Eight of us got series 2 off the line, missing were Tim (grape treading) and Tony. Geoff expressed regret that he has not been listed in Clubman, he now is which means, what with the recent changes to Clubman regs - Clubman class is filling up nicely.
Fly classics, Jim wasted no time in putting down his winning line with a 33 that should have been 36. Best of the rest was Wes with 26. Score wise a close class with 14 being the lowest score by Alex. I was using the first Party Ferrari I found and was doing well until I got over excited in my last race and blew it with a 1 - DOH!
It was an indy party time again for me in Indy class - ouch, how contrived was that? Again it was a Mr over average for me as I netted equal Free Willies and 4s, I said I was Mr Consistant, Wes said I had pressed my C button, not sure what he meant by that? This time it was full house time for Jim with Jason next with 27.
Keith continued the full house theme in Group 5, it was a 29 for Jim. It turned out I had my own Group 5, and Ex Donkey offering, in practice I tried some Donkeyesk barrier bashing but it didn't work for me so I didn't deploy the D button and clocked an almost full set of FWs.
Break time saw Jim with an impressive 98 with Jason best Clubman on a healthy 73. Talk was BTCC at Silverstone and Sundays Havant Swapmeet.
Truck, Lorry, Rig, Dog, Bitch - whatever you call them, these are a special challenge with their lack of braking and topsy turvy tendency, and Luke struggled the most to end with the nights lowest score of 10. One of us had a special bit of kit called a Merchalardoasticaltastic (or something like that), it was Jim and he cruised to his second full montylado. he not a bead of sweat shed nor a yorkie bar slid. Wes picked up the wins going spare to finish 2nd with 29. I had by own offering and it either caused or got caught up in several outrages to clock me my worst class.
It was another of my own ex donkey offerings for me in Open Open, I was doing OK even had one win, but in my last race I guess it was the red mist confused me and I nudged the D button with disastrous results - idiot! Keith mopped up most of the 5s to be runner up with 31 - the winner with 36 was - err, um, I can't remember!
170 for Jim a win and he thinks it might be a PB - something for Tim to aim at? A very handy 128 for Wes got him runner up while I just beat Jason to the Clubman win. While Jim may have spent the night with his feet on the dash while quaffing his fav beverage, it was plenty of good racing for most of us. I tend to do well in the first round of new classes, so I recon I have my work cut out to hang on to the Clubman crown from now on, should be good fun trying though
Onwards and forever forwards to the 2nd round on October 1st, MFR results
