News Presto Park Round 1 Race 5 Saloons

Thanks to Mike for doing the last two reports as having moved home and had to wait for a internet fault to be sorted, but now back with you all.

Last night was race 5 and we all had our saloon cars out for some good racing.

With 16 drivers attending and cars varying from Calibra's tp Pogo's with a couple of Audi's  and Honda's thrown in for good measure, Also had a MG6 during the practice time which never made the start line.

The heats got underway and as expected we had some very close racing and as we stated back at the beginning of the year now going in a clockwise direction we seem to be having fewer de-slots and less accidents every one is still learning the new braking points etc., but lap times are now falling slowly.

It was unfortunate that Iain M left us early due to illness. Hope your feeling better Iain and will be with us next week.

After the heats had finished we got ready for the evening finals as follows.

Final E

On the grid we had 3 drivers, Keith, Gordon, and Tone.
A good start at the second attempt and all raced away with Gordon taking the lead and putting a larger gap between himself and the other drivers lap on lap. Keith had his best race of the night after having 3 cars break on him during the heats and Tone having one of his worst nights for many months.
After the 25 laps the result was:-

1. Gordon
2. Keith
3. Tone

Final D

Gordon took his place on the start line along side Viv, Ray, and Alf.

The lights went out and the grid raced away and for a couple of laps stayed close, but soon began to spread out as each driver tackled their own issues.

After the 25 laps of places being swapped between all drivers the result was:-

1. Alf
2. Gordon
4. Viv

Final C

Alf took his promotion place on the grid along side Lyle and James H ( who are usually A final contestants)and Ian R.

The lights went out and again all cars raced away very close to each other before each driver settled down to their own pace to complete the final.

It was very close between James H and Lyle all the way through and both kept swapping the fastest lap times which came form this final

So after 25 laps the results was :-

1. James H
2. Lyle
3. Ian R
4. Alf

Final B

James H took his place along side Mike, Richard T, and Steve.

After the lights went out all four cars stayed within a cars length of each other for the first 3 laps, before gaps started to extend, again swapping race positions was the name of the game with a few Harvey kisses and even some Steve swipes on the bends couldn't stop James H finally finding his form for the evening.

The end of the race came to early for a couple of drivers but after the 25 laps the result was :-

1. James H
2. Mike.
3. Steve
4. Richard T

Final A

After a double win James H took his place on the grid alongside the Titans of saloons Ken, Alan and Andy.

The lights went out and a very quick get away for all cars saw them stay close for the first 4 laps and along with a few maneuver's that didn't come off the gaps started to appear.

Alan tried so hard to keep pace with the others, but just couldn't stay with them and started to drop back, Andy took the lead and raced hard to stay there with James H and Ken trying hard to keep with Andy .

After the 25 laps the final result of the night was as follows :-

1. Andy
2. James H
3. Ken
4. Alan

The final results for championship points are :-

Andy                  25

James H            23

Ken                   21

Alan                  20
