Round 8 - Rally Isle Of Man - Part 1

Recommended Posts

Hello Dave,

I'm just catching up here. The axle demounting thing is very curious. As Branco says above this happened before, even though the cars are well wrapped and protected in the box. The Fords seem particularly susceptible. I added some extra bubble-wrap to avoid any "loose eggs in a box" so surprised and dissapointed that this happened again.

Hi guys

 

Sorry for the delay, Kevan has pointed me in the right direction with uploading stuff and kindly dealt with the car photos, whilst Barbs and I - and Mike Buss, were running two more stages today for Round 9.

 

I was out all day, so without further ado, here are the results of Round 8, Stage 2. the TT grandstand stage. All the car photos were taken on that stage, which is the most scenic of the ones used in Stage 8.

Evening all

 

Congratulations to the podiumites in Round 8.

 

Car 27 has clearly come good in the last couple of rounds and is a joy to drive. It certainly suits me, as it is well planted with just a hint of tail-out on the corners. It rarely feels like it is likely to de-slot.

 

Car 4 is not much different, although there is very little tail-out and it never feels quite as confidence-inspiring, but it is certainly on a par.

 

Alexis with car 7 has pretty much got things sussed this year and is firmly planted in the slot with a good amount of slide in the corners, really tremendous fun.

 

After that there's a bit of a gap, then it's really tight down to 10th.

 

Well done everybody and my thanks go to Barbs for acting as start marshal. I don't know how many total laps she's watched this weekend, but her head must be spinning...lol. :wacko:

 

Thanks for your patience guys with the technical glitches with the posting of results and photos.

 

Thanks to Kevan's IT help, I think we now have things sussed and I'll move on to starting a new thread for Round 9.

 

Cheers

Dave
