My manager has booked a meeting with me on Wednesday until 5pm and Southern Rail have very helpfully changed the train times to really make sure you cannot make the connection at Three Bridges! Therefore I won't be at the Barn until just before 7. If I could be added to the race sheet and given a late heat, that would be great. Hopefully I can make a practise lap or two.
I managed to get some time to tinker with my car last night. New motor and new rear axle which seems to give it a lot more revs. I'm looking forward to seeing the difference on the track.
The championship tables are now done. It's all as per the finals sheet, but it's always good to see your name on the board for 2013
The interesting table is the Rookie one. Andy Parker has been bringing Matt and Ollie along for two years, helping with the marshalling and waiting... Now he's in pole position for a trophy, plus 13th place in his first Mod race wasn't bad. And a new 'family' (Matt can be added as an honorary Parker) into the Family Championship:
I thought Wednesday was a bit déjà vous up in the 'A' final. Like last January, two of us were very close on the heels of John's MR-1. The first part of the race was incredibly close and John was only a couple of feet in front when Mike took us both out at turn two
My Mega-G continues to surprise me. There were upgrades I was planning, but the car was identical to what finished in October (dirt included).
The website is finally updated for 2013. You may need to refresh your browser to see the changes. And I need to remember to add the code to do the refresh automatically.
I hadn't seen the tables as my work PC somehow doesn't show them but I had seen that there was a Rookie table and I was trying to work out who that would be. Of course it was Andy! Good to see him racing.
Your Mega G was amazingly quick. It was really good to see a mix of chassis at the sharp end.
I've just spent lots more money with Lucky Bob. Lots of spacers for axles, a variety of wheels, a gear or two and a chassis spreader for SG+ cars as Mike didn't look too impressed when I said he could do all my knackered cars! He did manage an arm change in a matter of minutes though.
