23-02-16 Winter League Round 3

The new carpet has arrived!
A very busy evening fitting the carpet to the hall, still just enough time afterwards for three qualifying rounds and a final.
The extra length and width of the track made a huge difference and the amount of grip without additive was awesome.
Thanks to everyone involved in the collection and installation of the carpet, just the track markers to sort out next week.

GT12 Class

Some very competitive racing, after two qualifying rounds Gavin Maciver was fastest, visiting driver James Sutton second and David Simpson in third place.
In the last round Gavin and David battled for the lead for the entire race with David crossing the finishing line first 0.76 seconds ahead setting the best qualifying time. Nick Bruty also had a fantastic race to take third overall just one lap down.
In division 2 Bob Harley was four laps ahead of his nearest rival Nick Wallace.
Mike Simpson was best in division 3 with Jake Crawshaw taking second place.


Just and A and a B final this week as time was short.
In the B final Nick Wallace had a convincing win from pole position, lapping everyone in the field. Mike Simpson was second and Rob Hambridge third.
Gavin Maciver shot into the lead almost immediately from the start of the A final and for the second week running had a virtually faultless race to both win and set the fastest laptime. David Simpson chased him hard but a few minor errors put paid to any chance of him catching Gavin. James Sutton took third place and Chelle Snowden was fourth. A great race this gaining a round of applause at the end from the other drivers and spectators.

Club Mardave Class


A great evening for Jordan Galbraith displaying some fine driving and superb overtaking to take the top qualifier spot one lap better than Mike Simpson and Paul Galbraith.


Jordan (driving to his full potential this week!) maintained his advantage in the final with a comfortable win, lapping the field and scoring the first maximum points in the current league. Second and third positions were unchanged from qualifying and Roy Matthews put in a great drive to finish in fourth place.
