Our third Micro Scalextric Championship season is certainly one for the team racers
We had a very healthy August turn-
As always, it was junior racers who captained the teams, each picking one of the
top eight grown-
Oscar was making his WHO debut as captain of Captain Britain Cars. Being son of a WHO champion (Andrew) and brother of a junior champion (Hannah), Oscar has a fine pedigree. Ned brought along Joe, another WHO newcomer. But had the Ned and Mike been training him back at Dadson HQ?
It was Ned's Team Name who set the pace in the first fifteen minutes. Ned was joined
by Duncan, Andrew and Paul in what was a very strong team. Their score of 193 laps
was five ahead of Need for Laps and Team Ploppy. Close behind were The Bangers and
Bumper Trucks, but the other three teams had conceded serious laps. One Flew Over
The Cuckoo's Nest and #einstein (that's Hashtag Einstein) had both got the tricky
blue lane out of the way, but Captain Britain Cars had given the one-
One Flew Over and #einstein moved from blue to red lane for the second fifteen minutes and they really picked up the pace. It was Hannah, Stephen and Hayley who won the segment with the top score of the evening so far, just three quarters of a lap ahead of the One Flew Over crew of Joe, John and Jamie. But it was The Bangers who leapt into the race lead after a great run on yellow and with Team Name struggling a little in blue. Ned's boys were still in second place, just ahead of Aaron, Neil and Daniel, aka Need for Laps.
Team Name bounced back with an awesome score of 198 laps in red, winning the segment
and pulling out a very useful twelve lap lead in the race over second placed #einstein.
The Bangers -
With only 36 laps between first and last place, anyone could still win the race in the last fifteen minutes. The first group went first and it was Team Ploppy who squeezed out a humongous 208 lap score on red lane to put themselves in pole position with a 738 lap total. With the last four teams to run, Team Name would need a solid 173 laps to win and The Bangers were sitting pretty should they slip up...
It was a fast and furious end to the race with Joe, John and Jamie setting the top
score of the night on yellow lane -
A great performance by Team Name -
Thanks to everyone for making it an excellent night at the Barn, particularly to Duncan, Daniel and Hayley who put in a great shift on race control, keeping us informed, amused and on our toes all evening.
Round two of the championship is on Wednesday 28 October and it’s another team race,
this time on the Micro Spa-
