"Who's centre of shot on that nausea inducing bridge?"

Don't know Embs, but I'm right behind them.... :lol:

Believe me you have to have your wits about you going over that bridge as there are some tight turns as you reach the level part of the stage.

Shame that car 35 didn't finish as high up as in the practice run on Martyn's track....and I normally do OK on Killarney - oh well, two stages to go!

Well done to the top guys.

Cheers
Dave

Could always be worse Gazza! :D :D

Not talking about the finish position, talking about the fact that it has been posted on that other place!!!!!

Hopefully the posting time for Stage 2 will be around the same time 10pm as Stage 1.

I'm also curious about the ******'s - 11 cars marked for some reason????

I'm not looking forward to Stage 2/3 results based on the initial comments, it could be time to start free-falling. WHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.................

*s are for round hosts. It was on the timesheet I copied from round 1 to make my time sheet. Bit of a up-cock on posting elsewhere, sorry guys, wont happen again.

So, away from the lush pastures of Killarney and on to the windswept WWII airbase at Pembrey - they still test missiles up there, but have so far (unfortunatley) not managed to wipe Llanelli off the map. Damn those functioning guidance systems.

So, a few movers and shakers here...........................

WayHey!
Go Focus!
As Snurf says, home turf suits us Brits, and maybe local knowledge as my Focus has run on both Kilarney and Pembrey before as part of SlotRallyGB, some years ago.
Ad to that, my home rally stage is a wanabee kilarney track, complete with they surface changes!
Looking forward to the Wolves round, I can transport the Park Ferme to Wolves, as I'll be at the Oxford SRGB round on Sunday.

Rgds,
Simon

That table is confusing... :wacko:

It took me a while to figure out it was ranked by times in the 2nd stage!

Sorry Zarko, I should've said! Thanks for pointing out the confusion caused - I've put the comment in below to help clear it up a bit. Same format results will be posted for next stage, then I'll post the final table as "Final Standings".
The left column is for overall standings after each round.

Just for clarification, this result sheet and the next are ranked by THAT particular stage, with overall positions in the left column.
Final results will be ordered by overall position of the three combined stages.

Thought you'd be happier with that performance Embs! Still one stage to post tomorrow.

Simon, I'm passing the cars to Matt T at Oxford SRGB round, then he will deliver to Wolves on 22nd July. Dave C will then get the cars for the IoM round and will then pass on to Jon in Norwich.

Snurfy, I do hope you didn't feed my driver and nav'gator tea before you let 'em loose on that hump track. Quite sure that'd be messy.

Don't anyone tell Alexis to check posts that Aberstone has made in the other place or he'll run rings around us in Wales in November

How the mighty are fallen! So sorry for Phil and Silver Rocket after being on the pod for the first stage. Still, it left room for little ole me!

WHAT!!!! SFI get the scoop!

Edit: I've just been there and couldn't believe it, just FOUR members logged in at this time in the morning. That must be a an all-time record. Come on Auslot...go International.

Edit again: I've been through the first four pages of Events and couldn't find it. Are you sure you weren't dreaming Embs?

I took me a while to find them Graham, you have to go to the club section and click on Wye Valley club site link and you should find them.


Wow, horrible again. Leaves me scratchin' what hair I don't have as to why my car has dropped so far. It has been reasonably good on all the tracks so far and now to be this far back is quite surprising. Oh well, the joys of proxy racing.
