Club meetings in JUNE. r = reverse direction, s = NNR special night, RED = CANCELLED
On the 29th of December 2013 all three Bolwextric Clubs came together for a combined afternoon/evening of racing.
This was to mark 10 years (the first 10 years) of slot car Club racing at Manor Farm Raceway, Clanfield.
Proceedings started with a meeting of The Manor Farm Raceway Slot Club using the current classes.
After a short break racing restarted under Bolwextric Slot Car Club rules, with cars picked from Bolwextric car sets and racing in reverse direction.
To bolster flagging energy levels take away food was bought in and then racers were ready for the final part of the celebrations.
No Name Racing Club runs on alternate Thursday evenings using longer 10 lap races, again the 4 classes of cars were from the current series.
The results from the 3 parts were sorted, with plenty of counting back needed, then the winners were declared.
All racing was close and enjoyable with some fine driving but in the end the overall victor was clearly Chris on 38, followed closely by Keith 28, then Jim 27.
The official scores are pictured on right but what if we counted only our best two rounds? Like this:
Chris 28, Keith 22, Jim 20, Tony 20, Wes 18, Peter 14, Matt 14, Will 11, Kev 9, Gareth 8 and Sandy 5.
Oh blow it - I still didn’t win - Will.
