A pleasant and relaxed evening of F1 racing on an extremely grippy track, at least on the 1:32 racing lines.
We were joined once again by Howmet - CEO of the Bodies For Beer Corp. In the old saying 'some people bring happiness when they enter a room - some people bring happiness when they leave it', Howmet is definitely one of the former.
F1 racing is often enlivened by the occasional airborne car and last Wednesday was no exception.
Mine was the first, but not the last ...
The 'win from any final' format was borrowed from Timaru this time around and the time saved from doing this meant that the finals were run for 5 minutes instead of the usual 3. My own final was a tense affair with John Secchi relentlessly chasing me down after a couple of early offs so, for a certain period, I wasn't sure that the race might have benefited from being shorter.
Did anyone say "pressure"?
The final results:
P1: 57.58 laps - Steve Kempson (Q2: 65.81 laps)
P2: 57.56 laps - John Secchi (Q1: 67.96 laps)
P3: 50.13 laps - John Dilworth (Q3: 58.59 laps)
P4: 47.63 laps - Allan Feldman (Q6: 54.22 laps)
P5: 46.12 laps - Cliff Bicknell (Q4: 57.25 laps)
P6: 42.67 laps - John Crocker (Q5: 54.95 laps)
Thanks to all that attended.
F32s next time around.
