Hi All

Only 3 starters for this round :( :o :? :|

With great help from James (armed with the clicker) and Greg Erskine as marshals we proceeded.

Well we had a great time - what did the rest of you do - was there free beer somewhere that I did not hear about?

The racing was a a little slow as the lap times and totals show - the track was in great condition as always and so I suspect that the power was a little down for whatever reason.

Thanks again to James and Greg.

REMEMBER - NEXT RACE IS THE 1ST ROUND OF SRC FOR CANAM AND GT1 AT SSME TRACK ON TUESDAY 24TH APRIL

Thanks for the report Mark.
Yes the numbers were down, but I had fun.
Maybe the low totals were due to caution getting around the track with only only 2 marshals.
I had issues in the F1 race. I use clear body armour (from the wing car guys ) to reinforce my pin holes. This being clear and my eyes being old, I didn't notice until the last bracket change that a piece had worked loose and was rubbing on the track causing interesting deslots at unexpected places around the track.
Thanks to James for running the race and Greg hanging around to Marshal.
See you at SSME.

Don't really think so as the times were about .25 sec off the pace on all lanes - also in practice I could barely get under 5.2 which as you know is pretty slow.

Nonetheless as you say it was a good night as usual.
