After a quick tour of the track and a safety briefing we donned our race gear and the first group headed off to the karts.

 

Group 1

Wayne

Joe

Ryan W.

Elias

Ryan C

Steve [the old one]

 

After the bragging by Steve that nobody would beat him Joe went out and set the fastest time and won the first race. The first group did very well with only a couple of spins both by Ryan C who ACCUSED Steve of cutting him up [never it’s a lie].

    Sami

    Luke

    Danny

    David

    Liam

    Bobbie   

 

David set the pace in the first session with Sami and Bobbie   threatening to do a rolling roadblock but the boys were too fast   for them.

 

The second session of Group 1 went very well with Joe again setting the pace and Wayne keeping Steve at bay until 2 spins near the end saw Steve and then Elias fly past, the other big spinner was Ryan C. 

 

Group 2 minus Bobbie and Liam [the brake burner] plus Wayne and Ryan C [coin toss, it was fair Joe] started off at a cracking pace with David at the front being pushed hard by Luke and Danny. Towards the end most drivers had a spin due to tiredness.

 

Back to the changing area and Lee [owner] presented trophies to Joe for the overall fastest time of the day and for winning Group 1, Ryan W won the trophy for most improved driver of Group 1.

 

Group 2 was won by David with Sami getting the most improved driver [18 seconds].

 

The journey back to DLC was full of the talk of the fun and spills of the day and Joe reminding everybody that he beat Steve.
