Firstly on behalf of the Nene can I say a big thank you to all those who travelled and supported our 2nd round of our 2020 summer series and to our members who attended the work party on Wednesday evening.
It was good to see new faces, some returning racers from the old Nene’s and to racers who we have not seen at the Nene for over 10 months due to the pandemic.
For those who attended the meeting, and if we had your correct email address then you will have been receiving emails from our timing computer with your results through out the race day, and what a race day ot was.
We had a great mix of 1:5th and 1:8th racers on site and able to run some great finals, unfortunately due to the inclement English weather the track and a few marshals got a bit damp thanks to a short sharp shower which caused the 1/8th semi final be be “paused” at 5 minutes 41 seconds of there 15 minute semi.
30 minutes later in not so greying skys it was restarted and the rest of the finals executed with some close racing witnessed which mirrored some of the earlier qualification sessions. Despite this damp shower the main finals were run under blue skyes.
The results for the weekend are available here for 1/8th combined, 2wd & 4 wd 1:5 buggy and 1:5 short course.
I look forward to redoing it all in a couple weeks for our 3rd Summer series meeting on the 5/6th September (registration available here).
