Jim - following our discussion I have rearranged the points table to make it clearer, the right hand columns now show in order - running total - points dropped - final total -.

It makers it clear Luke cannot be caught in Clubman. One thing it has also made me to notice is that Luke is guaranteed 3rd place overall - remarkable.

Well done Luke.

New MFR table.

PS: Do not show zeros works really well -

Yes, apologies Will for calling your good character into disrepute.

I didn't realise that you "pre-dropped" a score. Or lack of one.

As a penance I will bring my glue gun on Monday and try to stop your Escort doing an impression of a worried rabbit.

And well done Luke! What a time to go off to Oz for months on end.

Secondly, the result of the final round has AT LAST been Published. The round was won by Tony, with me winning Clubman class. Class winners were Tony (3 classes),Wes, Tim (36 in Lorry),

Congratulations to Jim for winning the championship and to Luke for winning Clubman class.

Before round 2 we had round one. Round one was won by TIM - well done Tim, and that also means Tim is out of the Clubman pit forever in Manor Farm Racing Club. Round 1 won by Tim with 146 points, Clubman won by me with 115.... We also had a last guest appearance by raining Clubman Champion Luke, before he goes off on his massive GRAND TOUR from which he will not return until sometime in 2021. Luke - have a great time and we look forward to welcoming you back - sometime.

Round two: Jim got off to a good start winning both Hornby BTCC and Ninco Vintage with 36 then 33. I had by far my worst round with 11 which was last in class and the lowest of the night - boo hoo! I started the first two races with a 2 and a FREE WILLY which was enough to make me happy. Till Jim pointed I should use the green party car which was very quick and smooth. So I swapped, it was fast, maybe too fast, and smooth but it got me a run of 3 times 1. My throttle happyness tamed I finished with another 3. Turns out the car was happy in it's own lane but on any tight turn in an outer lane it would tip over unless extreme care was taken,

In Carrera GT Jim looked to be cruising for another full house win, but an errant 1 put paid to that. So much so that it was a draw win for him and Tony with 31.

At the break Jim with 100, was set fair for another evening won, well clear of Tony with 84.

In the first round Tony had his worst round in Hornby Narrow F1, but on this night he was in a class of his own as he cruised to a full house. I have always rather liked these tail happy critters and although my party hack didn't seem that special, I managed to keep my nose clean avoid trouble and rack up my best score of the night, my 25 was also runner up score.

My Indy car gets to run every time we have Open Open, it's not a lot of cop but it is dependable, that does for me - cos it is all I've got. But take no pity on me I like a good race and that is what I got on this night, Most of us must have had a good race as 24 was the best score set by Tony, Wes and me. Next was Geoff with 21. Ooo aaa - where was Jim? Jim started the class with three ones in a row - yes - 3 times 1. Engrossed in my great racing I did not notice what happened to Jim, perhaps it was his car, as his last 3 races saw business as usual but....

So random upset or start of a great battle? Could be interesting, remember Tim won the first round but was away on this night. Round 2 won by TONY with 144, Jim was 2 adrift. My miserly 97 was enough to give me 2 Clubman wins in a row. It seems I should raise a fist and shout "That's what I am talking about", why, I do not know, so I would rather not..

And the battle continues on January 20th, a win for who? - Tim, Tony or Jim, and what about Keith who has missed two rounds - get well soon Keith, come back and win round 3, I would like to see that.. See the scores and more here.

Only 6 of us for round 3, we also picked the upcoming classes for part 2, see below.

BTCC was won by Tony with 21, max poss 25 as we used only 5 lanes.

Jim won Ninco Vintage with 22.

It was full house time as Tony won Carrera GT with 25.

Narrow F1 was a close affair as Jack won 2 races, he was helped by his quick car and a bit of luck, this gave him 18 points to finish runner up a point behind Wes who clocked 19.

The break saw the lead in the balance with Jim on 77 and Tony just 1 behind.

Jim won Open Wheel with 19, but Tony finished a point away, leaving the evenings outcome still finely balanced.

After his good showing in Narrow F1 Jack picked them as the looser extra class, however he was unable to repeat his good form. Up at the front things started to get interesting as I took Jim out (by mistake) to give him a 1 in his first race. Tony won the class with 19.

The evening was won by Tony with 113 Jim was 3 points behind. I won Clubman with 83.

MFR club latest results. Next round is on February 3rd.

The picks for part 2, which should start on March 2nd.:

1. LMP Proto

2. Hornby Nascar

3. Ninco Angle GT

4. 70s' F1

5. Open OPEN

A meagre six racers for the 4th round, we noticed that Tim who won the first round quite easily (apart from some extreme shakin n breath holdin) has not contested since. ! ! ? ?

With just 4 lanes in use scores were going to be closer than usual. No surprise when we started with a draw with Tony and Jim winning BTCC with 14 each. My civic lacks grip and with no good luck coming my way I scored just 4. Yes Trigger that is just four in a class - beat that!

I did have a bit of luck in Ninco Vintage, and hiked my score by 2.5 to 10 and I wasn't last, actually my party car wasn't just green it was also quick on the straight.. Jim won with 12, Wes and Tony were just 1 behind.

Wes won Carrera GT with 14.

It was a lucky 13 for Jim as he won Narrow F1.

At the break Jim was leading with 50, just 1 ahead of Tony.

Geoff got to choose looser's extra class, much to my consternation he went for BTCC, bugger. I still came last but did score more points. Jim was now an a roll as he got the only full house.

Tony won the final class Open Open Wheel with 14. I rounded off a terrible evening by coming last again.

79 was enough for Jim to take the evenings honours with 79. Tony had closed the gap to just 2. Wes and I i had a few close races, he said it was like the good old days, I agreed as I had won most of our tussles. some how he had finnished with 20 more points than I, all good fun though. My measly 42 was just enough to beat Geoff, and that meant I was again best Clubman, something I didn't deserve.

We have 1 more round with these picks on Feb 17th. MFR club latest results.

Over two weeks races running till results on line must be a record (actually it's not). Many thanks to Keith who took a picture of the result sheet and emailed it to publishing HQ, whilst complying with all current isolationist regulations.

6 racers battled for historic honours in round 7, they ran on 5 lanes with 70's F1 run twice.

Peter got off to a good start with a full house of 25 in LMP. Peter won all other races apart from the 2nd F1 won by Tony with 18 and Open Open won by Jim with 24.

So for now we have the MFR club latest results.

Meanwhile please keep in touch the Check In! thread here, it's a good place to go till racing restarts:
