Dave, thanks to you and the team for hosting this round and thanks for putting this proxy together. Peter Gunn way to carry on from qualifying to the actual race with the drastic weather change. Congrats also to Gas41t and Lancelot for your podiums also. And I gotta have my little silver Mustang back but thank you for getting the most out of my car.

Thanks guys. First time hosting a proxy on my little track and really enjoyed it.
And a huge thanks to Dave for organising another cool proxy.

Congrats to Peter Gunn, that M1 was so easy to drive, smooth and quick.

And congrats to the other podium getters. Gas's BMW & Lancelot's Lancia were very good too.
For me Celina's M1 & Brumos Mustang were memorable drives too.

Thanks too to the HB crew for coming out and marshalling, But as said there were very few deslots.
I recall putting my on Capri on it's roof twice - What is it when you drive your own car. I lose it.

I'll add a few pics from each heat to follow, but here is our round winner... The marshals were pretty please for him too . B)

Keith you BMW M1 was very well suited to this track
it just didn't miss a beat and handled this track beautifully

but my favorite car has to be Gas4it's BMW 320i
what a lovely looking and well set up car

Thanks Capri-corn7 and the Napier team for running the final round. A nice compact track with plenty of interesting corners. Congrads to Peter Gunn for your first Round win, I think your M1 was just starting to hit it's straps! Congrads also to Gas4it and Lancelot for making up the rest of the podium. With Gas4it's 2nd placing in this round, he will have taken overall 1st place in the points table so congrads for being such a consistent top runner. My M1 on the other hand seemed to have lost something in the last 2 rounds and was steadily back peddling.... that's proxy racing.

Dave has asked me to complete the final points table and post it. Still haven't got all the entrants' class so the class positions is incomplete, but pretty clear overall and in each class who the top 3 are so congrads to them.

Final points position below.
We had a number of equal placings in this last round, so after discussions with Dave, we looked at the qualifying position for the round to decide final finishing places for points allocation.

congrats Gas41T for another proxy win, that BMW 320i is a absolute dream car
I should be back hosting in 2020 so I look forward to racing with you all then

thank you to all the hosts and their many helpers
if it wasn't for your dedication to slot cars we wouldn't have proxy racing

and thanks to all that have been involved by entering

I hope to see a few of you at the slot-it DTM challenge later in the year

David,
To you and the other contestants I want to thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in your proxies over the past two years. David your coordination and administration of these events have been unsurpassed. The participants and interaction has been great. I will miss not putting a car in the mail for one of the two great events you have hosted. Rossko great job and I will start to think of what I can do to represent the Group B class in the future.
I know that I am one islander that is humbled by the other two great island groups in Oceania. David best of luck in your studies and I hope get to see you all in person in the future.
Aloha
