Wrp Round 12 Mount Salt Panorama

Recommended Posts

MSPBanner_zpsc2fdfdda.png

 

Last minute decision to run Round 12 of the 2014 WRP at Mount Salt Panorama.

 

Gazza and Craig (Team RR) offered their services so here we are into it.

 

Two stages - Stage 1 earlier today in very cool temperatures after mid 30's over the last few days so times will be down a fair bit.

 

Stage 1 is short one - about 1/4 of stage 2

 

Results

My eyes are like road maps at present so will post stage 2 in the morning

Thanks for pointing that out Shadow, I was pumped with third until then. Not complaining though, great to see my car going well again.

Seems my car limes Aussie conditions better.

 

Thanks for the run Mel. Congrats to the podiumites.


Computers. They'll never catch on.

Congrats to the pod people and nice one Matt overall , thanks guys for all the hard work and effort , and a very big thanks to all the hosts and sponsors who made it possible, 15th after some really poor rounds I am pleased with and wait to see if we run again, think 111 is in need of a rest now, and I will think of what to do next when the dust has settled down. :)

Is Round 12 the last round or do we have one more?

 

Last Round (13 and final) is at Casula - Gazza's. He hasn't run yet.

Track with "that" corner that makes or breaks you. :angry:

Gazza has our club racing at his place this Sat night so the last round will not be until at least the weekend of the 15th Nov. He will let us know ;)

Congratulations to the above 3 - well done and a pleasure to drive.

 

Stage 2, the track warmed up to about 10deg more than at the time we run stage 1 and it showed in times and some cars performances.

 

The cold track for stage 1 really hurt some cars and big time the series leader Matt Tucker. Two cars developed braid problems during the race # 10 and # 14. #30 two loose wheels and broken bearing mount.

 

Gazz took heaps of pics so when I get a chance (?? ) I will edit and post.

 

 

Looking at the series results it looks like Pos 1 & 2 are taken but the third podium spot is well up for grabs

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Car obviously didn't like the extra grip, well done to those up the top.

 

Thanks Mel, Gaz and Craig for running it. One more to go!

Thanks Mel and team for the round,congratulations to the podium holders.Another disastrous result for my car,i fear the front axle is loose again.

Had problems with the braids/guide. Looked ok and thought we fixed it halfway through round 1 then did the same part way into the second stage tried to fix (under yellow flag) but then decided to grab a spare guide with braid and put it in. Perfect but all too late :angry:
