  • a great night of racing

    thank you to everyone that made it out last night, a solid turnout and some big fun with the novelty class cars ( rental / party cars ) thanks to Terry for putting it together

    result and pictures to follow, some new faces & 3 classes fit into one night

    a note about the schedule, we will not be running the Friday of Valentines Day weekend, the date will be announced in the future


    • Brants Hatch Jan 30, 2015 results

      We managed to run 3 classes tonight.

      The first and possibly last annual opposite hand, crash and burn, spare hand in your pocket rental car extravaganza, featuring 2 minute heats. To the victorious a bottle of cheap red wine, was the first event to hit the track.

      Peter Czerwony was the last man standing, as I don't think he deslotted once in four lanes. Quite the accomplishment as it was a weird sensation to be holding the controller in your opposite hand and not spazzing out. Some good laughs were had at the calamity.

      Up next, everyone's favourite the chaotic modified class;

      Ten racers on the line in the pre 1949 bodied, open wheeled madness.
      These cars are the second fastest class we race and almost every event features at least one car doing an aerial display like its a stunt airplane. A lot of close and frantic racing top three were on 234, 230, and 227 laps respectively after four three minute heats.

      Modified Results:

      1 Terry Dalton, 2 Vic Czerwony, 3 Peter Czerwony, 4 Jim Toye, 5 Chuck Ingram, 6 Brant Snow, 7 Todd Snow, 8 Joe Salvaterra, 9 Gord Glamna, 10, Tyler (whom was competing for the first time).

      Closing out the night were the Sports Cars, featuring GT sedans, LMP, Group C and vintage era sports cars. These are the fastest class run at Brant's and they are a lot of fun, because they are typically the best handling cars due to their low centre of mass. Top 3 lap totals were; 243, 241, and 238 respectively.

      After four lanes of three minute heats ten racers wound up like this;


      1, Terry Dalton, 2 Vic Czerwony, 3 Peter Czerwony, 4 Joe Salvaterra, 5 Jim Toye, 6 Gord Glamna, 7 Chuck Ingram, 8 Todd Snow, 9 Brant Snow, 10 Tyler ( new racer)

      Shout out to Tyler for a fine job on his debut with fast cars from the Jim Toye stable

      Thanks again to our always gracious hosts Brant and Diane.

          a big turnout ! thanks you to everyone that braved the cold weather to join us

          Sports Class :

          Peter Czerwony Victor Czerwony Jim Toye

          a fast paced race, turning the power down to 10 volts hasn't slowed the times a bit, the cars are just smoother around the track

          Modifieds :

          Terry Dalton Victor Czerwony Peter Czerwony

          what an action packed race, open wheel racing at it's finest
          Terry was able to put his beaten up ride on the top of the podium, a trip to the workshop will have it good as new

          Jim Toye finished just off the podium but not before putting down a fast lap of 2.734, these cars are crazy fast

          a fine dinner, fine friends and some great racing !

                  Nascar class : the body years will now be 1970 - 1989 ( must be a body that participated in Nascar during those years )

                  Short-Track class : the body years will now be 1949 - 1999 ( no completely open-wheeled cars, rear wheels must be partially covered )
