ADM Warmup Race #2

Post by Mark Fox »

Hi All,

The second of the warmup races for the ADM was held this past Saturday 21 January.

Classes raced were Slotworx Porsche Cup and Flexi Limited Sedan (with Cheetah IV horsepower).

Porsche Cup

This race had a fantastic battle between myself and Charles with never more than a lap between us for the3 duration of the whole race before I took the win by a fraction over 2 seconds - that was hard work for both of us for sure!

Darryl and Wayne had a similar stoush for the remaining podium position and after going into the last bracket with Wayne just in front with both on the same lap - disaster struck for Wayne with a broken lead-wire and that was that - Darryl for third.

Dave finished only a couple of laps behind Wayne with Neil finishing off the field.

A great run by Darryl saw him come from 7th after starting on Black with a sad bracket to hit the lead over Wayne who was looking strong to finish 1st - 2nd with Charles bringing up the 3rd spot.

Dave finished only 0.289 sec behind for 4th with Aaron lap further back showing some good form for what I believe was his first time on the track.

I had one of those days with a broken lead-wire near the end of the 4th bracket - time out while I fixed it in the extended lane change (hey it was a test race) and was flying again with all good lanes to come when the other wire went in the 6th bracket :( :roll: My mate Stoo reckons I will need to look at that ;).

Neil and Graeme circulated well to finish a few laps further back.

Great to see the old Hornsby track up and running. From all reports the track is better than ever. Kudos to Ron and his helpers - I'll try and come down one weekend for a race.
