A good day’s racing and very enjoyable. Star drivers Kevin and Robert were absent with flu like symptoms so it was open season for the seven who showed up. Ken showed up wearing Oilers jersey and cap which earned him immediate disqualification from the event but on appeal was allowed to race.
Great fun with the monster classic overweight, top heavy, skinny tire American saloon cars built and provided by Henning. Potential safety threat at the end of the straight where like most American cars of that era suffered from brake fade and executed superb roll overs. With only a few millimetres between the wide bodied cars John nearly lost his fingers whilst marshalling the centre lane which was a close call for all involved.
Great days racing and Ken showed off his skating skills when he spun his Group C wide at turn 1 but kept it in the slot grinding away at near right angles to the track for several agonizing seconds as the marshal waited patiently for traction or de-slot. The Oilers fan held steady and the car proceeded as normal which earned him the driver of the day award.

Thanks Lez for hosting Race #4. Looks like Rob’s lucky Rocky Mountain Racers shirt did the trick helping him win the Canalami Winston Cup Trophy in enemy territory by a slim 1 point margin. Not sure if the lucky RMR shirt will ever come off for another meet hey!? Leo’s Scalextric Ferrari 330 running Slot.it like times was amazing, setting a new standard and record times I’m sure…..very amazing! See you all next week! … More Race #4 Canalami Raceway
