Bear in mind Gixxers had two of the Wrun guys driving for them at some point.
Looks as if everyone other than, perhaps, DHORC, raised their game a fair bit. Gary Skipp and co keep getting better and better, now they only have the almost stupidly amazing depth of WW to try and counter.
I was a bit disapointed for/with MARC last year, but this year they upheld the honour of teams from the States being a threat. They will be formidable in year 3...
VDT were top DHORC team for a while there, and of course it is not over yet...
Just checked the DHORC facebook page, pretty surreal, one of the admins just took the time to add three people to the group, but there have been no updates since hour SIX for these new people to look at.
Another amazing event hosted by Derby HO Racing Club. Every single person involved has, once again, worked tirelessly to facilitate the competing teams with such a brilliant circuit and venue to go racing on. Tob job
The Carazing team thoroughly enjoyed the race-long battle with MARC and it was extremely rewarding for us to see this setiment mutally expressed.
Target for next year - 6000 laps. 5-4-3-2-1 is a tall order..
Yes, a big thank you to Nick, Phil and the DHORC guys for putting on a brilliant event.
Also big thanks to Dave, Craig, Paul and Clive who raced with me on Écurie Anglaise. We had excellent fun racing and I thought we did a solid job as a rookie
team. It was a shame for us that most of the other teams had even better races
Clive's paint job was the best on the grid, I reckon:
Craig and Paul's excellent work as our media team can be found on our twitter feed.
I spent a few spare seconds shooting some video on Saturday night and will splice that in with Paul and Craig's pics from twitter and those that Nick has posted. It won't be as good as last year's offering, but I did have more to do during the race this time...
Just reading back through the various emails and facebook messaged flying around during the event. In a fairly early one I explain to an American 'watching' that is if fairly common for big gaps to develop early, and that these tend to flucuate most, if at all, during lane chances. The changes are incremental, due to the unusual lane rotation, I explained, and tend not to happen at all later on in the event.
I have since noticed Gixxers bucked that trend big-time. OK, it is a fair bet Dean and Steve from WW did their 2 hours each during that climb, but it is still impressive.
Was the 34mm rule relaxed? AFX GT40s are wider than that....
