Just a reminder of rules



And for anyone running a mega g


There will be callipers set to minimum tyre height for Mega G`s if you wish to check---I have been told that if callipers lift tyre off a surface then they are legal, also a block
will be avliable to check the size of vehicles.
This should stop Mr T Morris moaning about his rear end being too wide!!!!!!!!!

Any other questions feel free to ask, if I cant answer then I know a man who can!!!!!!!

Gentlemen, start your engines

Thanks for posting up the thread and the pics Mike


Looking at the Mega-G quick-view rules image, I realised it needed updating for 2015. So here it is:



That now includes the Mega-G, Mega-G+ and Super-G+ on one graphic. I've put the new version on the website.

The shop should have more of the F1-legal Supertires arriving in time for the race. Plus there will be some much asked-for Turbo parts to get those WHO Mod cars ready for April.

Mike it is the woman who defines the man. Mind you that has absolutely zero bearing on your question! The answer to that is it is the chassis that dictates what car it is. So Andy's McDonalds car is still a Mega G+ despite running an SG+ body.

My Mega G had a complete failure on Wednesday night so I'll be running my SG+ and also my Mega G+. I'm not racing for championships this year so can afford to sacrifice my evening to testing. We will be taking screenshots of the race computer after each of my SG+ and MG+ runs so that we can get some useful data. Probably best for me to do one inner and one outer lane with each car. I think there was a 6/10ths difference in pace between the two around the test track (on a 3 - 4 second lap) but we'll see what happens.

I've checked the stock Mega-G+ tyres and they are above the minimum legal height for F1.

It'll be good to see any times and scores we get in race conditions, and hopefully we'll get time to do a little testing after the race too.

We need lots of data on our tracks to see where these new cars might fit in to our classes over the next few seasons

I don't want to steal Mike's thunder on the race report, so...

We had 26 on the grid tonight



Simon and Duncan's tribute to Leonard Nimoy was excellent. LLAP.



Here's the results





Barry raced all night with Darren's race-tuned Mega-G+ and Gareth did two heats with his stock Mega-G+ (he'll say which ones).

After some great racing, this was our A final



The scoreboard



And our winners




Championship tables are updated, plus there are loads more pics on Flickr.

Mike's race report and my video will follow over the next day or so.

And now for the 26 that attended and the millions reading across the world IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT````````````SSSSSSSS TIME
For the race report!

So with 26 hardy souls venturing out for some F1 excitement the evening got off to the perfect start when track problems limited us to one lane running!!!!!!!!!!
Faced with a major disaster Mr Player did the only thing he could,,,,, change bits,,,, clean bits,,,,,, swear a bit but be a very relived person when all lanes sprang to life,
So now no excuses I had to do this report,,,,,, drat.

So onto the heats,,, on a twisty track designed by Simon the only problem I could see was, that I couldn't see!!!!
The heats passed in a blur of flying (in my case literally as the body was "a bit loose" and any off would cause it to fly anywhere!) cars with Alan having major problems in
white, and Gareth confusing everyone by changing car every 2 seconds!!!!!!! Some very close family racing particularly from one of our newer family's Matthew and
Richard Pringle showed how much fun a WHO night can be! In fact the only major problem we had was Allan coming up to race every 5 seconds,,, understandable with an
Alex and an Aaron,,, add in me that don't talk proper then he stood no chance!


And so on to the finals,,,,,,,,,
For the first time in a very long time we had an I final,,
This was a battle of the ages with Alan finishing just ahead of Alex in the heats to win lane choice the Red lane was the first choice.
Alan started well but lost ground after one or two "trips to the table!" Alex stayed calm and in control even though he claimed it was cold,(hence the hood up) so yooooofff
prevailed over age and wisdom.
H final With Alex stepping up to white lane the big question was could he find some form and win the whole event to win the $3million bonus,,,, The pressure was really
on Richard being the only adult in the race and even more scary was the thought of being beaten by his son Matthew!!!!!!! So the lights turn green everyone streaks
away from the line and battle commences after 2 frantic minutes there is disaster not only has the $3million not to be claimed as Alex could only manage 2nd but
Richard is beaten by all the juniors to trail in 4th!!!!!!! Oh the shame

All I can say is I know how you feel Richard, it may not feel like it now but the pain does fade---the embarrassment never does!!! Lol
Stepping up to the G final after a faultless drive in blue Ewan had the tricky yellow lane facing the ever improving Bob and another family duo the Morelands.
After 2 rapid minutes where Ewan just could not get to grips with yellow he finishes only 2 laps behind Bob in the much more fancied white lane, Aaron beat Jamie by
the same amount to step up to the F final, the only consolation for Jamie is that he did have the fastest lap time for that final.
The F final once again has a family battle with Corey and Neil squaring up against Duncan (Mr Spock) Skelt. The family nerves got to Neil(either that or he let Corey win)
and with only 19 laps in blue may have been the shock of the night also produced one of the closest finishes Neil(19.65) against Mr Spock(19.75) but both were no match
for Corey who steps up with 21 laps Aaron followed everyone else and struggled in yellow a valiant display though!
So Corey took his place in the unfancied yellow lane could he do the impossible and at least put up a fight?
With Tyler, Barry(in the first and only MG+) and Tony To Wide all ready for some serious racing the lights change and Corey storms into the lead,,, not only leading
but looking smooth and easy with it! Half way through the race and a rush of blood to the head leads to Corey taking the table trip to make things worse he has gone from
1st to last!!!! Some serious battling back ensues and when the flag waves the winner is Barry by just over 1 lap from Corey who had an absolute stormer in yellow to
his way back,,, Tony too wide was unlucky with just one off too many, Tyler tried his best but came up just short in white.
The D final includes the stepping up Barry and his MG+ many peoples junior title favourite Ned, Mr Simon Spock and Richard.
Another very close final with Ned leading in the very early stages but with some consistent laps Simon Spock takes the lead. Ned and Barry have a very close race
swapping positions seemingly every lap until one last off leads to Ned finishing 4th on 20 laps, Richard with 20.20 laps showed how close this final was 2nd was Barry on
21.50 with Simon squeaking through with 21.55 laps.
So now with the top finals in sight Simon took his place next The G-Man,,, The Keithster and errrr me! With Simon in the very unfancied yellow lane he was out of the
or so everyone thought Some very good laps were put in with Keith and Gareth having a close battle finishing with Gareth finishing just over 1 lap ahead of Keith.
Mike and Simon were having the battle of all battles until the very final seconds when I checked the lap timer whilst in the lead leading to a terrible table trip followed
by Keith I think the marshal who shall remain nameless so that I don't upset her(sorry Deborah I couldn't resist) got a bit flustered so a tiny delay in my car being
back on track lead to Simon sneaking through, the lap timer showed me to be 0.05 secs behind in 2nd(lap count M=21.00 S=21-05), so once again the yellow lane
shrugged off it`s gutter lane tag to produce a winner!
The B final featured Driver(not Marshall) of the night Deborah in blue lane Stephen the mouth of the south McCann in red, John in white and the very lucky but hard
charging Simon in yellow---could the impossible happen and Simon step up with 2 close calls???
Right from the start it became clear that the race was between Stephen and Deborah with the lead swapping between them several times before Stephen managed to pull
ahead and stay there to win by 2 laps. Simons luck deserted him this time and John just could not get to grips with the white lane and finishes 4th.
The A final was a real who`s who of WHO in pole was Mike D who called red as his lane of choice Darren with 2nd choice surprised people by calling yellow with Andy in
red leaving white for Stephen. So as the lights go out it was Mike that took command of the race Andy seemed to be in control in 2nd with Stephen 3rd and Darren
having unbelievable problems in yellow, halfway through and it was obvious that Mike had the race sewn up the challenge now was could Stephen catch Andy who was
struggling to stay on the track,,,, Darren having his worst final could only mutter bag of rubbish,,, wether that refers to car, track or driver is your call!!!!
As the flag dropped for the final time it was Mike D in 1st with Stephen catching and passing Andy for 2nd Darren I think was just glad for the race to end!!!!

A very enjoyable nights racing with many congratulations to Stephen and Mike on their victories and highly commended is Deborah for driver of the night(sorry Keith)
