Race report 4WD RatRace Summer Series Rnd 1

 

I had a busy day ahead of me due to organising my RCSkool students on race day as we mix races with them and 4WD RatRAce so with help I knew I would be busy so I decided to get there early to sort and test my car out before the race.

I checked it over and all seemed good, so with that aside I concentrated on the students and getting their cars and selves ready.

In practice I had a terrible run in round 1 only managing a slow medium time 46.346 and best lap of 14.041, so I changed a few things on the car and got set for round 2 of practice, I was happier with the car and the track and a bit of concentration was back on my part, I got a better medium time of 42.598 and a best lap of 13.718 so much better.

Qualifying round 1, 2, 3 and 4

I was 2nd to start so had a bit of work to do and got 19 laps, best time 14.440 and medium time 15.608 this was 1st TQ
Round 2 saw an improvement again with 20 laps, best time 14.258 and medium time 15.532 again TQ
Round 3 saw improved medium time of 15.355 TQ
Round 4 I needed to help the students and with TQ wrapped up that is what I did.

A-Final results best 2 from 3

Heat 1 starting 1st on the frid, nerves got a hold of me and I messed up the lap 5 and had to make my way back up to the top spot and finish one lap ahead of the field, so good but not happy still only 20 laps and wanted to break into 21.

Heat 2 was fantastic for me I led from start to finish and got in 21 laps which was amazing for me.

So a busy but fantastic day, the students had their first ever 8 driver A-Final which was an interesting race to watch 🙂
