Results? Read the reports and seems like it was terrible weather. Racing in the rain, and Chris Granger's electronics were damaged due to the rain, and had to sit out for Qual#5.

What happened in the mains? Any video?

2nd leg results

pro stock
Mark Musgrove - schumacher
Johnny Bowden - HB
Jay Westwood - schumacher

mod results
Andy Moore - HB
Glenn Doman - Tamiya
Olly Jefferies - AE


Andy Moore has the Mod with sewn up with 1 leg to go which is a great start for his season. 2nd and 3rd in Mod still wide open but look to be between Olly and Glenn.

In Prostock everything is still wide open. 2 winners from 2 legs

THanks Luke!!!

Wow...Andy Moore started with some bad quals, and seemed like he was heading for the bottom of the B Main. But the last 2 qual rounds he really fought thru and ends up with TQ

Now he's doing even better in the Mains!!! Seems like he figured something out...what happened? How is his car suddenly so good and everyone else seems like they've stagnated? Not to take away anything from a great driver and World Champ like Andy, but it seems like everyone else hasn't found that "switch" Andy turned on before the Mains.

Any News on Grainger and the rest of the MI4 drivers?

not sure how chris and lee (both the Mi4 drivers in the main for mod) were getting on. just that they were struggling midfield.

not sure who had the Mi4 in prostock. certainly Mark Musgrove does.

i think andy's problem was mainly track time, due to all the around the world commitments he has, Andy practises on uk tracks less than any other top driver in the UK

its good to see him up front again where he should be.

Why did laptimes for qualify rounds 4 and 5 changed from 15 secs in first 3 rounds to 19 secs?

It was raining on and off all day their. So the 15sec lap times were good laptimes in the dry and then when the track got wet the lap times went up alot. But the rain was drying up and coming down so that could of been a heat with just a damp track not nesscercelarly standing water.

As Jonny said....

Q1 was dry-ish, baring a greasy/wet track for heats 4-7
Q2 was completely dry
Q3 was also dry

Q4... rained in heat 5 (right before mine, grr)
Q5 stayed wet through out, lots of nice big puddles too!

Finals were intermitant wet dry affairs... lots of second guessing what it would be doing next today!

Regards
Ed

I'm currently uploading the eventfull 3rd Mod A-Final onto Youtube as I type this.

The only problem is the 'incidents' can't always be viewed very well from ground level.

Still, it's either than or nothing

I'll post a link once it's up.

The West London circuit has the nickname Wet London as the weather always seems to get bad for big events.

The Saturday was very windy with a few 'pop up' gazebo's being destoyed, mine was being held up with duct tape and bungee cords.
The gusts could occasionaly unsettle the cars going into corners etc.

Sunday started off with blue sky's and no wind (7:30am), by 10am we had the high winds back a lots of rain!.

The track dried out surprisingly quickly but each of finals had people leaving the choice between wet or dry tyres, or for some of us wet car or dry car till the heat before as slight rain showers kept making the track greasy, then dry then greasy again..a total nightmare, but in the UK, if you want to beat the best you have to be able to adapt!
