A long awaited venue for many as it gave an opportunity for a large open track layout to be laid  by Steve and a great track it turned out to be. The weather forecast was hot and sunny and was it hot indeed it was and it was needed as the grass field was wet and slippery for the first two runs but as the grass came off the surface and the sun dried it out the grip levels came up and the run times came down…

First to set the pace in RUN 1 was Steve Brett in his modified Mini posting a time of 1:18:58 closely followed Steve Stotesbury in his 4WD Scooby and then Dan Morgan.

RUN 2..  Saw John Dutch in his modified Mini Special post a time of 1:10:64  followed by Dan Morgan on 1:13:76 and then Darren Taylor known as the King of KNIGHT0N with a time of  1:14:61

RUN 3.. The track grip was now getting much better and the times were getting closer but John Dutch liked being for the first time on the top of the leader board and decided he was going to TRY and stay there if he could so set a time of 1:06:53 , Neil Glasbey had the same idea but posted a time of 1:08:23 but he had to worry about Dave Leppard who was only a 2 tenths behind him on a 1:08:44 who was closely followed by Darren Taylor on 1:08:73

RUN 4.. John Dutch knew the chasing pack was only going to get closer as the day went on and closer they got john posted a time of 1:05:10 but Darren Taylor was getting a bit too close on a time of 1:05:69 , Neil Glasbey was not going to be left out of this chase and posted a time of 1:06:16

RUN 5..  John  knew if  he was going to hang onto first place he was going to have to GO FLAT OUT and hope not to hit any cones on the way and that’s what he did posting a new fastest time of 1:04:04 , he was chased hard by Darren Taylor who wanted to let John know he was hard on his heels and posted a time of  1:05:04 , but now Andy Williams said don’t forget me boy’s I am coming and posted a time of 1:05:54 just pushing Neil Glasbey into 4th place posting a time 1:05:59

RUN 6.. THE final chance for everyone to get there fastest time and knock John off the top of the leader board, John knew this so he threw caution to the wind and just went for it , and it was looking good in the first half of the course until  his mini decided it had enough of his right foot being on the floor and broke a drive flange, this left John wondering if he had blown it at the last minute and allowing the chasing pack to deny him his first win of 2012 and chase they did Steve Stotesbury posted a time of 1:04:28 , Andy Williams a time of 1:04:42 and Neil Glasbey a time of 1:04:67

All a bit too close for John but his RUN 5 time of 1:04:04 was enough to give him his first win of the 2012 season

Congratulations to John on a great drive and his first win
