Yesterday we started the outdoor season here in DK.
The first race was at, perhaps, the largest track we have here in DK, the track in Neastved, for those of you who might know it.
with a lengt of about 240 to 250 meters it not all that fun to race with at Stock-motor, but we had are prety tight race, behind the winner..
His avg. laptime was most of the day, a few 1/10s faster then my fastest laptime....
My preperation for this race hadn't been all that great.
Havent been out racing or pratecing for 3 weeks, then 4 batts pratice friday an then the race yesterday.
But I had a faily day. My brOOd powered Stinger
took the 4. place in the Q.
4 drivers were within a secound, including me...
The race was wery tight. The winner, just went of after 2 or 3 laps, and then the rest of us battled it out.
I was a bit unlucky in the two first finels, been hit from the behind during the first laps, putting me down the line.
was realy fast in the first 3 to 4 min. then loosing a little speed for the last minute or so.
I didn't manege to find the right set-up either so I was driving rather safe in the to firts finals. The car had a tendensy to slide af I was just a bit too agresive.
For the final round I made a few changes to both the front and the rear. Had to try something...
Was aiming for some more steering but also slightly more tracktion to the rear.
I got the last...
Was ecspectating a understeer in the first coorner af the start, but in steed it just turned in - to my surprise.
I went inside the coorner, over the gras, and out on the track again, hitting someone already "parked" the wrong way. This mess put me down on 6. place in the 8 man large final. I got back up, but after 2 or 3 laps the car started to understeer. From there it was realy hard to overtake. belive I ended 5.
Totaly it gave me the 6. place overall. An OK result but I'm not Very happy about it. Looking forward to some more time finding a better setup for the car.
Do you have any ideas plece send them my way.
I found one great thing on the Stinger.
On asphalt its a great starter!!!
Together with my great Team brOOd motors and batteries, KO VFS-1 Alex Racing ESC, it gave me some great starts, being alongside nr. 3 half way down the starting straigt.
Unfortunatly the car and I was not able to do the rest.
But I'm looking forward to a hopefully great summer, with a lot of great racing.
Se you on the tracks
