December 29th - Goodwood themed Special Night (same as 3rd evening)
"just 4 fun", does NOT count towards the yearly championship. Report:
Turnout was much better this time, with 10 members keen to race. Using our formula of highest placed championship position paired with lowest, and so on, the 5 teams were set as follows;
Peter & Tim (P/T)
Keith & Dave (K/D)
Jim & Sandy (J/S)
Wes & Chris (W/C)
Steve & Will (S/W)
Peter preferred not to use the white lane, because of potential damage caused by running the barrier, so we set up for 18 minute stints on the other 5 lanes. Thankfully Peter's team were on Black lane first and he showed us all what he was prepared to let the black car suffer when "running the barrier"! This meant that fastest lap was set on the black lane in every session.
Black lane - P/T 85.8 laps (Fastest lap 10.98, Peter)
Blue lane - W/C 88 laps
Green lane - J/S 87.1 laps
Red lane - S/W 86.8 laps
Yellow lane - K/D 82.1 laps
Black lane - S/W 93.3 laps (Fastest lap 10.88, Will) (180.1)
Blue lane - J/S 90.2 laps (177.3)
Green lane - K/D 86.8 laps (168.9)
Red lane - W/C 90.6 laps (178.6)
Yellow lane - P/T 86.3 laps (172.1)
Black lane - W/C 97.5 laps (Fastest lap 10.34, Chris) (276.1)
Blue lane - K/D 92.5 laps (261.4)
Green lane - P/T 91.5 laps (263.6)
Red lane - J/S 92.7 laps (270)
Yellow lane - S/W 93.2 laps (273.3)
Black lane - J/S 96.5 laps (Fastest lap 9.98, Jim) (366.5)
Blue lane - P/T 96.1 laps (359.7)
Green lane - S/W 96.8 laps (370.1)
Red lane - K/D 90.3 laps (351.7)
Yellow lane - W/C 98.8 laps (374.9)
Black lane - K/D 95.7 laps (Fastest lap 9.96, Keith) (447.4)
Blue lane - S/W 100.7 laps (470.8)
Green lane - W/C 104 laps (478.9)
Red lane - P/T 96 laps (455.7)
Yellow lane - J/S 100.2 laps (466.7)
So the final result meant that the Hayling Hoonigans pairing of Wes & Chris have a 100% winning record at our Special nights when teamed together. Well done to Steve and Will for a steady run throughout the evening bagging them second place, particularly as this was Steve's first experience of playing "magic cranes"!
Final result was
Wes & Chris 478.9 laps
Steve & Will 470.8 laps
Jim & Sandy 466.7 laps
Peter & Tim 454.7 laps
Keith & Dave 447.4 laps

"just 4 fun", does NOT count towards the yearly championship.
3 teams of 2 ran 18 minute stints on blue, green and red while Jim took on overseeing.
By the end all teams were clocking over 100 laps per session and Peter set a new lowest ever lap record of 9.331 seconds in red, most other racers had beaten Peter’s long standing 9.7 record on the way. The near identical NSR Ford GTs were supplied and serviced by Peter which helped make for a close evening. 1 hour 48minutes racing finished thus:
Keith and Wes 634.6 laps, Will and Reuben 632.3 laps, Peter and Sandy 616.1 laps.
