Totally dominated by Matthew who races everything from Womps up on this track and has a lot of form on this track. Casey held down 2nd all the way over Gregg T.

Good run by newbie (well not really new but newly racing again) Kevin who drove a good race and was followed by Stevo and then another newbie (see previous disclaimer) Greg. Welcome to the fray (as opposed to affray gents).

Matt again closely followed by Brad then Gregg T. The 1st race was the gun race with 2nd race providing the 4th spot as the best position in the wrap.

Again Matthew got the pink and 6 of the best lap times with Brad keeping him honest – then a bit of daylight.

Well that it until the next round on the Short Track (not forgetting the 4 hour Enduro and the SRC Round at Luddenham).

Hi gang,
Once again thanks Mark. Your reports are always anticipated.
I think the BT chassis is Brad speak for his new Back Track chassis jig. It will be his first jig built chassis, so look out.
