Finally managed to start round 5, after all the Xmas and festive commitments ...... still have a few birthdays and family things going so the rest of this round will be run over this week with the last class run on Saturday.

First up for your viewing pleasure is the Raid Trucks

This is the first time these have been run, we have an interesting field of vehicles with a wide choice of tyres, weight and height.

As with all events on this track, it was the ability to negotiate the hair pin that placed the car at the top or the bottom of the rostrum

The Avant Lancer of AMCC went like all powers around all the track except for the hairpin .... did not get around once, the body looks to have been lowered and may be fowling the guide

Posted Image

The tyres on the rear of Ben's Schlesser had good grip for about 4 laps, after that it was like driving on ice

Posted Image

Phils BMW just a little unstable on the track plus had a couple of hairpin issues

Posted Image

Marks Schlesser went well just couldn't match the pace of the top three

Posted Image

Shadow Rusty's Pro Truck went like a rocket but would let go on the hairpin without any notice, scored the fastest lap for the Raids, and was a second off the current lap record

Posted Image

Craig's VeeDub came from no where, noticed that it had three loose wheels (Mark you had one) super glued back on and it was a surprise to drive, a couple of hiccups (hairpin) apart from that great little car truck

Posted Image

Ross's X5, with 163 grms it literally stuck like s**t to a blanket, had an almost perfect run, a couple of minor problems but made the hairpin every time

Posted Image

Mine ended up with an electrical problem and had a DNF, it will also be withdrawn from the rest of the series

Final results winners were ..... GAS4IT, Teamred and shadow rusty

Posted Image

Posted Image

Next up will be the WRC cars ..........

Thanks for getting things under way Gazza.
I think my grippy tyres fitted to some of the cars are just too grippy on the tight corners and wont allow any slide.

Gotta learn some how Phil, I'm taking a hit now so future entrants know what tyres not to use. If I had of sent a car that was at the right height then it would still have the Ninco tires on it.

Fabian MJK don't do a raid tyre so I made some for this year, but IMO they are a little soft.
Eurethsnes are a very good all round tyre for rally car.

What are the options besides the yours and the standard Ninco and Avant tyres?

Fabian the raids need large diameter tyres. I could no find any other tyres to fit and give the required diameter. Fly truck tyresvfitvthevBoler as has different wheels.
Ben as stated I did not find any.

Noticed at Craig's (round 4) that mine was the only one without brakes, and wouldn't slow down enough for the corners, so tip tip tip, ran a few laps here and it was on off, on off with the power then nothing

Ok the WRC cars have been run and big surprises all around

First up the majority of the cars were very good and negotiated the hairpin without any problems .... most of the times, and as always this was the determining factor in the final positions

The field was very close as you can see by the times and a hiccup here and there would drop a car down the list, a couple of cars stood out from the rest and one managed to do the fastest lap ever around the track

Some of the action ........

Mel what can i say, it was the track cleaner but i don't think that was the problem .... just couldn't keep up, maybe it's time you won another one
Posted Image
Ross, went well, couple of issues with the hairpin robbed you of a better spot
Posted Image
Alexis, had little traction around the track and sounded like it was scrapping, looks like the rear of the chassis is hitting some of the high spots and hills on the track
Posted Image
Posted Image
Peter Gunn .... again a couple of problems on a few of the corners
Posted Image
Fabian .... the thing is a rocket ship, but wouldn't get around the hairpin so it would loose 1-2 seconds each lap, even when you hover marshal
Posted Image
Charles .... another good performer, pace was down a little but also had a few corner issues
Posted Image
Knealer, great little car, maybe a little light, bounced about a little good solid run
Posted Image
AMCC .... another good car, pushed it to it's limits and couldn't get anything else out of it
Posted Image
Ember .... totally unexpected, just sat on the track and never came off, the power is nothing to write home about, but it's consistent and that's what pays off in the end
Posted Image
NTZ .... another great car, couple of hairpin issues lost a few seconds
Posted Image
slo1quick ...... perfect !
Posted Image
Posted Image

Winners were ..... Slo1quick, NTZ and Ember

Should have the final round (historics) run by Saturday afternoon

Congrats to NTZ and Ember on the podium spots for the WRC!
Top job on the round so far, as usual, Gazza, good luck with the Historics and thanks to your helpers too. Great pictorial, as usual!
Pretty chuffed with the turn around for the #2 car this time round (last place here last year) .... now if only I could remember what mods' I made... :)
Interesting to see the differing results throughout the field from track to track.
Cheers

Thanks Gazza for getting the WRC completed, certainly a few turn arounds on the podium.
No lamp posts for the Celica to stop at has made a difference. Wonder if Embers RS will perform well on your track.
Well done to Stu with the Subaru, finally going well after years of development, always a constant performer, usually let down by grip levels.
The 207's are impressive.
But looking at the lap times there are no bad cars in this field.
