With plenty of WHO regulars away on holiday, taking part in other half-
Fourteen racers were divided into five teams, with Deborah and Keith -
Of the other four teams, Daniel was joined by Andy and WHO debutant Bob in ‘Micro
Truck Rustlers’. Alex turned down his dad, picked Simon and drew Mike’s name out
of the teapot -
Five teams meant running the segments with two teams and three teams in each. Alex drew lots and the first two teams, Micro Truck Rustlers and Bone Crushers would run as the pair.
There was a fair chance, with the lack of traffic on track, we would see some heavy scoring and the previous race record of 752.45 laps in 60 minutes might be broken. And after the first 15 minutes, it certainly looked that way…
The first segment saw the Beauty and The Beast lead the way with a massive 213.75
laps on red lane. Bone Crushers also broke the 200 lap mark with 209.75 on blue.
And it was close behind -
Those close margins saw the order turned on its head -
The order at halfway was Fireballs, Bone Crushers, Rustlers, B&B and Eaton Rifles.
Our Micro Scalextric team races have always been a night when the juniors take centre-
All of which meant the grown-
Back on the track, everyone was putting in great performances. During the third segment,
the Fireballs held on to their lead with an excellent 200.95 lap run in white. The
Rustlers had trimmed the advantage back to just over seven laps and the Eaton Rifles
had put themselves well into contention -
Those would be the three to contest the win in the final fifteen minutes. The other two had just dropped back a little too much.
The first pair went off and Bone Crushers certainly had the Rustlers in their sights. Although 32 laps back, Alex’s team had the advantage of the fast yellow lane and three drivers determined to win their duel. If Daniel’s Rustlers failed to master white lane, it could be close.
And it was. Taking over for the final 5 minutes, Daniel just managed to hold on, finishing four laps ahead overall. With scores of 789.75 and 785.05 laps, both teams had smashed the previous hour record. But would that be enough for the Micro Truck Rustlers to win the race?
It wasn’t. The Fireballs and the Eaton Rifles battle was truly flat-
Congratulations to the Flat-
Well done to our runners-
Many thanks to everyone for making it such an enjoyable evening’s racing and for
breaking another record -
Ash’s win consolidates his lead in the Micro Scalextric Championship, the next round
is in the February half-
