Race #5 Drummond Court Model Raceway

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.
