Today's event allowed eight "Heart of England" regulars to race against four "Slot Festival" visitors, and the racing on the 3 lane Slot Fire track proved to be very enjoyable with some tense moments as the racers had to negotiate the chicane section on the track - and after 12 heats the distances achieved by each racer after 3 x 2 minute heats on each lane were as follows :

1 - James Noake 54.90
2 - Mark Warburton 53.80
3 - Chris Aston 51.30
4 - Mike Shryane 50.50
5 - Dave Homer 49.70
6 - Steve Beach 49.50
7 - Malcolm Scotto 49.40
8 - Maurizio Ferrari 48.10
9 - Alex Young 44.60
10 - Dale Thursfield 44.50
11 - Andi Rowland 41.60
12 - Simon Young 40.40

We then ran ladder finals based on these heats whereby the three lowest qualifiers raced off against each other with a place in the next final being the prize for the winner. This process continued until the top two went through to meet Bearwood Club Champion & current 2014 Heart of England "Johnson Class" leader James Noake in the "A" final.

After some great racing and a few thrills & spills courtesy of the chicane amongst other things then the final placings were as follows :

1 - Mark Warburton
2 - James Noake
3 - Chris Aston
4 - Dave Homer
5 - Mike Shryane
6 - Steve Beach
7 - Malcolm Scotto
8 - Dale Thursfield
9 - Alex Young
10 - Andi Rowland (for Maurizio)
11 - Andi Rowland
12 - Simon Young

Got to say a big "Thank You" to Policar for sponsoring today's event and also to everyone who joined in with the racing and the marshalling around the track.

In true "Heart of England" style these 1970's F1 cars proved yet again to be great fun on the track - and considering that they are around 40 years old that's just amazing really, isn't it ?

I certainly had great fun racing - sorry I missed the finals as I didn't understand there was one, so I went back to the booth!
Thank you Andi for providing a great March 711 which will have a honour place in my collection!

..............sorry no, they were just some of my cars purely for some early photos of the track etc before everyone came.

There was an official Pendle Slot Racing photographer present as well as Richard from Slot Magazine so I guess they will find their way onto the Forums / into the Magazines in due course.
