Yesterday was a great day of racing....

It was pretty hot and incredibly windy, the new track layout seemed to be very well received, I found it really challenging and enjoyable with high average speeds. The lap times were close to breaking into the 16 sec barrier which is pretty good for such a long track.

The top speed test was great, the Two electrics took the honours, both amazingly setting the exact same speed of a nudge over 90 kph.

The fastest Nitro was off the pace at 77kph but this was because we weren't initially using enough runup, it was definitley still accelerating through the trap.

Just to prove the wind is an issue, even that low, speed were down almost 10 kph running into the wind.

November will see the next speed test, I'm hoping that people see it's worth and we have a few more people giving it a go.

Look out for the 18 cvr powered GT1 HPI Super Nitro, it will be looking to join the electric guys at 90 kph club, but can anyone break 100 kph?

A reminder too that the next round, clashing with Bathurst, will not be held due to commitments to "The Big Race"

See you all next race meet.
