August Bank Holiday Open

2013.08.26 BH Monday Open Results

I’m sure we were all apprehensive about what to expect after the torrential rain two days before the Meeting. We need not have worried as Braxted delivered as usual. There was no water-logging of the field or track and the grass had greened up nicely. A good attendance and a variety of classes, combined with very warm and sunny weather all day, provided the perfect recipe for a good meeting. The track design was clockwise running, with several ‘technical’ sections, and all features utilised.

2013.08.26 The Track

Four Rounds of six heats were run, plus Finals, and contrary to what might have been expected a significant number of drivers improved their times as the day went on – proves that our FTQ system of Qualifying does work!

A friendly atmosphere, and smiles all round, indicated that everyone was enjoying themselves. It just happened to be Lee Hedges’ birthday and he celebrated with FTQ & Final wins in 3 classes! He also provided birthday cake (delicious – thanks, Lee!) for anyone who wanted it! All-in-all, a great day.
