40th Scalextric Club (20th August 2013)

A sleek field of GT cars grace the London Scalextric Club track tonight.

We used 5 of the 6 lanes and ran 3 minutes per race.

Lots of silly crashes.

Fastest Lap 8.96s
Laps: 18.30
Position: 5th

White Lane

Best lane but wasted it. Lots of consistently fast laps towards the end but the damage was done.

Fastest Lap 8.91s
Laps: 19.35
Position: 4th
Crashes 3

Blue Lane

Tried the blue club controller but it felt a bit ropey. Didn’t get used to it during this race.

Fastest Lap 9.02s
Laps: 18.20
Position: 3rd
Crashes 3

Yellow Lane

Didn’t feel fast but at least it was a clean race, so a good overall distance.

Fastest Lap 9.10s
Laps: 19.35
Position: 3rd
Crashes 0


Blue Lane

Was that really my lap time? Maybe I looked at the wrong column. Either way, finally got the hang of this controller to have a clean, fast race. Everyone behind me crashed at least once.

Fastest Lap 8.73s?!
Laps: 12.00
Position: 2nd!
Crashes 0!

Red Lane

Close this lane instead of brown. Very slow marshall when I crashed in the loop due to the guide not centering.

Wasn’t quite on the pace of the leaders but might have pressured someone into a mistake later on. One crash is all it takes to go from hero to zero!

Fastest Lap 9.09s
Laps: 12.00
Position: 3rd
Crashes 1
