Well what a waste of time and money that was 8 for a club race, to steep. Dont want to diss the club but nitros and electric dont mix... Colchesters track layout was rather tight, they have a choice of having the straight on either side of the track and choose to have it under the rostrum, not good as it is narrower than the straight on the other side, not happy. Ok if you race there all the time but for us not a good meet. Me and scott suffered from cars spining out nearly all day and they also mix 27t and 19t???. The locals copped fine but with nitro exhaust oil over the track just couldnt find a good set up. Tryed every front diff u can think of, still no joy. I will be there for the STCC but neter again.

P.W. Q2ND B FINISHED 2ND B

S.E. Q9TH A FINISHED 9/10TH A, NOT TO SURE.

M.Y. Q5TH A FINISHED 7TH A GOT BASHED LEG 1. FINISHED 4TH LEG 2 scratch

A Lesson learnt.

Well done to the 3 NRCCV drivers and the transport who braved Wet London Racing Centre last Sunday.
Matt enjoyed his first outdoors race even if he only had a couple of races due to the meeting being called off due to rain.
Billy seems to have found a good set up for his Max (I wonder how?) now and I'm sure he's looking forward to the National this Sunday, good luck.
Scotty seems to be going from stength to strength with his now bullet proof Cyclone and clocked up 19 312 in the wet, lets hope he can pull one out of the bag Sunday and get some good qualy's in .
Don't forget it's a 8.00pm start Tuesday and we have to be out by 11.30pm, This will be the times for the next 4 meetings we have due to a double booking.

It was good and as Scott was saying it was worth the practice. Both me and Scott managed to see how our cars where. Both are handling amazingly which is good. So this sunday should be good and if my car continues to handle the same. It will be my best race ever.

Love the setup. Thanks mark

PostSubject: W.L.R.C. National Results & Race report. 20-05-07.   Mon May 21, 2007 2:54 pm

W.L.R.C NATIONAL 20TH MAY 2007


Reporter & Photo's: Mark Young.







On arrival to WLRC at 7.00am we were greeted with a sunny start to the day and the sun stayed with us all day fortunatley, but it did cloud over slighty midday so the temperature dropped very slightly giving the motors a breather for round 2, so there were not many blown motors at this meeting, but quite a few smelly hot ones getting ready to go critical.
Today Mark,Scotty and Billy were competing in the 19 turn class with the new 4 cell experimental class running alongside us for the second time (no drivers raced at the first National at Snetterton) but this time there were 4 drivers booked in so someone would be going home trophy less. The Mod and Stock drivers were at Aldershott were there were a few top drivers having a break from racing so numbers were down slightly there, they will now be playing catch up for the rest of the season. On to the qualifiying.
Round 1.
After much testing at this track spirits were high and we were all hoping for a good days racing and better results than we previously had.
Scotty clocked up a fast 16 / 300.77 almost a 17 lapper in heat 2 and won his race, always good to get a good finish in your first race.
Billy was in the following heat 3 and put in a fast 14 / 300.63 moving up one postion from the start line but seemed to be off his normal pase.
Mark was in with a mixture of drivers, for some reason there were two brothers aged 13 and 11 in this heat which we all thought were going to create a problem during qualifing , but they both drove exceptionally well for their age considering the pressure of driving at a National against some of the countries top drivers, well done, Michael and Luke. Mark put in a reasonable time of 17 / 301.21 and finished third but had some handeling issues to sort out for the qualiy.
Round 2.
The track had now warmed up and lap times had started to fall. Tyre warmers were still in use and with most drivers now using the Trinty Tyre Tweak additive the tyres were gripping very well indeed.
Scotty put in another 16 lapper with a time of 16 / 305.41 slower than his first round but with a few quicker lap times. Tyres were the main issue this time, so new ones for the final qualiy were the order, fingers crossed.
Billy was still suffering from a hard qualifiying heat and only managed a 14 / 316.24 slower than his round one time.
Mark managed to get the car handeling a little bit better and was now lapping mor consistantley and popped a 18 / 315.24 and finished second. A new personal best time by one second for him so he was very happy.
Round 3.
S.O.B. time for us all for the final round of qualifing. The track temperature was now at the highest so gearing would be critical. With fresh tyres and different car set ups for most of us this was it.
Scotty pulled one out of the bag and won his race on a 17 / 312.11 not a bad time all things considered.
Billy had driving head on at last and draged his car around to finish second in his race on 16 / 309.64. We have all had days like this Billy.
Mark put in another personal best on a 18 / 310.48 and finished second behind Richard Thorpe who made the A after a fine drive. Marks motor dropped off the pace after lap 9, up until then he was doing consistant 16 second laps but the heat must have got to the motor as he then dropped off the pace slightly and slowed to 17 second laps. IF. Unfortunatley on lap 13 (unlucky for some) Mark got tangled up with two back markers and lost 4 seconds, so would have qualified higher and had an even better personal time than previous, see happens to the best of us, never mind that's racing for you.

Billy's well prepaired and maintained hair.
Qualifing Positions after Round 3.

41. Billy Michael 16 / 309.64
38. Scott Everitt 17 / 312.11
16. Mark Young 18 / 310.48
Final Positions.
Two leg finals are not everyones cup of tea especially me as many know, there basicaly too unpredictable, and the results were to prove this.
Billy did a great job of securing 3rd place after a race long battle with car 7 and 3. He could not repeat his performance in leg 2 and finished 8th this gave him 6th place overall.
Scotty put in some fine laps and had a 9th in leg 1 and moved up to 6th in leg 2 giving him 9th overall.
Mark had a hard time in both finals due to several racing incident's not of his own doing, but from the start of both legs managed to move into 4th and 3rd positions from 6th on the grid so was happy with the performance of the MX707R. With a 7th and a 10th he finished 9th overall but was still happy after beating several very good rival drivers in qualifying and proving that the Max has got what it takes to beat the more expensive cars on the market.

Overall Championship Positions. Out of 61 drivers.
20th Mark Young
32nd Scott Everitt
35th Billy Michael
F2 Championship. Out of 40, F2 drivers.
7th Mark Young
??th Scott Everitt (no position posted as of yet?)
17th Billy Michael

We all had a brilliant day, with many jokes and laughs along the way and just to let you all know Pouch the dog enjoyed herself as well, and yes she did spew on the way home. Well done to Scott and Billy on there Championship positions your both doing very good for your first Nationals. It's a shame Billy can only do one more local National at Southend, if he could do one a 4th one he would score more points for the series, as it is your best four out of seven that count. Thanks to all that raced and watched for all your help throughout the day and lets hope for another good one at the STCC 12 turn in 2 weeks time at WLRC, at least we know the track.

It has to be one of the best tracks in the south of England. Its a very forgiving track as it has a lot of run off space if you get it a bit wrong. We always enjoy ourselves racing there and the burgers are great. Hope you get a chance to race there soon, you are more than welcome to join the NRCCV TOE Team at any time, if anything you will have a laugh.

PostSubject: Jelly Tyres.   Mon Jun 11, 2007 3:00 pm

Well it didnt rain yesterday at WLRC but it was still a wash-out.
Scotty retired and went home early due to a broken top deck and motor brushes that kept unsoldering.
I had possibly my worst meeting for years. I was using the same set up through qualiy as I had used at previous meetings including the National were I Q. 6th in the B. But the car was so undriveable you would not belive it. It was harder to drive than racing on polished floor with knackered mini pins, we all nknow what thats like.
I ended up 6th in the B so I was determined to sort the car during the finals. I tryed 3 different set-ups for each final but none of them worked and the car was still skidding about Evil or Very Mad .
I finished 4th, 6th and 4th in the finals so picked up 5th overall. Not bad considering the handeling problems.
The only thing I can put it down to is the tyres. Speed was ballistic so didnt have to worry about that. After speaking to other drivers normally the tyres get better the more they wear but obviously not at WLRC as many were using new tyres. Looking back wish I had Sad .
Well it just goes to show it dont matter how good you are you can still have a bad day, its all experience.

PostSubject: Southend National 17-06-07   Mon Jun 18, 2007 12:07 pm

Well the rain held off all day which was a bonus for all of us. Myself, Scott and Billy were competing in the very competitive 19 turn class with many of the countries top drivers in attendance.
Southend is probally one of the hardest tracks in the country you can probally compare it to Monaco as you have to be very precise lap after lap with hardly any run off space concentration is the key to fast laps aroung this very challenging track.
Round 1 me and Scotty had good runs in the first round but Billy was having electrical trouble with his car so had a poor start to the day.
Round 2 was not much better Scotty went quicker but I cliped a corner and my motor heatsink/fan pinged off and got wedged under the car so I didnt improve and Billy was still having probs.
Round 3 and the track was now quite hot so it was time for new tyres for most. I went 13 seconds quicker, Scotty didnt improve but Billy finally got a run in but to be honest he was up aginst it as this was technically his first full race all day so struggled to get a good time.

Mark Q. 3rd C Final.
Scotty Q. 4th D Final
Billy Q. 10th D Final.

The finals werent the best ever as we all had problems one way or another. I had drive shaft pins bend in both finals which was a gutter as I was in for a trophy and good points. The new car I am driving (Red Scythe) was very good on Its first ever run, I think it should get better once I find a good set up, just wish we could work out how the top drivers gat that much speed out of there motors??? It's a puzzler as all of my gear is new batteries, motor etc. I know local track knowledge helps but I was blown away down the straight by Mark Fuller in Qualifing.

Billy was doing his Del Boy impression with a 3 wheeler car and Scotts electrical probs re-accured.
I think this will be the round that we drop as our worst score for the series. Were off to Bedworth in two weeks time for round 4 of the Nationals a new track for all of us including me as the last time I raced there was several years ago and they have changed the track layout since then so we will have to do plenty of practice on the Saturday and lots of eating and drinking in the excellent pub next to the hotel (thats the best bit about staying away for a National).

PostSubject: SCYTHE 2 THE NEW BEGINING   Tue Jun 19, 2007 3:38 pm

Yeah I must admit I have had worse results with a new car that has never turned a wheel and used it at a big meeting without driving it anywhere else.
Not a bad result though I think the Max would have probally been better because its a know quantity, but the Scythe 2 was very good considering I didnt have to touch the set up or add any parts staight out of the box, very good value for money.
Once I have had more time to do some set up testing there will be a lot more to come.
Were off to Bedworth next week on the Saturday and will be staying over night for the Sunday race day so weather permitting I'm going to try and get in as much practice on the Saturday as possible so the cars fined tuned for the Sunday. I mean bussiness this time.
I've got a few tricks up my sleeve. 1. New Mazda Speed 6 shell professonaly sprayed by P.W. 2. New Twister 2.2 speedo. 3. New Orion 4200 WC cells. 4. A couple of new motors to try.
So theres a good chance of a nice result with all the new goodies, at least I'll have peace og mind, thats a major factor.

PostSubject: BRCA 19 TURN NATIONAL BEDWORTH 01-07-07   Mon Jul 02, 2007 3:38 pm

Saturday morning arrived as did the rain. After strapping the gazeebo to the roof and loading mine and Scotty's gear into the boot we were off to Bedworth. After a couple of hours we arrived at that track (after some help with with directions from the local's, always remember to take the map, it helps) with a wet track greeting us we decided to retire to the hotel to waterproof the cars for the next day and soak up some of the local hospitality, the mixed grill was fantastic!
Bedworth's Track.



We were up bright and early on Sunday morning and the sun was out. We left the hotel at 6.45am and headed to the track.
After the early optimisam of a dry day the rain started to drizzel so it would be Pitsumizu wet tyres for practice. Not many drivers ventured out for the practice but as we had not driven the track before me and Scotty had to give it a bash. Luckily the previous afternoons waterproofing was a great success and neither of us blew anything up all day. I was using an underbody and Scotty was using a waterproof box I made him, which housed his speedo and receiver. Both did the job.

Round 1: After a very slippery practice run we both made adjustments to get more front end grip. We found that using tyre warmers was the best way to go even with the wet tyres because it gave a little more initial grip. Scotty was out first and put in a reasonable run. I also had a good first run which put me in the B, but there were a few top drivers that didn't manage a time due to the wrong tyres.
With rain constantley looming, we were all in a postion as to which tyres to go out on wets or slicks, timing would prove to be critical, with everyone becoming amature weather forecastors. This was done by timing the clouds, crude but it worked, almost.

Round 2: FTQ at this point was an incredible slow 18 lapper. Scotty went for slicks as the track had now dried out, but just as he put the car down the rain began so he only managed 10 laps, not bad on slicks. I had a wet track again but manged to put my slippery floor experience to good use and blitzed the opposition, won my race and improved, so was happy.

Round 3: By now the constant wetting and drying of the track was getting very anoying as the top heat was always getting the luck of the draw and doing faster times with slicks and a dry track, "it's not fair". Well me and Scotty both had to go out on a wet track again for our final qualifiers. We both improved Scotty on a 13 lapper and me on a quicker 15 lapper. You gussed it the top heat went even faster on another dry run.

Final leg 1: Scotty lined up 5th in the D and moved straight into 3rd at the first corner. he then picked off 2nd a pulled out a bit a lead over 3rd. Half way through the race and he hit a greasy spot just before the straight and spun off onto the grass. After a bit of luck and consistant driving he pulled back up to 2nd and secured a good first leg result.
I was 5th in the C but spun on the grid before the race even started. By the time I was put straight (thanks Jane) the race had started so fell back to 10th. Determined to have a good result I wrung the neck of my Scythe and by the end of the race I managed to pick off 6 drivers and finished 4th, so a good last leg was needed for more points.

Final leg 2: With everything crossed we watched hearts in mouths as Scotty battled to hold positions during his last leg. As the buzzer sounded he croosed the line in 4th leving us all scatching our heads as to wheather he had won a trophy??? The computer announced that car 5 had finished 2nd overall, so Scotty adds another pot to this years trophy haul, Well done and congrats on a great weekends racing.
The buzzer went and I launched off of the start line like a rocket (T-Bangs Rule) After a few nervious corners I was inot 3rd but dropped to 4th for a few laps. I then made the most of 1st-3rd swapping positions and pulled into 3rd and started to real in 1st and 2nd just when a back marker decided to take me out this mean't I finshed 4th again and 4th overal, never mind could be and has been worse. At least I got the points I wanted.

Combined results:

Scotty 2nd D Final.

Mark 4th C Final.



Overall it was a very wet, but extremly enjoyable weekend with a lot of laughs and good humour from all. This is racing at it's best and possibly the most enjoyment you will ever get within our sport. If you can get away for the weekend to race at a national dont miss the chance.

P.S. Just checked out the final times on the BRCA website. The time I did in the only dry race I had all day which was the Leg 1 (where I got wipped out by a local which cost me 4 seconds or so, and would have won that leg if not taken out) Would have put me 3rd in the A final leg 1 which was also a dry run. Happy with the Scythe YES!
