WHO Mod -
The festive lights may still have been twinkling in the Barn but the racers of WHO have sloughed off 2019’s season like an old skin and were fresh and raring for the start of 2020’s racing, particularly the drivers clutching new Vipers of which I counted at least six and there were probably more.
Simon had designed us a monster track with two monster straights, a double switchback which caught every driver multiple times and a boot shape stadium section.
Twenty six drivers were on the grid. It was an absolute pleasure to see John, Alex and Aiden returning and we welcomed Gary, Laurence and Waseem for their first races.
Alex was the first driver to catch the eye in the heats with a very fast but oh so fragile car. Fortunately the Ferrigno pits wouldn’t have disgraced a full size race team (I have pitbox envy!) and John was able to keep him on the road. Following him Mike D, Oliver, Matthew, Keith and Andy were raising the bar ever higher with some huge scores.
After the first round of heats it was Andy leading the way with a very tight group of Jerome, Matthew and John behind him. Simon was top Tuner with what looked to be a very quick Lifelike. Jerome was top Junior but Oliver had a quick car and was hopeful of reeling him in.
The Player Power continued through the second batch of heats with 3 top scores, Jerome grabbing the other as he cemented 2nd on the grid. Keith bumped Matthew back into the B Final by just under a lap while John equalled Matthew’s score. The gaps remained tight throughout the field with Deborah in 6th down to Peter in 10th separated by just 2 laps.
Simon took Tuners pole position and Duncan would have to beat a pair of Vipers in his final to have a chance of winning Tuners.

So congratulations to our winner Andy, Junior winner Jerome, Tuners winner Simon and Rookie Laurence. Thanks to the set up and break down crews and our race control team of Ash and Ryan.
Finally, just a quick note to say that I am now bringing an additional box to races. If you have a body repair or other work you need me to get done for you, bag up and label your car with what you want doing and pop it in there. I’ll have it back to you for the next race. I don’t charge but I do ask that you cover the cost of any parts required.
