The photos are now back up!
I paid for a pro account for one year, and once the immediate high number of views passes the photos will remain viewable when the account reverts to free in 12 months.
Thanks for all your positive comments! They make the reporting feel worthwhile.
Sosidge: the standard was a varied but the timesheets tell a story: On the first day I was surprised how varied the standards were, but split high proportion very good, small number average. Eg there was a 28sec best lap on Thursday. But by sunday there were no gaps larger than 3ish secs within a heat. Goes to show what a long way practice on a track goes.
Aside of the odd few who needed the practice time the standard was very good indeed. As an example one of the drivers (Hi Cue Ball
) was a former Tamiya World Champion, and many others national open (ie non Tamiya series) champions. It was a great place to sharpen up your skills by learning off others.
Cham (above) - what a super guy. We met Cham at the door on the first morning lining up and heseemed to be the lone guy driving from Geneva to race. He quietly went on to second place in the GT (mod) class!!
Consistent, fast and able to drive with a camera dangling of his glasses, that's pretty cool. Our 2 HU mod drivers are hawking over your vids now looking for their cars in the frame
. Thanks for posting up the vids. If you'd said you were doing the blog you could have used my laptop anytime.
