Bo, would you like to give us some idea of what your BOCOAT surface is, just for the record? ;)

Well that's a relief!!!! I have been having images of the package lost in the system a la the GPR.

Looking forward to seeing how they go.

Bo, did the cars travel allright in the box, the way they were packed??

Cheers Alan

The box is in tack but I have not unpack them yet.

AS far as the surface goes I will take some close up pics of it the recode.

The track is 19 meters long and we run clock wise at 10 Volts.

Well, this is a surprise. BeeJay in pole again and Sport Racer second again for the umpteenth time (don't you get tired of that?) with Fangio rising to the occasion as well. And "the Slotter lola very fast, just a bit to light in total weight, (the lightest car in the field)" taking fourth. Should be happy with that and hope it will do well enough in the race tomorrow. Good job, Bo, thanks.

 

Actually I think the race is on next friday, Lim

Ooops, must be getting old. :) This change in sequence from having Qualifying a day before race day to a week before is a little too much for this old noggin to take in. :):D :D

Well, it's gone midnight. time to login and see if anyone is awake. Results already? Geez, not only do NSW have the fastest racers, we also have the fastest results.

 

Well done Bo, great to see you do so well with the Lola. I was worried it would be as slow as all my other cars, nice surprise this car is turning out to be.

 

Are these official qualifying times or just getting a feel for each car? Isn't the race next week?

 

And 2nd again!!!!! I think next year I'll have to build a quick car.


May the downforce be with you.

More great Photos Bo

I'm just curious to the order of cars in pit lane. I assume that it is a random lineup.

It is interesting that two of the cars, Beejay and Fangio struggled with wheel hop here in Adelaide but are now on the front row of the grid.

track surface is obviously a factor here I reckon.

any way this round is going to be very interesting indeed.

My tip is keep and eye on a few of the mid fielders with the longer heat durations being a factor if the car is easy to drive particularly devious old brokes that can lap consistently and stay on.

Great photos, thanks Bo. Interesting how certain of the cars seem to suit one track and not others although once again those usual suspects seem to be lurking around the top order. Now if only I had fitted a deeper guide......

Bo, what time does tomorrow night's racing start? Yeah, I know I can't make it until pretty late but I hope to be there in time to "help" marshal Phil's car. :lol:

 

Got the computer setup trackside so results can be posted after each heat? Now that would be pretty impressive........
