Fastrax Summer Series – Rd5


CML reports – “Iain McCallum reports back from the penultimate round of the Fastrax Summer Series at the home of Stoke Nitro Car Club. A big thanks to John Clay of ‘Clays Corner’ for writing the last report as I was sunning myself in Spain ( I did think of coming home early, but only for a millisecond ). No truggy pro meeting on this time so I am pleased to report a very good turnout in this class, and the meeting in general with some fast drivers coming to join the fun. Buggy Class – Early pace setters in buggy on the bone dry track where Mark Redmond, Ian Boushear and Mick Butler, all posting decent eight lap first round times along with Darren Wood and Andy Friar. Mark was top of the pile a good twenty seconds ahead of the field. A time so good that no one including Mark would beat it for the rest of the day. Round 2 saw improvement to Mick’s time but not his position with Darren taking third spot from Ian with an impressive looking RC8B. Round 3 saw everyone chasing Mark’s time but, as stated, no one could catch him, leaving the top four unchanged. Jamie Brown dropped in a belting third run to take fifth on the grid from Andy Friar.”
