Round 4 Shelmore Hillclimb

Recommended Posts

This is Shelmore Hillclimb Stage.

It has some very fast sections,especially over the top,but what looks like a straight has a nasty kink in it. IF a car can negotiate the kink at speed it does make for very fast times.

The Metros struggled with the kink and as you can see if I did not slow for the kink it ended in disaster.

The RS200 could be driven on the limit over the top and that made a big difference.

There was nothing between the top 3 cars,the one off lost Mondeo some time other wise he would have been up with the other two.

Home track advantage did help my Lancia as it was set up on the hillclimb.

Team Red's Audi was very good,even though it seemed to lack grunt compared to Rossco RS is particular.

Zegas's car suffered from problems with it guide that sticks out in front of the car and wobbles in the pivot,this caused several offs.

Stage 2 of the Round has been completed.

The RS 200 dominated only the home track advantage allowed my Lancia to get on the podium.

Gas41T's car was fast over the top BUT would not go thru the down hill hair pin corner,loosing time.

 

Action from this stage.

Round 4 Final results.RS200 white wash.

3 very good cars,and yet all a bit different to drive

27 was easily the fastest over the top of the track,But did not like the very tight down hill section.

nothing to between the other two,4 was a bit smoother that 74,which has nice power delivery.

 

I will try and get my notes typed up as soon as the cars are on the way to New Zealand.

 

Thanks to every one for letting me play with some great cars.

I an surprised by how fast they are,compared to the more open Oz Rally cars.

Thanks for running the last couple of rounds Phil.

 

It shows how much it is the track not the driver as after 5th on Shelmore Park, I've dropped to 17th on the Hillclimb !

 

Congratulations to the top 3.

Well, better result for me in that stage.

Thanks for running it Phil, it's a very inspirational stage for me. I'm planning something similar, all be it made from Scaley Classic chopped into single lane with several rally loops.

Thanks for running the stage, look forward to seeing the overall results to date

Thanks very much for great drive Phil. At least I was very consistent. See Ben is improving although no longer in Metro. Branco was not too far behind. Not sure what Aquakiwi has done with his car though. Perhaps it will shine in later rounds.

 

Look forward to next round.

 

Regards and best of luck to all. Chas Le Breton (charlesx)

Had no idea cars were coming to NZ. Clearly I have not paid enough notice of rules or whatever. A great move from my point of view.

 

What track have you got now Branco. You have built so many.
