Hi Guys,

 

It was a record breaking night at Armchair Racer last night. We had 13 competitors that turned up for round 6 of both the Slot It and Plafit Rounds. John VD won the Slot It Class with a record breaking lap score of 151 laps with he’s new Lancia LC2. John A won the Plafit Class also with a record breaking lap score of 161 laps.

Thanks for the prompt update, Jase!

 

Really dig those spreadsheets...

 

I was feeling a bit down about my effort last night - till I saw I somehow managed the 3rd fastest lap with the Nascars....


Cheers,

 

Tony.

 

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

Hi All

 

12 competitors turned up to race at Armchair on Wednesday Night. 3 of the competitors were new to racing which included Iggy M, Andrew M and Stephen. They all drove very solid mixing it with the regulars in some of the heats.

 

Round 8 of the SCX GT round was taken out by Iggy M taking advantage of the Magnet to cruse his BMW M3 to the top spot of the podium. Ian R put in a strong performance with his supercharged Chevrolet Corvette taking 2nd place and John A grapping a vital 3rd place to close the gap in the overall championship.

 

In the NASCAR Host Class, John A was in a class of his own blitzing the field by 4 Laps. Jason B managed to pip John VD on the last lap to finish 2nd Place.

Hi All

 

16 competitors turned up to race one last time at Armchair for 2012. The night’s classes consisted of Round 11 of both the Slot It and Plafit Series.

 

Going into the night, the Overall Championship was only separated by 2 points with John VD just having the edge over John A thus far. With another 50 points on offer, it came down to who could hold the nerves.

 

In the Slot It Class, a costly false start from John VD gave the early upper hand to John A in which would be hard to beat. John VD tried to close the gap but in the end John A managed to keep the car straight to take his 9th win of the year as well as the championship lead with 1 race remaining. Slot it Champion John VD came in second to keep the championship alive, now 3 points behind John A, with Nigel B finishing in a Solid 3rd place.

 

The last race of the season was a thriller with lots of close fought battles with cars coming off like missiles wiping out fellow competitors. With a new top and lots of practice John VD’s new Ferrari Enzo was quick off the mark. John A however was lurking in the rear view mirror for most of the race. Unfortunately some costly crashes that unfolded on the track seemed to attract John A’s car, making him unable to get that bonus lap point. In the End it was John VD who was victorious winning by a whopping 6 laps over John A, with Jimmy claiming another Plafit Podium result.

 

In the end, the overall point score gap staid the same with John VD becoming the 2012 Armchair Racer Club Champion on 557 laps, 2 points in front of John A with 555 points. Jason B managed to finish in 3rd With 485 points, 72 points behind the champion.

 

Below is the full results from Wednesday night’s race – 28th November 2012

 

Race 1 - Slot It Class (Any Slot It Race Car)

Non Magnet - Any Modification (Only Slot It Parts Only and Car must weigh under 100 grams of Downforce on Magnet Marshall)
