PostSubject: KO GP 25TH-27TH AUGUST 2007.   Tue Aug 28, 2007 1:57 pm

What a brilliant weekend! This belive it or not was the first time I entered the KO GP and I'm glad I did. What a friendly but very competitive race meeting, not as stessfull racing wise as a National but with more competition than any other meeting held anywhere in the country.
Early on in the year I was asked to run a shop at the KO GP by Steve Cann of WLRC (many thanks) which I thought would be easy, was I wrong, so much to do and remember, very stessfull. Before I go any further I woul Like to thank everyone who helped out, the obvious ones first:

My long R/C suffering wife and Daughter.
Richard (the pit dude) Powell for putting my car on the track all weekend.
Jane and Scott of B.T.Q. Models (ha,ha)

Saturday practice:

Once the shop was set up I had 2 practice runs 1st with a spool then a 1 way, I opted tor un the one way for the weekend as it gave a little more steering than the spool and it dont chew drive shafts up either. Scotty had 2 runs wich ended up with a blown new Dynasty laydown (not very reliable these, he wernt the only one to do this).

Sunday Qualiy:

After un-packing the shop again we went into Qualiy to cut it short I ended up 28th, so *th in the C and Scotty was 6th in the H. Just wish I had more time to work on the car, but running the shop was a major thing at this meeting, somethings got to give. * seconds out of the A wernt bad all things considered.

Monday Final Showdown:

Scotty had an excellent result and won the first leg, he then came 2nd in leg 2 and after leg 3 he finished 2nd overall. Well done M8.

I had mixed results and was bashed from corner to corner in legs 1 and 2, resulting in 5th and 8th. Leg 3, well all I can say is if you have a Check Point Money Motor, take note of the timing lugs, it is possible to put the end-bell on the wrong way around, which means the cars goes backwards. Oh the stress of it all.

An excellent meeting and one I will definatley try to get to next year. Met some old friends and made some new ones to. Well done WLRC ***** event. Thanks againg to all who helped out me and F.T.Q. Models.
