Kieth I found that you had a loose guide wire so fixed that

Aloha you had a broken lead wire so I fixed that as well

 

my favorite car was Gas41T BMW 320i it just looked so good on track and goes really well

Kieth your BMW M1 went like a dream

 

I will get the overall results sorted tomorrow night

Thanks for the drives guys

Orakei's M1 was so much like my own to drive, but I had the most fun with Gas 320.

I did low 5.2s in both cars.

 

Dave - my specs definitely aren't art home, wondering if someone picked them up by mistake or .... dunno

Thanks DC and the Napier crew for running Rnd 5. Congrads to Gas4It and Aloha. Close racing indeed, I suspect if my M1 had sneezed, Gas4It's 320 would have blown past me. That should make the points table a bit more interesting. Bring on the Aussie rounds!

Hi All,

 

Thanks to all concerned for putting on the round - congrats to the various Podiumites....

 

Still disappointed with my entries' performance for the effort put in - but you get that......

 

If you guys weren't so scared of plastic tracks, I could give the field spin to see what's what...... But I can't see that happening, too many egos might be at stake.....


Cheers,

 

Tony.

 

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?
