December 29th saw the final race night of 2016 and our fourth "Special" night of the year.

Following the success of the last one using NSR Ford GT lane cars supplied by Peter, we decided to stick to the same formula. Peter once again supplied the set of cars. Big thanks to Peter for letting us loose with his prized possessions yet again.



Turnout was much better this time, with 10 members keen to race. Using our formula of highest placed championship position paired with lowest, and so on, the 5 teams were set as follows;

Peter & Tim (P/T)
Keith & Dave (K/D)
Jim & Sandy (J/S)
Wes & Chris (W/C
)
Steve & Will (S/W)

Peter preferred not to use the white lane, because of potential damage caused by running the barrier, so we set up for 18 minute stints on the other 5 lanes. Thankfully Peter's team were on Black lane first and he showed us all what he was prepared to let the black car suffer when "running the barrier"! This meant that fastest lap was set on the black lane in every session.

Session 1

Black lane - P/T 85.8 laps (Fastest lap 10.98, Peter)
Blue lane - W/C
88 laps
Green lane - J/S 87.1 laps
Red lane - S/W 86.8 laps
Yellow lane - K/D 82.1 laps

Session 2

Black lane - S/W 93.3 laps (Fastest lap 10.88, Will) (180.1)
Blue lane - J/S 90.2 laps (177.3)
Green lane - K/D 86.8 laps (168.9)
Red lane - W/C
90.6 laps (178.6)
Yellow lane - P/T 86.3 laps (172.1)

Session 3

Black lane - W/C
97.5 laps (Fastest lap 10.34, Chris) (276.1)
Blue lane - K/D 92.5 laps (261.4)
Green lane - P/T 91.5 laps (263.6)
Red lane - J/S 92.7 laps (270)
Yellow lane - S/W 93.2 laps (273.3)

Session 4

Black lane - J/S 96.5 laps (Fastest lap 9.98, Jim) (366.5)
Blue lane - P/T 96.1 laps (359.7)
Green lane - S/W 96.8 laps (370.1)
Red lane - K/D 90.3 laps (351.7)
Yellow lane - W/C
98.8 laps (374.9)

Session 5

Black lane - K/D 95.7 laps (Fastest lap 9.96, Keith) (447.4)
Blue lane - S/W 100.7 laps (470.8)
Green lane - W/C
104 laps (478.9)
Red lane - P/T 96 laps (455.7)
Yellow lane - J/S 100.2 laps (466.7)

So the final result meant that the Hayling Hoonigans pairing of Wes & Chris have a 100% winning record at our Special nights when teamed together. Well done to Steve and Will for a steady run throughout the evening bagging them second place, particularly as this was Steve's first experience of playing "magic cranes"!

Final result was

Wes & Chris 478.9 laps
Steve & Will 470.8 laps
Jim & Sandy 466.7 laps
Peter & Tim 454.7 laps
Keith & Dave 447.4 laps

Thanks once again to Peter for supplying the cars which, apart from one detached wheel insert and one detached fog light, put up with the abuse admirably.
