Done some checking and the fast guy was Dean Osbon, it seems he has a heap of top 10 results in BRCA Mod's and some 19turn and stock. No wonder he was fast

What was Dean doing up there???

He is normally resident at Snetterton and normally doesnt travel too far for races, Midlands furthest north I have seen him.

But you are right, a very quick driver. We breeds em fast down south you know.

What 19T motor you runnig Herm, PM me I may be able to build you something a little quicker, a bit of a Demon in fact if you get my drift!!!

Maybe he was on holiday or something, there were quite a few that traveled up the day before, a few caravansm lucky them, with their own toilets everyone else had a bit of a walk.
It is the biggest event we get in Scotland usually, over 70 drivers with not that many beginners, mostly the bottom 15 in 19Turn.

I run a Matrix 19turn, it certainly seems fast and isn't a pain to keep maintained. I think the Barracuda is helping it seem so fast though, I don't know how the Cuda does it but boy is it fast, makes all but the best maintained cars by other manufacturers seem like they're running a slower class of motor. As you've seen for yourself and said in the other thread

a 15 hour day but I made it

Well the track certainly was big, I ended up using 70/34 giving me 5.0x and the motor still wasn't getting overly hot
Took until the 3rd run to get anywhere decent, quite a few people were suffering from interference, caused by a huge rial bridge overhead, made of Iron I think, and I mean HUGE the occasional train going along it seemed to cause a few of the problems. I ended up moving my reciever to the top deck, tie wrapped so it was on it's side with the crystal at the top, and I also needed to stand nearer one end of the rostrum, the finals were mostly glitch free.
I qualified 6th, which wasn't bad after a day of strugling. With three legs for the A final I was strugling for cells and have definetly abused my good packs luckily indoors won't be too demanding on them and next outdoor season it will be time for new ones.
First final I did ok as others were a little erratic, I finished 3rd and was pleased.
Second final I was fast but made a few mistakes, a couple due to interference and with a slow marshal I ended up 7th.
Last final was by far my best, I got a good start and got up to 3rd, and followed 2nd place closely for about 6 laps, with 4th right behind me after he had a dodgy first lap or two. Then the guy ahead of me, who'd been holding me up slightly made a mistake in a corner and lost all his speed so I got along side into a twisty section, he didn't give me any room as he tried to recover and I was trying to carry a lot of speed in a difficult section. We collided and I said sorry, we didn't loose too much time as the guy behind me just got through and so we set off again and I made sure he was ahead. But he was fuming at me, he then made several mistakes all on his own and lost a hell of a lot more time than I cost him, yet he still blames me for his not keeping his position and therefore a better overall result. It was quite obvious he was holding us up and he would never had held onto the place by the end of 5mins, the guy who was behind me at the time was who he was worried about as he was going for the same 2nd overall.
With two 3rd's I ended up 4th overall, not bad for not too far off 40 drivers in 19T.

We all got pasted by one guy in 19T though, I have been told he is a B team Schumacher driver and had a hand in designing the car, his car was dialed all day, not sliding a bit and his motor was blisteringly fast, no one else had a chance, and at times he was a second a lap faster than everyone else, he would average in the 18seconds and the next closest was mid 19's average, and the others aren't exactly slow

another long post by me
Congrast Hermi'

Wait till you try the 12T that I"m going to send you ahahahaha

PS can you say that you"ll need a PAL Drive System now...
