With the final round held this past weekend on the AstroTurf track in Navanand the usual weather playing games with the drivers you would need suncream for the Saturday and a wet suit for the Sunday :)
Qualifying was mixed for a lot of drivers . The new astro they layed in Navanhad plenty of gaps in it that randomly spun your car but also rubber ballsinstead of sand , it smelt delightfully of melting rubber !!
The man on a mission Alan Scroggie took TQ with pretty impressive runs .Andrew McClean would line up 2nd looking very controlled and starting togive the older drivers a lot to think about . Gary Baird would line up 4th andBarkley 6th .. Three of these drivers separated only by 2 points in the overallchampionship ..
So for the final it decided to empty down with standing water appearing inparts of the track the first few laps would be a case of avoiding dipping in andout of the puddles .. Scroggie never looked bag he gave himself acommanding lead by the half way pointin the 45 minute race and to be fair"machine like laps " continued right to the end where he took a veryimpressive win .Gary Baird has a glitch at the start and lost a little time,however drove a fantastic 2nd half to the race to catch Barkley and finish 2nd.. With Barkley finishing 3rd and the other two in their positions the overalltittle Goes to Gary Baird with 299 points ( he won't stop smiling ) Alanfinishes runner up again for another year on 298 and Barkley 3rd on 297....
Overall this year we have saw massive improvements with drivers , AndrewMcClean one to watch for the future . James Clarke had a really steady end tohis season . Ash Tsang looking like he's actually enjoying himself racingagain :p ..There are so many . Keep up the good work guys it's great to see somany happy drivers and even ones who play guitars and sing in the evenings!!
