WHO Nascar -
The Nascar class at WHO has become a real favourite, with some great-
This time out we went short-
We also had time to look over the new AFX Endurance Champions set, fresh from Sussex Model Centre in Worthing, plus a couple of Auto World Indy Cars, now stocked by Slot Cars Direct in Derby. Then it was back to the racing...
The heats were quick and sometimes chaotically scrappy. The big run-
At the half way stage, it was no surprise that Mike D was top of the pile, followed by John, Andy Player and Keith. Aaron had put in a couple of cracking opening heats and was comfortably top junior. Not much changed at the top after the second pair of heats, however in the battle for the junior medal, Ned recovered well to beat Aaron's aggregate heat score by half a lap.
After winning the WHO Mod race last time out, Corey found himself dead last and in
the G final with Jonathon, Aiden and Deborah. All had struggled in the heats but
they now had the opportunity to put things right. Corey crashed at the first corner
and that summed up his night with the Mega-
Up in the F final, it was a case of déjà vu, as a close battle between red and white
lanes ensued. This time is was Mike McCann in the outer white lane and Rick in red.
It was good to see Rick's quick Mega-
There was a nice variety of cars in the E final -
As the clock ran down, Neil just eased into the lead, only for Ash to pass back again. Out of the blue, an off in Turn Four ended Neil's chances. Ash crossed the line the winner, with Neil a lap and a half back and just half a lap ahead of Mike. Alex's score in yellow was a good one, but only enough for fourth.
After all that excitement, the D final looked a straightforward win for Aaron to
give him a shot against Ned to win the junior medal. His Super-
Aaron's lead swiftly evaporated as the marshals struggled with the car. By the time
he was back on track, both Ash and Andy had slipped past and there was no time to
catch them. That was massive bad luck on a day when Aaron has really found some potential
It was back to some extremely close racing in the C final. This time Ash couldn't
stay with the other three, who were lapping very quickly and reasonably error-
With not long to go, Ned and Tony came together, were marshalled beautifully and
were back at it, with a hopeful Simon just a little bit closer. Perhaps Ned got back
into his rhythm quicker or suddenly found a little more pace. Either way, he finished
almost the length of the back straight ahead of Tony -
The B final was another enthralling race. Stephen headed off into an early lead,
with his Super-
With half a minute to go, the gap was the same, but now Keith was leading the challenge.
The pressure was getting to everyone, Stephen pulling out a couple more laps before
he had a late off in Turn One, which could have proved very costly. The marshals
did their job and Stephen held his nerve, giving him a well-
Stephen moved up to yellow lane in the A final, with pole-
All his errors had got to Mike. Past experience suggested he would either get his
act together or fall apart. Andy was hoping for the latter, but the club champion
was on a charge that would be fast and error-
Huge congratulations to Mike on his win -
The ovals will get bigger this season, but I think the short-
