HSC 2019 Retro Series Rnd 1 - STR 02/02/2019

Postby Mark Fox » Mon Feb 04, 2019 10:49 am

Hi All

The first round of HSC Club Series for Retro CanAm and F1 was held on 2 Feb 2019 on the Small Track and attracted 6 entries for both classes.

Usual suspects comprising myself, Darryl and Neil were joined by Wayne, Jake and Steve who look to re-join the fray for 2019 – welcome back gents.

Luckily we were able to have the one race rather than two races of three thanks to James, Joe and Greg marshaling for us - thanks due to these guys for their help

CanAm was a very close race between Darryl and I battling it out all the way for me to win by less than half a second!

Steve and Wayne also were racing closely for third as were Jake and Neil for the spoon. Third to Steve by two laps and the spoon for Neil with Jake edging Neil by two laps also.

All the way win for me but I was harried all the way by Wayne and Darryl who ultimately finished second and third respectively.

Steve was slotted into fourth all the way whilst Neil and Jake were neck and neck all the way resulting in Neil handing the spoon to Jake this time around.
