just ahead of Peter. Mike was two laps back. Andy closed the gap a little and Peter fell back, but it ended with Terry, Andy and Peter finishing in that order and covered by just over a lap. A very close race.
Terry's win gave us the top three in the Formula One championship table together
in the A final -
Deborah was doing all she could to hold on to the lead, but Keith was slowly chipping
away at the gap -
Congratulations to our winners -
