The 22nd of September saw us racing at Dave's place and it was also Ronan's (that's me!) 40th birthday and Paul very kindly brought a cake (which was pretty much devoured!).



6 in total turned up on the night, Ronan, Paul, Ed, Dave, Bryan and George.








Race 1 was Bryan's choice and he went for American cars/"Yank Tanks" as he wanted to race his new Scalextric General Lee:


Bryan was on yellow (Scalextric General Lee), Dave was on red (Carrera black Charger), George was on blue (Carrera Ford Torino) and Paul was on silver (Revell Nascar).



The result was:

1. Dave
2. Bryan +Fastest Lap (+FL)
3. Paul
4. George

Paul would have done a lot better except for the fact we were using a slot.it controller on the silver lane and he had a bit of trouble setting it up.

Race 2 was Dave's choice and he picked SCX rally cars:

Dave was on yellow (Lancia Delta), Ed was on red (started with a Porsche 959, finished with a Ferrari F40), Ronan was on blue (Talbot Sunbeam) and Bryan was on silver (Fiat 124).





Ed started out with his green 959 which was quick for the first couple of laps until it lost a wheel! If he had been using a Citroen DS he might have been able to continue (!) but he ran to his car box and got his SCX F40 and still managed to finish 3rd plus get the fastest lap.

The result was:

1. Dave
2. Ronan
3. Ed +FL
4. Bryan

Race 3 was Ed's pick and he went for Ninco GTs:

Ed was on yellow (Audi R8 GT), George was on red (Porsche 997), Paul was on blue (Ford GT) and Dave was on silver (Lamborghini Gallardo)



The result was:

1. Ed
2. Paul +FL
3. Dave
4. George

It was very close at the finish with Ed just beating Paul at the end (how close it was can be seen in these photos):





Race 4 was George's pick and he chose modern LMP cars:

George was on yellow (Scalextric Peugeot 908), Ronan was on red (SCX Audi R8 pro), Bryan was on blue (Scalextric Aston Martin LMP1) and Ed was on silver (Scalextric Porsche RS Spyder).





The result was:

1. Ronan +FL
2. Ed
3. George
4. Bryan

Race 5 was Ronan's choice and he picked classic NSRs:

Ronan was on yellow (Ford P68 Gulf), Paul was on red (Ford P68 Alan Mann Racing), Dave was on blue (No 24 Porsche 917K) and George was on silver (Ford GT40 MkIV).





The result was:

1. Ronan +FL
2. Dave
3. Paul
4. George

Race 6 was Paul's choice and he picked Fly Vipers:

All the cars were Fly Vipers of some sort and the order was Paul on yellow, Bryan on red, Ed on blue and Ronan on silver.



The result was:

1. Ed
2. Paul +FL
3. Ronan
4. Bryan

The final scores were:

1st Ronan (13 points +2 FL)
2nd Ed (13 points +1 FL)
3rd Dave (13 points, no FL)
4th Paul (10 points)
5th Bryan (6 points)
6th George (5 points)

So a three way tie for 1st place decided by the number of fastest laps! Another good nights racing I think!
