Todays event at Bolton was a very good days racing Although the cars were not truly "box standard " in the true sense of the word they all used the components the cars came with from Carrera,.The only mods allowed were glue and true and the body posts removing to facilitate a loose body mount .
The event was run on the enduro style so every one got an equal amount of track time of 15 mins per lane .Early races saw a pattern emerge that Mick Lords Audi was going to be the car to beat with him scorching off to an early lead .James Johnson was also hot on the pace after a crown wheel failure in practice caused him some concern .Boltons Derek (Im 74 you know ) Howell was flying too turning in consistanly fast times .
Wrexhams Rob Skupski had a few body mounting problems losing a screw at one point and later loosing his body altogether (getting to be a habit)
Luke Brand wood was the only junior entry of the day and despite a lot of problems Luke kept the car going to the finish
Jim Brown , despite turning up to late for practice made steady progress all day getting faster and faster eventualy stting FTD with a time of 111.49 on white .
