Many thanks to those who worked on my car again to get it running. It would appear that I may have mixed up two sets of urethanes I aquired from Phil, which had different cure rates. :blink:

The front guide problem ( copper strips originally glued down,as were the rear tyres),has been an ongoing concern even with some good repair work done previously by Lenny Broke (thx again).

Hopefully the car is now settled enough to complete the series, and I look forward with renewed interest to see if it can climb up the standings from here on. :unsure:

Good to see you enjoyed the round complete with some new faces, which can give a draught of fresh air to to the proceedings...Race on.. :)

The round 1 results don't match your final results table.

Embers time has smallnails time for round 1
Will have to go back and have a look at the sheets, there were a couple of typo's. I couldn't print off the Timer PC. Both Ben_M & myself did it manually. SO looks like results are provisional at this stage, Unfortunately Im heading out right now but will recheck and post in the morning - Might have been that Pear Cider I had for lunch :blink:

Has now been corrected (Post #29) All the stages were correct but I had posted the "Cut & Paste" version and not the "Master". All the times were there they just didn't match the right names :unsure: . New Third Place. Phil (sorry Manic)

Alas, that is a bit more realistic. Though on the bright side I can say... Whoohooo... Not last for this round (for a change).
Computers. They'll never catch on.

While I was correcting the addition of the three stages I found some chicks without Silicone for Lenny Broke :P
Posted Image
Then I noticed the girls still wanted to have fun
Posted Image
and some one had stuck up some posters
Posted Image
So I thought what the heck.
Posted Image
After all that I notice the blokes don't even take notice of the girls (except for the young boys)
Posted Image

As per the previous post the final summary has been corrected (stages were correct)and the official winners were Tore (356Speedster) 2nd Allan (Lenny Broke) and 3rd Phil K.
Posted Image

Tore also won the Mountain Sprint - 10 laps of the Mt Panorama Race Circuit and the Special Stage and the Enduro ;)
Posted Image
Fastest lap for the mountain sprint was 6.377 by Slo1quick
Fastest lap for the Rally X Circuit was 29.935 by 356Speedster

A big thanks to the "team" of helpers for what was a marathon

Firstly Yngwie for making a special trip to replace the timing PC then my good lovely and daughter for the food (lunch & dinner.

We had a very professional team of marshals and drivers. Craig (teamredracing) who drove all the cars in the Special Stage, Kai (Mohawk)For driving all cars in the Mountain Sprint then Viv (Old Slot) and Devious (Dave) for doing warm up laps for each car and Ben_M for the timing/checking and great Pics, all doing a great job at marshaling when not driving.

Oh! I nearly forgot Gazza for dropping in around lunch time (during his break) and fixing the timing issue.

Thanks again for the massive help guys.

IMO this years group of proxy rally cars were the best overall that I have been involved with. On my track there were no "dogs" and I must say I had heaps of fun driving.

Some more pics etc when I get time between the family/holidays thingies.

Thanks to Mel, Devious, Oldslot,Ben, Mohawk & Craig for running this round. Rally proxies with 30 odd cars are certainly a big event to run, so well done guys.
Well done to the podium winners also.
I agree with Mel, this years field is the best overall in the 4 years that I have hosted rounds; no "dogs" in this lot.

That's SOM (Son Of Max, my old Rotwieler). He was human :P

SOM can sniff out Silicone tyres and WD40. And if he doesn't like the car . . . .

This car (BRK's Team Slot Alpine) certainly took my fancy as to the best looking car in the group on my track. And it was an unanimous vote of all marshals and drivers.Posted Image

And with a view of the unfinished drain, unfinished bridge and unfinished cafe in the RH background - thanks Ben :P

Great choice BRK

Wow, Wow and Wow.... ^_^

Just stumbled out of bed in the middle of the night after being down with 39 in fever since new years eve, to find that my Porsche is now leading the series!!! Fantastic...

Thanks to all for a very exciting series and thanks to Mel for a very entertaining round. It's a bit straining to read through it all with a headache, so thanks for supplying pics that is easy on the eye, but there is more to a well balanced package than just "bumps" :)

Posted Image

Back to bed now, while you check out the Google translate function :) I'm looking forward to read through the previous rounds later.

BTW: Mel and Gary, as soon as I'm on my feet again I'll look for the shipping receipt for the "SCX package" so we can check the tracking number. Hopefully they will arrive during this or at latest next week, unless it's already there?

We taught him not to jump. Not good for a Rottie's back legs. So I had to do the checking on anything over 3' :P
