Our May digital evening saw another great turnout of twenty-

Simon had designed a particularly excellent track for our May Digital Wednesday.
It looked rather good on paper and proved even better in the flesh -
Nascar team race
Stage One: 20 minutes
We eased everyone back into digital racing and the RCS64 software with a fuel-
The battle between the top two had left the other teams well adrift. Jerome's Jets
and Corey's Team finished on 60 laps, Ryan's Fish 'n' Chippy were on 59 and Aiden's
Jolly Hockey Sticks had been the most rusty of the pack, finishing on a shameful
57 laps -
Stage Two: 40 minutes
With the addition of the tyre-
In the end, Anglo-
Stage Three: 60 minutes
Going into the final twenty minutes, Anglo-
This time we added a damp, drying track to the complex web of RCS64 simulations -
The track had completely dried just before the twelve minute mark, all six teams
correctly anticipating the change -
After the second driver change, Anglo-
Moving into the final five minutes, Oliver's Rockets had overtaken Fish 'n' Chippy
into a clear second place -
Rather than Mike challenging for the lead, Alex was pulling Anglo-
That gave Jonathon, Jean and Alex a thumping overall win, eight laps ahead of Oliver's
Rockets. Jolly Hockey Sticks won the tussle for third by four laps, with Fish 'n'
Chippy maintaining their slender one-
We waved goodbye to Peter, Jerome and Andy Phillips and welcomed Steve to make up
a perfect ten pairs for the Trans-
The first qualifying heat looked quick. Oliver and Ryan were the class of the field,
their 1970 Camaro newly-
A power issue into turn two made the start of the second qualifying heat a bit challenging.
The fault was quickly sorted and the drivers soon got into the groove. It was fast.
Mike D and Jean piloted the big Ford Falcon XB into pole position with a massive
37.75 laps. March's Trans-
The consolation race was the usual five minutes of mayhem. Simon and Matthew took
a small advantage over Aiden and Terry, with Daniel and Mike showing good form in
Stephen's Cougar. Paul's Camaro was going better, but definitely needs decent rear
tyres. That was the order at the end -
That just left the Trans-
After those first stops, Jonathon had closed right up on Jean and Ash was up to third.
Any mistakes were costly, so a communication mix-
With pit stops and driver changes completed, Alex was now in control of the race, Mike and Ryan in hot pursuit and Andy not far behind in fourth. Graham and Neil both had work to do to get back in the race.
Alex replicated Jonathon's smooth, error-
The lead for Alex was over a lap with a minute and a half to go. Ryan dived into
the pits from second and a long stop dropped the #5 Camaro back to fourth. Mike was
looking marginal on fuel and chose to splash and dash. Andy took second, but was
concentrating more on his fuel levels than driving hard. A last-
Huge congratulations to Alex and Jonathon on their momentous Trans-
A big thank you to everyone who took part in another excellent evening of digital
racing at the Barn. Special thanks, as always, goes to the set-
