Sunday 2nd February 2020, and a new dawn for Pro Am racing, with 8 rounds and new body regs for both the 1/32nd sports and 1/24th sports, who would be the first to take the spoils?
Round one was held at Skyline raceway in Rayleigh( big thank you to Ron for hosting us).
It was very good to see David Ensor and Nick Cunningham rejoin the series, along with Brian Saunders and Steve Kearey.
First event was best presented, and that was won by Ron with his nicely painted Mack Zytek LMP 1/32nd body, which scored him 2 extra points , well done Ron.
First on track action was qualifying for the 1/32ndLMP 1& 2 class cars, and the real shock came when multiple BOC winner Josh Bryant did not get his LMP 1 car into the A final! Would he make it onto the podium? Time would tell?
Josh set about winning the B final, with a very good score that would give the A finalists something to worry about, and indeed only Richard Mack and Ron Liddell managed to beat him , making this the top 3 overall.
David Ensor took the lmp 1Am win and Colin Wilkinson the lmp 2 Am win.
Well done gents.
On to f2, and no qualifying for this, straight in and it was going yo be the case of who could stop Josh Bryant?
After his recent BOC win in f1, it seemed anything with open wheels and he was the man!
The first of the finals saw a bit of a bruising affair, with Keith Gibson coming out on top with a good drive, but in the A final not even the efforts of Richard and Ron could stop Josh taking another win( even with a badly bent car).
And so to the 1/24th sports class, and everybody chose to race in lmp1, so closed cockpit prototypes on modern chassis.
The B final proved to be more bruising than the f2 B final, with one of the funniest incidents involving Brian Saunders throwing Pete Kerr's car into the air, said car hitting the ceiling and landing back on track in a pile of paint flakes!
Neverless, Colin Wilkinson came through and won, and in doing so would win the Am catergory, but how high up the leader board would he end up?
The A final had all the days ' Superstars' in it, and on paper it should have been a straight fight between ' The home team' and Josh with Stan Alton in the mix( after a very good qualy run), but what happened was a real shock!
Yours truly had qualified 6 and did not think for on moment had a winning car under me!
But as it turned out, car was superb across all 6 lanes and ended up taking the win from Richard Mack, and Josh Bryant( both in gt12 cars).
So a good fun day was had by all, and a good start to this years series.
Many thanks again to all at Skyline, and to those that came and made the day what it was.
Next round is at Dowty, look forward to seeing you all.
