RichP sets the pace with a 7.349 but there is less than a quarter of a second between the top 4.
Much hope had been pinned on the Slot.It Group C cars living up to their reputation and they didn't disappoint. The racing was unbelievably close with the lead changing hands throughout individual heats. One deslot could see the leader dropping to the back and struggling to get back on terms and there were many, many laps with side-by-side racing. Keith suffered from a binding axle but this was rectified at half time when the problem was identified and the offending axle stopper eased by a few thou. This is going to be a season-long battle with lap times this close.
Heat 10 laps are down because there was a short on the track and we lost about a minute race time. Heat 8 saw zero laps from Gareth even though he was racing - his LED must not have been registering and we didn't notice. RichP and RichF were separated by 2 laps and Mike and Jason by one lap although neither Jason or RichF suffered the lower lap count from heat 10.
