Apologies to any of our members that felt Thursdays meeting got off to a slow start, we had 3 ‘new’ drivers that had to carry out their initial laps alone for experience before the other regular competitors then joined in for practice, we then had the normal race heats.
Unfortunately following a few red flag incidents we lost a fair bit of time, we appreciate this is frustrating but often it’s beyond our control. To run a successful faultless meeting each & every week is difficult & our volunteers/officials do their best & we will now capitalise on the errors & findings from last week & ensure improvements are put in place with immediate effect, we are also looking at a major upgrade on our timing/handicapping system to give a better spectacle to our crowds & a greater chance of winning for all competitors.
To have 13 race boats in a single class in today’s world of racing is something we are very proud of!
