I haven't been posting up the WDMCRG races since late last year for a couple of reasons.

1 In the too hard basket at the end of last year.

2 I hadn't raced this year until last month. Seeing as I took some pics at Joe's last time and we had a race at Bo's for the first time last night, the guy's hassled me into putting up last months pics. I am on holidays so will be away from the work computers, so nows the time. I will post last nights in about a week and a half when I get back from Noosa.

Anyway here they are.

The grids for the three classes on the night.

Most of the Open Racing cars are pretty much standard. The good tyres are still Scalextric Eagles But some are now using MJK's and Slot.it's. MJK's are the go on plastic by the looks.

Looks like a real Sport Sedan race here. My Tony Edmondson Alfa wasn't up to the quick cars pace. Too twitchy being a short wide car but it was fun to finally have a race to put it in. Garza's Mustang helped boost the Sport Sedan ranks.

A couple of Capri's, one Racing version and one Front engined. The Racing version was fast as expected.

Paul's Subaru showed some Spirit and Devious had trouble cornering at the same speed with the Ninco Merc. Look out Paul

A varied bunch of cars here in Open Sedan.

How does the MRRC Celica go up there? Boss 302 and I both have them down here and they are just great when fitted with a softer motor,the 30,000 is a bit too much for our short tracks.

Dave drove it to third in front of some Fly Capri's so it went very well. I think the red motor went walkies too.

Phil, The Capri's got a Slot-it V12 in it which makes it a very smooth car without giving away any top end speed. I've replaced the guide with a Ninco sprung one and the car is now a lot more sure footed in the front end. It's a beautiful car to race now. Dave

We are running 23,000 Slot It's because that is the rev limit for the class down here.

Phil, humble apologies. I said Capri, I meant Toyota. Dave
