The final and fastest class was Eurosport.  This is the only class with a free choice of motor.  Racers are increasingly swapping over to brushless motors with only 5 of the 18 drivers using strap motors.      

Ross was top qualifier on 3.388 seconds followed by Lee on 3.443, Will 3.513 and Josh 3.635.

The C final was the closest race of the weekend 310.89 Pat winning from Craig on 310.87.  

David Sargent won the B final with the highest place strap car, his 341 lap total was well ahead of Barry on 324 and Richard on 324.
Lee won the A final with by far the largest winning margin of the weekend - Lee 394.25 laps,  Ross second on 362.92 and Ron third  on 348.13.  These 3 were the only cars left running at the end of the final.

Reliability in all 3 finals in this class was much worse than the two group 12 powered classes.   Both strap and brushless powered cars had problems.

Thanks again to everybody at Pinewood for a great meeting. The next round is at Rockingham on 10/11 August.

Lee’s winning chassis

Crash of the day? The car left the track and the gears got caught up in the marshal’s shirt.   

Lee’s winning car used a Horky chassis modified by Lee:  a brushless 9N6P motor, reputedly 22000KV with a Remora ecom : gears 5:39 : Speed Shop tyres and a BPA BMW body.
