The adjustable brakes went down really well. Most people started on about 'half brakes' and then experimented. A lot of people reckoned that adjusting the brakes improved their performance, especially on the gutter lanes. But only if racers remembered to fiddle with their knobs before the lights went green.
Mike's module certainly spread the drivers out and gave better line-of sight too. Plus Race Control moved away a little.
Gareth switched from his usual 'Various' to a mere 'Several' last night. One day he will find a couple of chassis to concentrate on
His Life Like was pretty fast, so Ned's 'C' final win was all the more impressive.
Ned and Lee H look like they could have quite a battle for Rookie of the Year. That is if Ned is allowed a late night per month and Lee can manage the trip down from Suffolk - both were damn keen to do so last night
It was good to see Chris and Louis back for their second visit and welcome to Duncan who did well on his debut. Those three will be looking at Rookie of the Year honours too.
I'd rate Mike McCann's performance as a highlight of the night too. It was great to see him come to grips with a really fast car - a steep learning curve - and he took that 'D' final with aplomb.
I wouldn't be surprised to see some more of the Harden Creek HPX2s on the Mod grid this year and next. The club shop will be re-stocking soon, I understand.
Sadly, time ran out and we didn't see the Sprint Cars make any runs...
I was very happy with my Mega-G. My big problem was the rear
bushing popping out in two heats and twice in the final. I need to stop that next time and then John's Marchon will be toast
