I only came alomng to watch the 1/24 th class and ended up staying all day. Great racing by all and some pretty fantastic cars to boot. Well done everybody!!! Mega nostalgia.

Really enjoyed the meeting today chaps. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Some great racing and a very close finish in the 1/24. Brilliant. Thanks to Graham for doing the race results and to Alan for letting me the use of his throttle and 1/32 Ferrari GTO and Tony for his Matich 1/24 after my own Ferrari packed up into its second race.

Graham, best you get working on a 17 and 18 driver rotation
in case the meeting gets even more popular

Great day - the best Summer Classic since I started racing again. Thanks to Alan for organising the meeting and to Graham for unravelling the mysteries of our new software.

Thanks to everyone who attended particularly those from other clubs who made the effort to come along. Hope to see you all and possibly one or two more next year.

Going to attempt to post pictures so if this doesn't work apologies
Not sure why but instead of one image it's slink to all my Photobucket pics but the images of Sundays event are 1 through 15 cheers Alan
Also if any of our members fell a bit nostalgic there are some pics of the ninco track we used to have and the four camper vans with trailers I made for one of our special nights feel a bit older seeing those though
Here are a few of Chris Pomeroy's pictures of the prize giving at the Summer Classic.

Hi David,

Many thanks for posting Chris's pictures. As I said in my previous posting, there were some fantastic cars. Surprise of all was Steve's 1/24th Ford P68. I can't even remember seeing one of these back in the 70's.

Top quality cars and top quality racing.

Thanks to everyone for a great day.

Thanks David I could not work out how to do the pics so they just appear like that cheers alan
Thanks SSRC and Alan for a good days racing, good to be 4th best in 1/32 racing, still a lot to do to catch the top 3!

Thanks everyone for an very good natured and fun day's racing. Looking forward to next time.

Jonathon and Mike
