Auto World NHRA Top Fuel Match Racing - Round One

Noah and Dylan were back for another round of their long-running Top Fuel showdown...

   

Not as close a battle as last summer, Dylan's Alanabi dragster seems to have the upper hand over the winter. He won the first run by 0.213 seconds - a 1.035 to a 1.243 for Noah's Optima machine. Let's see if Noah's crew can find some more horsepower overnight.

   

Clive and Alan were both losers back in November - they gave us an exciting first run, with Clive's white Matco Top Fueler beating the Al's Garage dragster to the line by a mere 0.021 seconds. The ETs were 0.735 and 0.748, Alan finishing very strongly at 7.284 mph.

   

The final match in round one was between Rebecca and Andy. After a close start, Andy's FRAM machine stretched it's legs to win by 0.079 seconds - 0.723 to 0.802.

Round two will start the action tomorrow.

Next up we have Micro Scalextric Super Stock Qualifying - followed by the eliminators around 8pm.

Micro Scalextric Super Stock 6.0 Eliminators - Round One

   

Top qualifier Rebecca dispatched Andy Phillips' amazing Mini in the first race - the ETs 0.475 to 0.749 for a winning margin of 0.295 seconds.

The second race between sixth and seventh qualifiers would be closer...

   

Dave's yellow stocker led from start to finish, crossing the line 0.027 ahead of Andy's Nissan - Dave dipping below half a second at 0.497 to Andy's 0.530.

Dropping down to the second half of the ladder, second qualifier Alan met second-to-last Clive...

   

Clive's Nissan had much more pace, but Alan was through 0.063 seconds quicker - 0.483 to 0.541.

   

It looked like Bill was going to cause a small upset in the fourth race - but Jeremy's Nissan powered through the line to win by 0.019 seconds. The ETs were 0.513 and 0.533.

   

Iain's Nissan beat Al's Ford by 0.057 - 0.516 to 0.555.

   

And Hank got past Jane with a fast finish to win by 0.045 seconds - 0.500 to 0.546.
