It was an action-
First up was round ten of the BTCC championship. With eleven on the grid, there'd
only be one step-
The Club Car Rotation saw two new Scalextric GT cars join the grid and a very close
championship showdown -
The championship leaders were only focusing on each other's results and matched each
other heat, by heat. Andy finished with 11.5 laps, leaving Jonathon a target of 12
laps. It was possible, but the pressure got the better of the youngster. When the
scores were added up, the race win was tied -
The winners went home with copies of Slot Car Magazine, who also donated a superb
Carrera Red Bull F1 car to Jonathon -
The second BTCC race rounded off the morning. This time Jerome grabbed the step up
and joined an incredibly close four-
That left Alex twenty points behind Gary in the BTCC table. A DNS for Gary and a win plus fastest lap for Alex was the only way Gary could lose the championship in the final race at the end of the afternoon. But now it was time for one of Simon's famous WHO lunches...
We had a trial run of our 2019 Slot.it Group C sprint format after lunch. It was a fantastic race with Gary showing his class. Graham was a solid second, just ahead of Mike. With a couple of tweaks, we should have a very exciting series to start the Saturday afternoons next year.
Barry and Dave joined us for Goodwood, one of eight pairs. They shared Andy's Carrera Ferrari. Simon had a new Fly Lola T70 MkIII on the grid and Graham's Scalextric Ford MkIV made its debut. We ran the St Mary's format, three heats giving each pair two lots of ten minutes.
On its last scheduled appearance, Alex's Fly Ferrari 250 GTO won the race -
Maybe we'd been a bit over-
The DiSCA GT4 Trophy team race was trimmed to 30 minutes and we had a stunning field
of twelve cars that had to qualify to make the six car grid. The big race featured
a Porsche, three Aston Martins, a McLaren and a Mercedes -
The close finish between fourth and fifth place gave Ash a brilliant WHO/digital
GT4 Trophy championship win -
That left one last race of 2018 at the Barn. The third BTCC race was the reverse
grid. Two step ups were available after Dean had to head home. Gary and Graham grabbed
those places in the A final, which saw another frantic and exciting race -
Gary claimed a fantastic BTCC championship win, despite missing the Saturday in November.
Huge congratulations to all our race winners and champions and big thanks to everyone
who has taken part in our digital racing this year. It has been a brilliant season
of racing, with our Digital Saturdays evolving into something really special. We
hope to continue tweaking the format to make them even better next year. Massive
thanks to Mike D for his inspiration and his wonderful digital kit -
