44th Scalextric Club (15th October 2013)

Grand Touring cars are nearing the pace of Le Mans prototypes at the London Scalextric Club. Fastest laps near the 8.5s mark were achieved in a few races!

We were able to use all 6 lanes thanks to a good turn-out for this popular class. At just 2.5 minutes per race with short changes between races it made for a busy and action-packed evening.

Used the NSR Mosler I bought from Tony the other month. It has air tyres which aren’t legal but I’m allowed since I’m not in the championship.

Red Lane

Drove safe and careful, just a little behind a pair of drivers who had a crash or two each.

Fastest Lap 9.45s
Laps: 15.30
Position: 4th
Crashes 0!

Green Lane

Close with Bob but very slow marshall at a corner which wasn’t really being covered. We both crashed too much.

Fastest Lap 9.77s
Laps: 13.30

Clean drive but just off the pace.

Fastest Lap 9.58s
Laps: 14.80

Careful again, cleaner braids made car feel snappier. Eased off to be lapped by first 3 cars.

Friend of Rino got 4th in his final!

Red Lane

Dreadful driving by me. Got lapped in this 12 lap race and finished last. Only the leader goes through to the main final.
