First up is the Raids, most enjoyed a good run a couple had no grip and a few way overpowered

 

As the cars arrived and were unpacked here before Craig ran his round, the only damage in transit was to the no 10 Bowler, fixed up and readied for action

Wow, thougjt you guys would have needed a break, it has been very busy for you.

Surprised with the kids Pajero, as it was not very good on you track last year.

NBI what they did to it.

I agree about Mivesons, it is good to drive.

Hi Gazza.

 

Great start to your round. Is there a competition to see who can run the fastest round or are you trying to run the sheep out of breath.

 

Nothing special about my Bowler as far as I am aware but has certainly performed above my expectations. One can only assume I have learnt something from early efforts with Subaru and Ford RS200. If only I knew what.

 

Keep up the good work.

 

Regards Chas Le Breton

Hi all.

 

Oh well every dog has its day. Two in a row is even better. Man those sheep must be getting tired.

 

Congrats to the other podiumites and another great organisation - thanks Gazza and team.

Going to show Gaz how to drive my VW. From my round to this , I think he couldnt find 5th gear. Just watched and cried :). Funny though , same painted surface but different outcome. Tyres just did not work.

They needed a good clean to work here as well. What tyres are they?

They are the standard Ninco ones that came with the VW

 

After cleaning they were good for 2 or 3 laps the it slowly started sliding, after that it was easy on the throttle, and it ran mid pack so it wasn't the "track cleaner"

Mivesons Focus, fresh from it's domination at Craig's, came out of the gate like a rocket, but after a couple of laps it started slowing down, quick stop and visual check found nothing wrong, continued to the end with it still slowing, inspection after the stage showed that the plastic crown was slipping on the axle to one side and binding against the bearing (see below), emergency repairs were done with some superglue applied to both sides of the crown, A Slot-it type crown will fix this, something to remember for future setups.

Charles your Subaru is so noisy, i've thrown bags full of cats into creeks that made less noise, but it's still going and going well, so you've gotta be happy with that.

 

Some of the others just couldn't get enough grip, some had clearance issues plus the "hairpin" played it's part with most of the cars as well

Thanks for the repairs - damn plastic gears.... .... sigh, huff, puff, moan, whinge - hopefully on stage 2 I can make up a few places. My dreams of a top 3 WRC finish are shattered.

 

There are 20 hosts this year aren't there!!!!!!!!!

 

Next year I'll be running all slot.it or equivalent gear........

Thanks Gazza great pics as usual all the time and effort is much appreciated.

Charles still being annoying like a terrier nipping at your heels.

Also another strong finish from Flipper,starting to make a late run.

Glad that Marks preparation showed in Stsge 1LOL

Thanks for the great round and photos. Congrats to podiumites and all helpers.

 

Always good to see the cars in action. Certainly looks like they were driven to limit unless you are tricking us with your photo prowess.

 

Note noisy Subaru. Good to see car going well still/again after disasterous Minto jaunt where Ninco Hop ruined cars chances. Is it the surface that is so different or what?

 

Re gear sounds like Lenny Broke's fix from about 3 years back may be finally failing. Is it the same that happened to Miveson in stage one. Car still has all the original gear which after 5 years is pretty good. Nothing wrong with original plastic gears as long as they do not slip across shaft.

 

Can you check please if you have time. Would be a pity to see car fail altogether.

Thanks for running the round which is ticking along so nice.

 

Series results updated for the WRC round.

 

Consistency appears to be the key to maintaining a podium placing.

Hi Phil

 

Looks like you have cleared out but other podium positions are all fairly close.

 

By the way that Terrier is probably a Terrier in Sheep's clothing or perhaps an old Ram.
