Club Championships 2015 (week 25 of 36) – Open GT, Friday 24th July


lewis_gt3.jpg
Open GT’s took to the track on Friday evening. This class is where we get to race our fastest GT and Sports cars. Lewis Gough produced a fantastic drive with his NSR Aston GT3 qualifying second and taking maximum points from the A Final. His run on blue lane in the last heat saw him set a new outright track record of 7.40 seconds. Nick Huxley put up a strong fight in the heats top qualifying by 0.44 of a lap.  Meanwhile new member Andrew Pillinger raced with us for the first time – as did Matt Howard who won the ‘Extra’ final first time out!  The ongoing battle between Malcolm Scotto and Kevin Sharples continued with Kev taking his first and second heat wins this time out.  And the fun wasn’t just restricted to the track; a failed light bulb in the toilet meant using a torch (provided by Malcolm) if you wanted to be sure of your aim. At least one member was seen to be desperate enough to borrow said torch and brave the banter - ooh er missus!
 
Here are the main race results…
 
 

Open GT (International track / 4x3 min heats and Finals): Heats – TQ. Nick Huxley 95.62 laps, 2.Lewis Gough 95.18, 3. Roy Pritchards 94.64, 4. Chris Aston 94.43 (12 racers).

To give new members the opportunity to experience the A Final format, we ran an ‘Extra’ Final.  The driver line-up included first-timer Matt Howard, new members Andrew and Erik and 9 year-old Mark from our Tuesday night Juniors club. Here are the results – good racing everybody!

Wolves Slotcar Club’s “Classics” race-nights are usually close-run affairs – and last Friday evening was no exception – the top four drivers being separated by just over a lap after 12 minutes of racing in the heats. The 1/32 scale models of pre-1974 Sports/GT cars are run in virtually standard trim, with 20k short-can motors (NSR Shark or Scaleauto 008B only) fitted with an 11-tooth pinion driving 10mm max width rear tyres. Several manufactures are producing competitive slot cars – NSR and Slot.it being the two most popular makes. Chris Aston’s Slot.it Matra-Simca MS670B set the pace on Friday, top qualifying in the heats with fastest laps on all 4 lanes, before going on to win the A-Final. In tenth place, and 10 laps down after the heats, Nick Wixon had to dig deep to find race-winning pace. And find it he did! Stepping up through the D, C and B Finals to take 4th overall in the A Final. Nick was racing with a Slot.it GT40 fitted with a Scaleauto 20k motor (sidewinder set-up).

Pre ’74 Classics (International track / 4x3 min heats and Finals): Heats – TQ. Chris Aston 90.04 laps, 2. Roy Pritchards 89.88, 3. Ashley Evans 89.43, 4. Nick Huxley 89.03 (12 racers).
