That's good news Alexis. :)

 

It's taken longer to get there than it should have done, though, considering I paid for delivery within 2-3 days...! ;)

 

Never mind...!

 

Good luck with your round(s).

I have to apologise for a long radio silence but sometimes 1/1 life gets in the way.In my case it included

problems at work and medical exams.A couple of months ago i've been diagnosed with parkinsons disease and

treatment didnt show expected results.

Yesterday i had a last visit to the doctor and got added pills to swallow.I hope for the best

Here are the plans for the greek rounds:on Sunday i unpacked the cars and made a visual check,everything

seems to be ok.Tomorow i will go to the club and run a shakedown.If we get zero problems or problems that

can be fixed there and then we will race a couple of stages (out of 4 in total)depending on time.One issue

is that i cannot race because of right hand tremor so i have to depend on others.A second issue is that on

Saturday is the 1st round of the local rally championship so after Wednesday the stages cannot be used for the proxy.

So round 9 will be completed on next Monday or Wednesday.If everything goes according to plans next round (10) will be

on sunday 27th at Chaitas racing garden,rally track on both directions and internal lane of road track

Worst case scenario ,round 10 will be run onsunday October 3rd.

Wow Alexis, hope everything works out for you

 

As far as the cars go, just do what you can when you can, you're far more important than a plastic toy

 

PM me if there's anything i can do

Good luck with the Parkinson's treatment Alexis. I hope they can quickly find the right combination of medications for you.

 

I hope you enjoy the run with the cars.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

Everything went according to plan this time and we were able to race 2 stages yesterday night,

New Woods and Acient ruins.Before starting the race i gave the cars a shakedown,no problems,

apart from braid arrangement on a few cars.2 cars impressed me, #111 and #59 they were from another planet

and that will show in the results.Nisko sr raced New Woods and Nisko jr races Ancient Ruins.

Here are the results for SS1,New Woods

SS2 results will be published tomorrow as there are a few surprises.

The plan is to race stages 3&4 and photo session Wednesday.

Thanks Alexis

 

Looks like Peter's doing a late challenge for the lead, but i think Martyn's out too far to catch up

SS3,Raid,driven by Yannis (NTZ) tuesday afternoon.Tried several times but 3 cars, 9,20 and 25, would refuse to go through so we applied

the rule we use for our local championship,we gave the cars last cars time + 10".

Results:

Hi Alexis.

 

Congrats to the podiumites and a consistent round for me - 13th, 8th, 8th and 4th for 6th overall. Thanks also to Slotcarmann for his earlier repairs which appear to have returned my car to reasonable form.

 

Great organisation after your initial health problems so hope this augers well for the future.

 

Regards Chas Le Breton
