Eighteen racers took to the grid on a chilly February evening in Goring. It was our
third Micro Scalextric championship race -
The track looked relatively simple with some nice flowing corners, but a switchback
after turn two and a tight bus stop complex were bound to catch people out -
Some racers did well from the start. Simon -
Another racer to impress early on was Tyler. Running in the first group, his first two scores put him comfortably in the 'A' final after the first round of heats.
Everyone ran better second time round and we ended up with some tasty looking finals
The E final saw newcomer Stephen Lewis hold his nerve and hold off Mike McCann for
the win. We hope to see Stephen back soon -
Another rookie was Stephen's friend Howard, who took an excellent third in the D
final. Ahead of Howard, Ned beat championship-
The C final was a formality once Callum got into his stride in red lane. Coming home
in Callum's wake were Josh, Jonah and regular Scalextric racer Paul -
As mentioned, the B final was the junior medal showdown. Hannah had set the best score of the night in yellow and chose that lane for the final, with Tyler eagerly taking red lane. Stephen was pretty happy with blue, so it promised to be a close race.
Things soon unravelled for Hannah and a few too many crashes left her with too many
laps to catch up. Tyler drove beautifully to win the final, followed by Duncan with
a steady drive in white. Stephen just pipped Hannah at the end, which would have
been the last straw -
The A final promised much, but was over almost as soon as it started. With Darren and Simon crashing early on, Mike built a good lead with Andy steady but slow in second.
By the time Darren and Simon got in the groove and Mike had a few wobbles, it was
too late -
So congrats to Mike for his first win in 2013 and to Tyler for his first junior medal for nearly three years!
Thanks to everyone for making it such a good night's racing, especially to Simon
for running Race Control and Darren for running the pits -
The next Micro Scalextric race is a team race on 29 May -
