My apologise to LeManx (not Bangers Racing) who came 3rd, I must have made a mistake on the name on the Record sheets, which I will correct for the next Round.

Thanks for running the event Wye Valley. Motor scraping along the rails...objection milud!

(And has someone got the missing rear spoiler off my Mclaren? That's why it's lacking grip Phil)

I love puttering with gears

Surprisingly your McLaren was not one the offending cars, regarding the contact with the rails.

Wavegreen Good evening,
the SCOREBOARD has been updated.

This round did raise a couple of magnetic traction issues regarding the cars with low slung motors touching the track rails, so we are working with the entrants with a view to correct these. Our host is willing to try and raise the motors inside the motor mounts for the Toyota Supra & Marcos LM600 which appeared to cause most concern.

Wavegreen Good Morning,
Many thanks to the Wye Valley Slot Car Club for running the 2nd Round, it certainly gave us some interesting results. So well done to them, next week we look at sending the cars onto the next host on Mountain View's home based Policar Track.

Round 2
Pitlane Review
As expected the different track and format used gave us some new Podium results. There was however some unexpected issues with track clearance of two of the cars, one of which is running under concession (but with time penalties) the other was deemed as (just about) legal when the scrutineering was carried out. 
It is of great concern that the motors bottoming out on the track contact rails could cause damage to controllers etc, so action is necessary to try to rectify the situation.
I have asked Phil at Wye Valley in agreement with the entrants to look at these cars to see if the motor position within the motor mounts can be adjusted to raise the motor level with the motor mount. If so and additionally if they then pass the track clearance requirements they could avoid additional penalty allocations. 

Overall Results after Round 2

Sports Cars (Group 5)
Joint 1st Place - Le Manx /BMW M1 & Bangers Racing/ Ferrari 512BB (35 pts)
3rd Place - Savage GT/ BMW M1 (17 pts)
An early battle for position is beginning to emerge in this Event, shortly to be joined by Brumos RSR who's DNF on the last Round had deprived them of any points, but already now making 4th Place.

InterSeries
1st Place - LeManx / Porsche 917k (35pts)
2nd Place - RoadRunners / Ford GT40 (28pts)
3rd Place - ALS Racing /Ferrari 412P (26pts)
An even closer battle emerging here, BARacers Porsche not quite working so well on this track but still very much in contention. Absolutely delighted with the Ford GT40 getting top spot, I will relish the moment  Sun

Global GT
1st Place - Harrison's Racers / Toyota Supra (35pts)
2nd Place - ModSports / Ferrari 550 (28pts)
3rd Place - Bangers Racing / Honda NSX ( 23pts)
Similarly fireworks are emerging between the leading cars in this event, Harrisons's Racers Toyota taking leading position over ModSports Ferrari 550 and Bangers Racing's Honda NSX emerging as the 3rd place contender with 23pts. Ruscillo Racing's Merc CLK losing out on this round.

British GT Championship
Joint 1st Place - Green Star Racing /Porsche 911 & Brumos RSR/ Ferrari 458 (35pts)
3rd Place - Courtney Sport / AMG (22pts)
Top two cars locked in battle for 1st place. Courtney Sport's AMG struggling to keep up at the moment but still early days.

Class A Constructed Cars
1st Place - ModSport /Aston Martin DB9 (31pts)
2nd Place - Ruscillo Racing/ Merc CLK (30pts)
3rd Place - Savage GT / AMV (22pts)
oh so very close at the top, with Savage GT / AMV finding  a new momentum after the previous Round

Class B Constructed Cars 
1st Place - Harrisons Racers / Toyota Supra (31pts)
2nd Place - ModSports / Ferrari 550 (28pts)
3rd Place - Courtney Sport / AMG (26pts)
An exchange of positions as ModSports Ferrari struggled abit on this track.

Class C Constructed Cars
1st Place - Green Star Racing / Porsche 911 (35pts)
2nd Place - Brumos RSR / Ferrari 458 (26pts)
3rd Place - LeManx BMW M1 (20pts)
The Event 4 cars certainly enjoyed this 2nd Round.

Teams
1st Place - ModSports (101pts)
2nd Place - LeManx (100pts)
3rd Place - Bangers Racing (94pts)
Looking like Bangers Racing is catching up fast with the top teams.

Fastest Lap
