Managed to get 5 bikes for the 29t April, Neal, Ross, LUKE, Martin and myself.

Turned out to be a very cold day but the rain stayed away.

We ran 5min qualifying and Finals as is the norm for Club Days, do to initial setup problems with the Clubs race software we only managed 3 qualifying and 2 finals. The morning was open practice, but most decided to stay warm and visit AV8 for breakfast.

Martin ran his 1/8th Bike for one of the rounds and it surprised a few of us with its speed and agility; Martin also claimed the lap record for an 1/8th Bike.

I didnít realise initially but other than Martin, the rest of us were running ZH bikes of various specs, Martin eventually running a Jabber.

Because of the uncertainty of a non-biker starting the finals we all agreed to start from the barrier below the rostrum which worked surprisingly well. I for one would use that in subsequent visits.

Next date to be confirmed in the near future, hopefully weather will be warmer and a few more may make the trip.

Yes it was a cold but enjoyable meeting. The 1/8th HK370 ran well essentially out of the box, the rear wheel gyro is mild compared to some others and still gives good steering response. If we get a few more we could run as separate class maybe ?

Looking forward to the next club round, should be warmer !
