How late is late Dave?

Could we insert you the last driver in a rota, so that you aren’t needed till 6:30 or so for first drive?

Failing that, you also have some new fellas to meet 

I have no idea at all Mark, I'll be back when I get back that's all I know

Sorry I didn't make it out for the big event, I didn't get back from Masterton until 6.45.

It would have been 8 by the time I got out there and after a 12hr day with 6 of those behind the wheel I was just to tied

Real shame that happened Dave. Was a great night of racing. We had two others away, and one other newbie L8n who just came to watch - but still had 4x 4 man teams.

Race Catering excelled her own high standards (please thank her Mac), the verbal biffo, gloating and empty threats were exceptional, and a good time was had by all

Tomorrow (Saturday), Oakland Raceway will be open 9:30 until midday for anyone wanting track test time, use of my bench tools/lathes etc and/or any assistance in setting up cars.

BYO morning snacks if you want any, I’ll supply the liquified caffeine.

Thanks Mac and Mike for an awesome event. And of course to your better halfs for the catering. The cars were as smooth as the banter and what a turnout. 
Slotcar racing was the winner on the night.

The Mighty Pie Bone 400 has been run and won. What a great night, with 18 nerds on site to duke it out for the most coveted trophy in Hawke's Bay performance slot car racing.

Gloat was on the line, but Rossco came fully prepared should the Slot Gods not smile his way.

The shed was full. The track was clean and fast. And 4 race-prepped Revoslots were on the start line

Even Munter graced us with his presence. What a treat! As always he was well dressed, looking fit and perfectly groomed; the epitome of the Gentleman Slot Racer.

On the other hand....

And then there was this...

Shout out to the the mighty Pie Bone for supplying the cars and for Gummy Tuners sponsoring the racing additives. The Revoslots were perfect for this sort of event. Fast and stable and easy to keep in the groove. I reckon that the driver standard was the best I have seen on a club night on my track.  

Shout out to Race Catering for another stellar effort keeping the carbs up during 3 hours of door to door racing.

Shoutout to the UPS I nicked from the house PC that may have prevented TrackMate from crashing. 

In the end the Gloat went to Team Bingagogo. Congrats to Bingo, Bigger Bing, Snake and Pat for stacking their team more than ours. They led from the get go - and never looked like losing. I have never seen Bingo happier!

And then there's this guy...

This hairy little prick raced like a demon and claimed fastest laps on 3 of the 4 lanes - despite widespread verbal abuse from all angles. What an effort! I spent half my night trying to get inside his head, but should have known that mind-games are no good when you're dealing with someone with limited intelligence. I need a new strategy. 

 Thanks again for fronting on a cold winter's night, boys. That was one of the great nights. Let's do it again next year.

Yes sir... an excellent evening’s entertainment. 
 

and that is “munter” in lowercase, I don’t want to rise above my station.

 

My thanks to our patron, Te bone and host Sir Mac for organising a great affair.

 I await next year’s event with great anticipation.

Brilliant night of racing and banter in Mac's slotcave. The best team won with a very high standard of banter and keeping it in the slot. Was great to be back where it all started racing with the slotjockies you have all become. Thanks for keeping the Piebone 400 alive and fizzing. Chur bro's

Yep. What a night!

A Big Thank You to Da Bone and Mac as well as my Bash Brother.

The victuals were very tasty and overflowing!

Three hours of hard out racing. Who would ever complain?

BTW  Congratulations to The Victors! (maybe even that reptile?)
