Reedy 11 Series -Rnd 2

“Last weekend was the 2nd round of the increasingly popular 8:11 series at the NDOR Track in Nottingham. Max’d out at 127 entries it’s fast becoming a must on the Midland’s racing calendar. Team Associated took a dominant stance in qualifying with Dave Bailey taking all 3 rounds. Unfortunately Dave wasn’t able to race the finals because of family duties and a poorly daughter (get well soon Emma). Giving the rest of the field a chance to win. Boot Camper and leader of the younger recruits Matthew Lawrence had a disaster in qualifying but showed his pace by winning the C final, and the B final to make another 8:11 series A final. Well done Matthew who is fast becoming one of the ‘quick young lads’ on the racing circuit. The finals became more of a challenge when the weather turned dark and rainy. Rain had threatened all day and did drizzle from time-to-time. When the rain came down it was a lottery to know which tires and set-ups would work in the wet conditions. With a quick drying track it was a gamble to know if it would dry half way through or stay wet so it became a battle of two halves.”
