Mid-West Regional 4WD round 2:  Telford Model Car Club

Laura Yardy

27th May 2018

 

Telford Model Car Club hosted the second round of the 4WD series. The forecast talked of all weather, ranging from sun to rain to thunder storms. With the forecast putting some drivers off we dropped to 7 heats, with 69 drivers competing.

 

 

Qualifying

The day started wet, with intermittent showers. This track coped with the rain fairly well, with only a couple of patches of standing water.

The majority of drivers opted to run Ballistic Buggy greens throughout the first few rounds of qualifying. The weather improved, and the temperature came up, drying out the track. The tyre choice was switched to Schumacher yellow Darts.

 

 

Individual round scores were as follows.
