Nice run down Lenny. Must be Nana nap time so you've got the strength for the next stage.

Congrats for stage win to Tom&Cam.

Well done to the winners - well impressed with my car, 6th on the Prologue and then 15th, just seems to be getting better and better as the stages go on. Was in the top 5-6 lap times which is very, very encouraging.

And I love that fact that Rick picks my car as the roughie, that's why roughies are roughies, they have very little chance of winning.

Thanks for running the round Lenny, looking foward to the next stage....

It's probably safer for everyone if he doesn't know. Don't you think?

Make sure you wear the ice vest Lenny. Must be 40C in that tin shed. Good luck with it.

Just got carried away after watching the V8SC.

It was more than that today I reckon <_<

BTW if any one was concerned about the cars being out in the shed with the weather we've had here these last few days, don't worry, they were brought into the house each night at the end of activities.

Hi All
Stage 2 is just about to begin, see y6ou out the other end.
this stage will be revrse direction to Stage 1. I did about 200 laps earlier with my car from last years series so the track surface should good to go, best laps were in the low 8.2's.

Cheers Alan

Well its all done and dusted and I'm sitting here having sip on one of the Cooper family's best before I head of to noddy land.
all I will say is it's close for the top step, result later this morning.

Thanks for letting me play with your toys Kiddies

Alan

Here's the results for Stage 2

errata
best lap for Lenny Broke- 8.144


Well the long journey is over and we have a result. Well done to Stig and the Lads on there podium positions.
With the track running in the opposite direction, there was a different feel to the stage. I don't know what could be the cause but the most of the cars felt a lot more stable to drive. With the the corners being predominately right handed there was less tipping by a number of cars. I suspect that the torque reaction of the motors may have something to do with it <_<
I'll ad some further comment after I've posted the final results and had bit of think about it all

And Here's the Final standings for Round 3 of the OzRally Proxy Series Round 3.
Congratulations to Tom and Cam for a great win here with a steady run ina nicely set up little car, by no means the fastest one but very consistent to drive and just stayed in the slot. Well done Lads Thats's one up ya Grandad <_<
Also well done to The Stig, for Third, that old Zed is a top car considering it's an original 70's scalex.

I'll post some more thought here a bit later.

Hi Jason
It's not getting slower at all.
It's a great little package mechanically, very smooth and good power . what I found was that you could get a run going and build up a bit of speed but it would get unsettled at some point and deslot. either when it clipped the scenery or on the run down the hill it would slide out on the last wiggle and fall off the edge. Unfortunately I de-slotted a couple of times in spots that took some time to recover the car and get going again . As I was on my own I was having to drive and marshal. That's what cost most of the time for a number of cars yours included. All I could do was try my best.

It might be a nice looking Porsche,but it must be one crap car i built . Going by the lap times the car has'nt gone past number 25 position the last 2 rounds.

Well done Tom and Cam for your win <_<

HI Shane

To be honest the only thing letting your car down is the Motor. The NC-8 isn't the best motor around. It just isn't fast enough, yours was particularly slow on this stage. the run onto the straight was out of the hairpin so it didn't get the run up it got from exiting the faster corner going the other way. also it was slower climbing the rise to the back straight / wiggle. I lost it a couple of times coming down there trying to keep some speed up and it slide off the edge. I have to reach across to the back of the table to get to cars that go off there.
Back to the motor though I reckon a geared down scelex or BWANC1 would have been a better choice.

Cheers Alan


To All

I'm going to do a final report shortly, but I want to have a bit of a spell from this for an hour or so as I'm a bit "proxied" out at the moment.

Cheers Alan

Well done Tom & Cam, Lenny and The Stig for you podium finishes.

Thanks for hosting Alan in what wouldn't have been the most comfortable of conditions. It certainly takes some time to get through all the cars.
