Thanks Martyn for all the hard work seems as thought the Lancer 111 is getting a bit to old now and like me needs to go out to pasture at least it's not quite not quite last YET. :mellow:

Hi Martyn, missed you today but I am hoping I am the Matt at the current top ready to topple down the board on Wednesday.

We ran on those track and 4 more in the Hereford round of the slot rally GB today. All very different tracks, with Big Betsy being a tricky one to get a quick time on. In SRGB you can enter 4 classes, came second in Modern 4wd (msc Subaru inline), 3rd in 80s (OSC Peugeot evo 2) and 5th in classic (teamslot alpine 310), 5th modified ( msc Subaru anglewinder).

Matt

It is indeed the Man formerly with the Golden Helmet standing proud at the head of the field! Everyone who drove the cars said yours felt special.

Sorry curef99, in Excel, I managed to sort the cars and left the notes column out of the sort! will do a fresh set of notes at tonight's final special Stage. D'oh.

There's life in the old dog yet PG!

That's Stage 4, the final stage, in the bag last night. sweating bullets, as the temp in the uk actually passed 20 degrees. They'll be passing out in the streets today.

Here are the comments on the car, based on a very twisty routed copper tape section that I ran last night.....

well done folks, it was great fun to drive, fettle, photgraph the cars, but not so much fun unpacking, repacking and carrying 39 cars around!

Thanks a bunch again to our sponsors our made it all possible, and everyone LOVED playing with the Scorpius throttle last night at the club racing.

Thanks for the run Snurf. Looking at how Keith's motor recovered, I wonder if mine might be in need of a smidge of magic spray too. They both got exactly the same treatment.

Congratulations to Matt, Martyn and Gary for the round podium, and to the others that scored along the way.

Huge thank you to Martyn and his merry band of elves for running the round.
Computers. They'll never catch on.

I know what you mean Martyn, we're on the way into winter and it's already down to 24deg during the day and a very chilly 10deg over night.

Thanks for running the round and making the Scorpius available to the locals, hope they enjoyed playing with it

Looks like at this early stage that Matt's car is the one to watch, it ran faultless over here so it doesn't surprise me that much

Again thanks for the big effort
Quickly read this post before it is deleted or i turn grey again

Thanks for running this round...
Pretty happy with my 11th...

As suspected, it appears to be a little light, hence the unsettled in bumps.


Also, had to let the owner beat me this round...
lol.

Thanks to Martyn and the guys for running the latest round. The extra suspense waiting for ss4 to be complete was a nice touch!

good to see my car holding it's own again. Just hope it lasts the distance!

congrats to Matt and the other podiumites!

it looks like my car is again limited by the lack of tuning on rally track... my fault.
next time, i add more weight and make sure it stick to the track.

Thanks for the specials guys, and again, good fun to have to wait for the last special.

That's a surprise, my time on Matt's Hideaway (something in that name) was the defining factor, Smurfen beating me on all other stages.

Not sure how long it will last, the motor is on its 3rd tour, hope it is not a peak before a mighty blow out!

Thanks for the round Martyn, see you at Gaydon this weekend.

Matt
