Hi All,

This is the last Retro race on the Big Track at HSC.

Can-Am

Wayne W shot to an early lead and held it to the end without faltering even though he lost a front wheel - it did not slow him one bit.

Darryl, myself and Charles duked it out all race and then finished in that order. My car was flying until I lost a gear in B3 and so I was happy to finish only one down on my nemesis Darryl and a couple up on Charles.

I thought Scott did well also as he is a relative newbie in Retro racing.

So Wayne W takes a well deserved victory in the last BTR race ever at HSC and it was a very deserving first ever Retro win for him.

Wayne's win was particularly pleasing on several fronts: - he worked hard on his driving; he has absorbed a lot of car smarts and is now also building his own chassis as he develops into a top class competitor.

A very close race with Darryl taking the honours by about 3 seconds over me with Charles a lap back. Wayne was a little out-gunned in the F1.

Great send off for the Big Track with a new Can-Am winner and yet another close race in F1.

Vail BTR @ HSC

This is the report I was waiting for :)

Great report as always Mark :)

And thanks for the kind works and thank you for the advice on the build of this Can Am

It was quick straight out of the box :D

Just a shame both Mark and I had our issues as a straight out race would of been great any way I will take my first
Can am retro win as I got close for the first Round of SRC on the small track. Shame tonights round of SRC was cancelled as I was looking forward
to race this car on the small track, anyway on to Luddenham for the next round (just waiting for confirmed dates).

Thanks to James and Joe for a well prepared track as always

And thanks to ALL you guys that turn up to have a race
