The other drivers don't frequent our forum too often so I thought it would be appropriate to give my driving impressions from the day.
For me, it was a different Tasman proxy, for those of you who may not know but in previous years I ran the proxy race solo, I lived too far from all of my drivers and just found it much simpler to run the day on my own, Saturdays race was that much different for me, most enjoyable to have the other guys involved and for Eric(Paul) to be keen on the whole proxy concept is certainly a bonus.
The cars......Obviously the results do speak for themselves, the top 3 cars were a delight to drive, although this years field did not bring a lot of 2021 cars to the race, it was good to see cars from previous years improved and running better with that development.
If there was one thing which stood out was tyres and who had done their work in getting those little black buggers to work best, the higher the car finished in the race the better the tyres were and the easier those cars were to drive ,Brumoss' car, Pauls ferrari and Lennys' 158 all had terrific grip and on a couple of occasions "you" had to be reminded that these top few could be pushed harder than most of the others,
Certainly lessons could be learnt for the rest of us that you cannot spend too much time on preperation, my car was a typical example of that, good speed but a little sketchy on the bends, I really should have spent more time on prepping those tyres!
All in all a very enjoyable day, just love the Proxy thing next years series cannot come quick enough!
Can I close off by giving special mention to Paulslots Ferrari 1512, well done Paul ,a beautifully presented car, and using that chassis has again shown that it can be put together and perform at the top end of a very competitive field,
