Race Report: Lewis, Ashley and Nick Wixon joined the Yule Tide Cup for round 2 of the series. As early as heat three, it was clear that Ashley’s Slot.it Inline lap records were at risk, with Lewis knocking a tenth off the lap record for red lane in his first run. And that was just for starters; by the end of the heats Lewis had demolished the lap records for all four lanes, taking the win by nearly 4 laps ahead of the field. The battle for second between Roy and Ashley was a lot closer – Roy taking the place by 0.05 laps ahead of Ashley.

Fastest laps:  Lewis set 4 new lap records for Slot.it In-lines; White lane:  7.454s, Yellow lane: 7.391s, Red lane: 7.357s, Blue lane: 7.449s.

Yule Tide Cup Round 1 - Slot.it In-lines, Aldersley track, 4x3 min heats and finals.

A CLEAN SWEEP FOR ROY

This winter’s Yule Tide Cup kicked-off with Slot.it In-lines on the Aldersley track. Twelve racers line-up for the racing – including visiting slot racer Rob W. The draw for starting lanes saw Roy’s name first out of the hat. This was a sign of things to come because Roy top qualified in the heats and, together with Nick H, went straight through to the ‘A’ final. Richy, Chris, Ian and Bill battled their way through the step-ups with Richy and Chris taking the two remaining slots in the top final. An “off” by Roy on lap 4 of the 3 minute ‘A’ final lost him 2 seconds. But a series of 6.6 second laps saw Roy regain the lead from Nick before the halfway point. Meanwhile Richy and Chris were having their own battle for third place which went down to the last lap. Contact between the two took Richy off the track briefly on lap 15 – but Chris slowed to let him catch-up and continue their race. When the 3 minutes were up Roy crossed the line ahead of Nick.  A lap down on the leading pair, Chris took third having passed Richy who’d had a big moment going through the final esses on their last lap.  Racing throughout the field had been very close with the top 7 drivers all running six second laps in the heats.  Fastest lap went to Roy with a 6.663 second lap on Yellow lane in the ‘A’ final with his Slot.it Porsche 911 GT1. 

Round 1 was a clean-sweep for Roy; First out of the hat (!), Top Qualifier, Finals Winner and Fastest lap. Other notable performances came from visitor Rob who did well, beating several home members.  Special mention also to young Mark who pushed his Dad Erik hard all evening.

This Friday it’s back to the International track and Round 2 of the Yule Tide Cup - Slot.it In-lines (4x4 minute heats, distance totals). Doors open 7pm, racing starts 8pm (please let Malcolm know that you will be racing).  Can Roy continue his winning form? REV.
