39th Scalextric Club (13th August 2013)

Class and Can-Am beasts stampede around the London Scalextric Club this evening. All the regulars were back from holidays so it was quite a full house!

We ran all 6 lanes but stretched the marshals a bit thin, using 1 less than normal.

Green Lane

Toughest lane but clean first race. Others had some slow marshalling as we are spreading them thin to run all 6 lanes. Pleased with this.

Blue Lane

Drove super clean with fast, consistent laps. Wasn’t tempted to over-stretch myself even as other drivers were slowly sneaking up on me. A couple of times the chasers got within a metre but then crashed!

Really proud of this performance and it was good enough to go through to the next final.

Fastest Lap 9.35s
Laps: 15
Position: 2nd!
Crashes 0!

Green Lane

Gah, ended up on the worst lane. I think lane choice is given in order of furthest distance covered during the main event and I probably covered the least distance.

Oh well, it was a privilege to get through to this level.

Fastest Lap 9.63s
Laps: 15
Position: Last!
Crashes 1 near the end
