SSME 4 Hour Enduro 2020 #3 - Results

Postby Mark Fox » Mon Dec 28, 2020 3:10 pm

Hi All

Well it was a lovely sunny day as Stoo and I set off for our third outing in the country side also known to us as the farm (SSME) for the 3rd and final 4 hour Enduro of the year.

I really love these races as there is nothing like the combination of fresh country air, the sound of our little cars going hell for leather with a lovely overlay of the sound and smell of Ron's great work on the BBQ.

So first up it was a bit of practice and tuning washed down with some truly excellent bacon and eggs on nice fresh bread followed by our lane draw.

Talk about luck but this year FASTUFF have drawn Red to start on for all 3 enduros - not my favorite lane to start with but what the hell :lol:

A full field of 6 teams for this one.

The super quick duo of KENNY/JASON set the pace for the first bracket while the THE THREE TEAM (Darryl, Chris and Ron) and FASTUFF also started well to be 1,2,3 at the start of the 2nd

THE BAXTERS had a myriad of issues in the 1st bracket and suffered for it while ROBYN/ROB were heading them into 2nd bracket which then saw THE BAXTERS claw their way past.

TAM/BLAKE were out to have fun and did so even though they were not as quick as the rest of the field.

After the completion of the 3rd bracket it was FASTUFF, KENNY/JASON,THE THREE TEAM, THE BAXTERS, ROBYN/ROB and ROBYN/ROB and that is how it proceeded until the end of the 4th bracket when we stopped for our pit stop and lunch.

Sausages off the BBQ this time and with nice bread and some sauce they sure hit the spot.

No changes for the last 2 brackets and so FASTUFF take the win followed by KENNY/JASON only 22 laps down after 4 hours. Next was THE THREE TEAM 100 laps back for the final podium spot.
