HO Drag Proxy 17-18 November RACE REPORT
#1

   

The opening race of the Winter Series has been delayed slightly - put it down to Covid-chaos - but that does mean we'll have quite a few cars on the start line that wouldn't have made it otherwise. The final transporter - from Jeff in Texas - is due to roll in any minute now.

The updated schedule (which may still change!) is something like this...

Wednesday 18 November: NHRA 4-Gear qualifying and eliminators.
Thursday 19 November: Best-in-show, Match-Racing Round 1, Micro Scalextric Super Stock qualifying and eliminators.
Friday 20 November: Match-Racing Round 2 & 3, Micro Scalextric Street Stock qualifying and eliminators.

Race coverage will be start here around 5-5.30pm each evening.

Update: No action tonight, but we are ready to roll in the morning. Expect news and racing throughout Thursday afternoon and evening. What we don’t get done tomorrow will roll over to Friday - probably Street Stock.

And Jeff’s cars did arrive this afternoon! Thanks to Clive for getting them on the road from Norfolk so quickly  Thumbup

Apologies - we seem to have entered some sort of time warp this week... The calendar says it's Thursday and the HO Drag Racing should have finished by now - but it hasn't even started!

At the moment, I'm seeing that as a bonus - the fun is still ahead of us.

In the meantime, no action tonight... but tune in tomorrow - you should be pleasantly surprised.

It's just a jump to the left

And then a step to the right

Let's do the time warp again.

Or not...

Blimey - apologies again - it has been one of those weeks. Everything was planned nicely to have lots of spare time for racing the drag cars. Alas, the best-laid plans...

After a supermarket delivery between 7 & 8am (no-one else seems to grab that slot...), the weekend is looking promising.

Well it is winter so we have to wait until the organizers declare the track ice free and safe for racing[Image: cool.gif][Image: sun.gif]

Hey ho, back to eBay for another evening's online entertainment.

I hope you are well insured Woodgate.... there's an expensive claim for delay coming your way!

I love puttering with gears

Let's introduce all the cars for the main three classes!

Andy Phillips' Super Stock Mini has had a fabulous makeover, while Bill has added a Super Stock to his Street Stock car from the Summer Series...

       

Jeremy and Jane have two cars each this time. Excellent soldering on the Super Stock 6.0 cars Thumbup

       

Iain's trio are stunning - lovely work on the Nissan S/S 6.0, plus we have Jerome back with his Street Stock Veyron and (shared) Funny Car...

       

The Burley Audi TTs return from Worthing in the capable hands of Pete and Sue - and Jeff has sent a Street Stock Audi R8 all the way from Texas!

       

Next up, we have two of the big guns from the summer - Clive is back and Rebecca is ready for the winter...

       

Laura's DBR9 was first off the transporter from the West Country, closely followed by Alan's contenders...

       

Andy Pl has thrown together three dubious has-beens, whereas Hank looks all set with his Street Stock and S/S 6.0 cars from the States...

       

More cars from across the pond are Al's and Dave's...

       

Finally, we have the cars from Chesterfield: Dave and Doug with Street Stock and NHRA 4-Gears...

       

Noah and Dylan are back with their Ford Focus WRCs  - and a couple of neat 2019 Micro Scalextric cars to match race...

       

There are also six NHRA Top Fuelers and a couple of Aurora Dragsters which we'll see match-racing.
