We hope everyone that attended round one of the nitro nationals had a great time, if you did make it you would have seen Nemo out in full force! We probably had the largest support areas on the field, not by intention but just wanting to give all our drivers, customers and friends a little extra cover from the unfortunate weather we’d been anticipating. We were following the forecasts closely and unfortunately the Saturday was one of the heaviest rainfalls we’ve seen in a long time.
We had some great results in qualifying and were really excited to see our Darren back in action with his nitro buggy. Unfortunately a drive shaft failure due to some early bumps on the track meant that he was out of the running for a podium spot, but that didn’t stop him repairing so that he could enjoy the drive till the end of the final, having the second fastest lap time overall. We also had Callum and Joni in the running, however they ended in 9th and 11th respectively, Jon Hazlewood unfortunately just missed a spot in the main final by one place.
Despite the weather that everyone struggled against; the club somehow managed to put on a great meeting and provided everyone with a carefully maintained track and a great catering service (cheers Jimbo and Jules!).
We’ll see everyone at the next round of the nitro nationals which will be held at northwest nitro club in Blackpool, see you all there!
Thanks from all at the Nemo team, and as ever, race for fun!
