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.
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.
|Crashes||1 small one|
Carnage! Kept bouncing off of other crashed cars so the Marshalls were already busy!
|Crashes||2 little ones|
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.
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.
|Crashes||1 near the end|
