  • Round 7 - boopiejones motorsport park

    the cars arrived here at BJMP. i'll be unboxing them tonight and giving all the cars a quick once over. they look very well packed, so i don't anticipate any shipping damage.

    right now the plan is to run the race in two shifts:

    race 1: tomorrow morning!!! we will have two or three guys drive all the cars. if two, each heat will be 3 minutes. if three guys, heats will be two minutes. grand total will be 6 minutes per car.

    race 2: at a later date yet to be scheduled (but within two weeks), we will have two or three different guys run another set of heats. totalling another 6 minutes

    so every car will be driven by every driver for the same amount of time. and each car will get a total of 12 minutes of track time.

    sorry we had to break it up this way, but we all have A.D.D. so trust me you really wouldn't want us doing heats longer than 3 minutes...

        Hey, you're pretty efficient mister!

        Well done Transissues, Ckouba & JscotIII. Keep an eye on your mirrors ...

          Thanks for the Q time!!

          Wet,
          Red motored cars don't come with mirrors!

          Cheers!

            Well that looks promising for a change

            Looking forward to seeing how 2 lots of drivers impacts the results. Also be interesting if temperatures etc are the same, the best balanced easiest to drive cars should still rise to the top?

              there was a low pressure system coming in from the northeast during one of your car's heats. sorry about that.

              while we are running two lots of drivers, every driver will drive every car, so that won't impact the results at all. temperature shouldn't affect things either, as the track is indoors.

                here are the results after 6 minutes of total track time. things may change slightly once we run the final 6 minutes, but so far...

                  Thanks ... 5th in practice, 4th so far halfway through. Looks jscott is comfortable in 3rd, so it's likely a battle to stay in 4th ahead of Gambler, boopie and wet who are only 6 feet apart!

                  Look forward to part II!

                    Sorry see only 2-lanes could be used. Hopefully you'll get a 3rd for part deux.
                    (Was it the outside lanes that you ran? And do you have any more pictures of the track?)

                      i qualified the cars in the middle lane. we ran the race in the two outside lanes, which is probably better for proxy racing because the cars have less chance of coming into contact with each other.

                      i thought i had some better pictures in my gallery, but i must have deleted them. i;ll try to take some pictures before the next race.

                            Good to hear. Hopefully my car will leave Johnny's in the dust - let's hear it for the left coast way of life, eh?
