5th London Scalextric Club (24th July 2012)

This evening a new family arrived all the way from Dagenham. The mum drove round at the same speed and managed more laps than her kid. The dad had a go as well and was faster than them both but missed one braking point each lap, which lost him quite a bit of time.

I really struggled with the cars this evening, they seemed to have a very narrow power band. Towards the end I just drove them slowly and posted my fastest lap of the evening! Watching the other drivers, everyone looked slow through the middle of most corners. I was simply being impatient with the throttle before that.

It was a fun evening, quite a few jokes and some close racing by the best drivers.
