  • Round 1 Westbrook Raceway Victoria BC

    So I've held off posting results as I wanted to have some pictures to go with them as we all love pictures.
    Westbrook Raceway is a new routed track with recessed steel braid, about 58ft 4 lane.
    From the start it is quick burst into a 90 right under the bridge, then a long left short straight into a 80 left under the bridge. Quick acceleration into 100 corner very short straight 90 short straight 90 onto 15ft straight into 180 banked corner to start finish.

    Dave owns the track and next to him I have the most track time on this track. We ran the 2 centre lanes(Black and Yellow) as this is what we normally do when we're "practicing". Vince did the race control.

    I used the Qualifying from the ScaleRacing Centre and decided to run the 2 Groups separately.
    For future rounds I have decided to run them mixed according to finishing order of previous Round.

    We marked on the track where cars finished in order to determine who was ahead, however I did not record sections. Letter next to best time is Lane it was set in.
