Great work Craig ,thanks for the stage and for posting the resuts so fast.
Congratulations to FVPGTP and Craig for the first podium of the series.Positions 2-3-4 whithin 2 secs,that's tight.I'm happy with the fastest lap and starting better than last year(should be a good sign) but worried of deslots.Mixed feelings for the Hellenic team positions 2-8-9-14-25-41-48.
A comparison to last years stage positions 1 to 10 2012:6" 2013:17" .It is a surprise that some cars did not improve despite the grippier tires .
FVPGTP improved his best lap by 2" and total by 21" but La Porta Verde(last years winner of this stage) was slower by 1" lap 36" total.

6 cars were quicker than last years quickest lap time, worryingly that man from Greece blitzed the fastest time.

My is quicker than my last years entry which is great, but overall slower. I presume deslots, hope it is not an issue. However I went for a much lighter car this year as it seemed to cope without it happily, lets see.

Oh well .Up at the ungodly hour again. Feels like I'm going to work. Ah crap ,I'd have been late if I was. Matt ,your car was good . Deslots , maybe 1, but being in the top of the starting grid, which even I hate , your then watching the car slowly drop down the order. Lets see what today holds . Grabbing my 6 weetbix and coffee and first things first is to put the hotwater urn on. :D . Catch you all later ,much later.
Cheers Craig

Don't get too excited Alexis, i think your fastest lap is a typo, i'll double check in 20 minutes when i get to Craigs, but the fight for fastest lap is between the front 3

If lap time indicated is correct, then my Subi is not short of mumbo. Time total however is moderate, so must be a bit lively to drive. After last years debacle, I didn't fiddle with it too much; bit of a scrape,sand and sort, a touch of weight. Will look with interest to the full round totals

If there were any typo's the total time after stage 2 will be correct from Race Co-ordinator.
Unfortunately we do not appear to be able to dump the half way stage onto a spreadsheet, so to keep you natives happy Gazza & Craig recorded stage one manually as well. There are no stage bonus points this series as they have been fed back into the positional points.
Points are allocated down to 20th position this series with more points overall up for grabs. (see the points table under the proxy rules section).
I can't believe that I wanted to grow up

Hi guys

We finished the final stage about an hour ago, Craig will be compiling the information into some thing legible over the next day or so

In the mean time i'll go through some of the photos from the two days and post them up

I won't let the cat out of the bag regarding the final results, but i will say there were some movers and shakers on the final stage, and some very close times, and the tissues were out on more than one occasion

Oh and the fastest lap is with ..... (nearly slipped out) ..... Sorry Alexis yours was a 21.005 not 20.005

Hi guys . Round 1 of the WRP has been run and won. As Gaz has written I'll do my best to get the results up and posted asap . Alexis , your time has been fixed ,sorry my bad ,long day. Wow didnt the track change today . We had a great day with the sun warming up the garage and causing a few upsets . Thanks to all involved who helped me out by marshalling and taking pics. A big thanks to Ian again for the MJK tyres (Sponser suck up) ,they worked well IMO.

Just a bit of a whinge this way , I'm going to go through all the cars and put a bit of bluetack over the screw mounting holes. 2 cars lost rear screws and I cant find 1 of them so replaced out of my lot.
This is a nuisance as it can short the track or even cause another cars to deslot .
So now the tracks are put away ,I'm out of here and I'll leave you all hanging ;)
Cheers Craig
