 Club racing tonight was fantastic. Lots of close racing through out the classes tonight . Great battles especially in The Dunlop Can Am going right down to the wire with at least 4 blokes in it right to the end . Lots of blokes driving really well and on the rise . Serge , Jamie , Jules, Charles really impressive. Troy and Jason also driving well so basically the club standard has improved heaps . Looking forward to seeing our guys up against the interstate drivers in July . Thanks for the track pack up . Photos with results as follows 

    

Slotworx utes Pagey 1st over Cam for 2nd with Chris for 3rd . Great racing and close just traffic making the difference. 

 

Dunlop CanAm as I said was the race of the night . Lead changes all the way through and not until the last it was settled . Toby 1st over his brother Jules and Clinton for 3rd. 

 

Super Can Am was a pressure race with fast lap times and who ever didn’t crack coming out on top . Chris with a great drive for 1st . Pagey 2nd just hanging on over Serge 3rd.

   As always a great nights racing . Good to have our Sydney brothers back Ben, Brooksy and Gregg . A couple away with cruise ships and other family duties. Still a very good roll up though. 

  First up Brooksy continues we’re he left off before his Melbourne GP duties with first place in the Slotworx Utes . Pagey in for another second with JJ a quality third . 

     Dunlop Can Am was next with sum great racing . Geoff with a moment that required a selfie beating Brooksy in the first bracket . Well done mate , well done 👍🏻Off course it was just a Speed hump for Brooksy who come in first again . His 127 laps would have won Super series by 3 laps . 👏🏻👏🏻 Next across the line was Gregg for a excellent second. Geoff with a very impressive podium visit for third . Good driving mate . 

     Super series we had a few step up this week with a few regulars away . Troy moved up with his win last week . Next in the reward position was Jules, Clinton and Jamie . Troy unfortunately had car issues so back you go next week . Oh no 🤦🏻‍♂️ Juled stays up . 😂 Very Close race right to the end of last bracket between Pagey , Chris and JJ . Pagey caught out looking at the lap counter with 2 laps to go and crash. Chris gets a well deserved win with nothing in it . 👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻🎉 Pagey hanging on for second over JJ for another podium on the night . 

    We have a practice on Sunday with guest appearance from Cody and Wayne Bramble due to drop in. Feel free for a practice from 10am for those interested. 

     Also racing will continue next week same classes. The following  week the 4th is not at the Bull Ring  due to Qld 12hr race weekend. Jim is away but I’m sure if he is back his place will be on . Keep you posted when he gets back . 

      Thanks for the support and see you next week. Cheers Pagey

   16 runners again tonight . Great nights racing as always . We were a bit slow at times with a lot of track calls . Not sure if it’s driving or car set up but hopefully we can clean it up a bit . First race we had Brooksy continuing his run of first in the Slotworx Utes. Pagey following again for second and JJ for third . 

     Dunlop Can Am Cam showed a clean pair of heels for first . Ben in for second and Troy for third . 

       Super Can Am it was Brooksy again to strong with a solid first place . Pagey managed a second again and Chris for third . 

    Next week is not on at Bull Ring as we are away in Qld for 12hr race meeting. Jim May be home but until he is off cruise not sure. That’s the end of Slotworx Utes and Can Am . Next series for the next month is 1/32 Plafit V8’s and Miniz. Looking forward to the challenge of other classes. Good luck with the new tune ups . 

      Thanks for the support of Bull Ring and see you in 2 weeks. 

 

Cheers Pagey

  18 drivers at the Bull Ring tonight. Two new classes had everyone hoping that there car set up would work. First up was our Aussie race cars . 1/32 Plafit chassis with Lexen V8 Bodies. Taking a while to getting our driving style dialed into these little buggers . Fast and fun with plenty of space for close racing. Brooksy the master of 1/32 kept up his form taking the win . Benno in a Pagey loaner for second with Pagey on the bottom step . The 12hr Enduro on the weekend for all 3 of us.So I suppose driving another slotcar  was standard for us this week . 

    Dunlop series in the MZ had controversy! Greg with a nice drive first across the line along with Vito also on the podium. However the National rules for this class has a body weight and overall weight. Drivers were told that podium cars would be tested . Greg and Vito were under weight with bodies . Greg by a massive 12g . 😳😬 So adjusted results are Troy 1st , Jamie 2nd and Big Al for what I can remember his first podium at the Bull Ring . Awesome Al ! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 

     The Super series had some rocket MZ cars on track . Chris , Brooksy , Ben and Charles were very fast . The results were very close and it looks like a class that will be interesting this month . 1st again was Brooksy with Chris 2nd just over Pagey. Looking forward to having Cam back in the mix also when he returns. 

    Ben has launched a Facebook page also for maybe broadcasting some racing at some stage. The Bull Ring is the name to search if you want a look . 

      With Anzac Day and Easter in the next couple of weeks I will post our program in a day or so when I look at a calendar. 

      Thanks for the support everyone 

 

Cheers  Pagey

   Ok looking at the calendar for the next couple of weeks and in consultation with Jim we have decided on the following. 

     Next Thursday night as per normal. The following week is Anzac Day . So racing will be on the Friday night instead . The Classes are still 1/32 V8 and MZ for the month .

 

Cheers Pagey

     16 racers tonight . A few away with the holidays and Jim crook 🤢🤮 Get better soon Jimmy. We continued the 1/32 Aussie V8 class and MZ Plafit classes. First up was the Aussie race cars . Brooks was again a cut above but when the bonnet went up he had the wrong donk 🧐😬 I don’t know if it was going to make a difference but it does have to be apples with apples . So this week again a disqualification. 😩 Pagey was next so 1st place . Benno in a Pagey loaner for 2nd and Chris for 3rd . A really nice drive by Serge also in the same car as Ben for a solid 4th place . 👏🏻👏🏻 

      Dunlop MZ was a great shoot out with Belly pushing Captain all the way to the end . Jules was fast and running strong along with Jamie sugar ant 🐜. Geoff also keeping them honest. Results ended up with Captain 👨‍✈️ 1st ,  Belly for 2nd just point 4 behind and Jules for 3rd . 

         Super MZ was a nail bitter all the way.  A four car shot out between Chris , Ben , Pagey and Brooksy going down to the wire.  Bad luck hit Ben when he was out in front , dropping in back in the pack . Brooksy suffered a jump start losing a lap as a penalty also . Results ended up with Chris 1st , Benno for 2nd and Pagey for 3rd . The laps between the four cars was nothing. Great racing and very close . 

     Just a reminder that next week is Friday night due to Anzac Day. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Easter. Thanks for the support. See you next week. 

 

Cheers Pagey

     Great nights racing last night . Unusual for us on a Friday but because of Anzac Day it was the way to go . Our numbers were down with the holidays etc . However we still had 14 runners having some really good racing . We also had our first live broadcast on Facebook. We all enjoyed the extra fun that Slotstream tv gave us at the Brisbane 12hr race . So we decided to have a go ourselves. Benno sorted the camera, my son Matthew helped with the software and microphone set up . Brooksy the new golden tonsils doing a fantastic job as commentary through out the night . Very excited with the result for a first effort . We would love to have Stephen from Slotstream come and do our telecast for the Bathurst weekend if things including his work commitments work out.  But we will continue to learn and add to our first attempt. More cameras to follow and placement to try and fit the entire track view in . Anyway back to the race report. 

     First up we had our Aussie V8 class . Some really close battles on track . Brooksy continues his winning way in the 1/32 classes. Pagey close behind and Benno for the final step on podium. 

     MZ Dunlop series was also very entertaining. Going down to the wire with Jason Bell keeping Jimmy back in second. Charles with a strong drive to round out the podium. 

     MZ super class was a very fast shoot out . Ben was a class above taking the win. The next three were very close with nothing in it all the way . Brooksy claims second over Chris and Pagey just missing out this time . Great fun .

    That ends this series of classes and next month we start with a different pace of things . A lot of fun with our touring car master cars . A break out class to add a new flavour to things . A lap time of 8.2 has been settled on , so a lost lap every time you better that time will have a few really challenged . We also have a return of one of our favourites . Slotworx Porsche cup cars . Always fast and super close racing along with great looks on track . 

     Thanks again for the support and take a look on Facebook. The Bull Ring to see the live broadcast. 

 

Cheers Pagey

  Fantastic night with 19 drivers in for a night of fun and laughs. The start of a new months classes always spices things up and especially with the first week shake downs and clearing of cobe webs.  We also had a visitor Col who found us on Facebook also. A local who raced 20 yrs ago and keen to retry his trigger finger out, welcome  Col . 

     First up we had the all in race of Touring car masters. A breakout class set at 8.2 sec lap . As normal a lower time see you penalised a lap . Sounds easier enough but the racer in you can cause pain with a breakout . 

      Old master himself Jim who is consistent and fast , just what’s required to the top step of the podium. Brooksy keeping is run of Podiums in for second and a welcome return of Captain to the last step on podium. Rod also seems to feature in this class.  It was great to see the old style cars on the track with lots of old memories flooding back with Torana’s , old Falcons, Chargers , Mustangs etc . 

    A return of our favourites the Slotworx Porsche cup cars next . Fast and fun to drive these offer fantastic racing always . 

 Dunlop series first race and it was a cracker with plenty of battles on track. Mr Slotworx himself Cam who has been busy of late finding himself in the hot action of Dunlop series coming through for the win . JJ with a great drive keeping Cam honest all the way for second . Troy was next with a quality third place . 

    Super series was going to be a close event . Everyone keen to draw first blood in the new series. The action was fast from the green light . Great racing through out the field. Pagey was back to the top after following Brooksy for the last few weeks . Brooksy in for second still with his never ending run of podium finishes . Jim rounding of a top night for himself for third . Great to have Jim back in the super series after a few runs of late in Dunlop. Just goes to show how tight the groups are with Jims first week back up getting a podium. Awesome . 

    We have continued our fun of live streaming on Facebook. Just a bit of fun for the die hard slot car tragic’s among us . We have more cameras to come on line but our computer needs a up grade to keep up with the work load . We will get it sorted soon . Anyway thanks for the support of the Bull Ring . Either in person , 19 racers wow ! Or on line , keep giving us feedback as we love to hear it . 

 

Cheers Pagey

  Wow another great roll up of drivers tonight . We had 20 drivers tonight, fantastic support with still a couple away . We continue our May series of racing starting with our touring car masters breakout class . This has been great fun so far with the results mixed up from normal. The 8.2 sec lap proving to be very challenging with plenty of breakouts occurring. Jim the master again showing how it’s done with another win this week. Consistent and don’t crash ! Thanks for the up date Jim 🧐🙄. JJ was next to cross the line . Good drive for second and was also a victim of our golden tonsils commentator for a interview. 😳 Well done Brooksy. Gregg was next and with a couple of seconds from home had a gear problem. Oh bugger , he would have been very close with for the win dropping at least two laps . Great drive mate , sack that mechanic on your car . 😂 

    Dunlop series next in the Slotworx Porsche. Rodney back in the series after a bad run last week. Plenty of speed by the Dunlop boys so not a easy task to get back to super series. Great battles followed with the umbilical brothers Troy and Jules having there normal grudge match up . JJ was fast along with Rod. Veto also showed some very fast lap times . JJ was in the end the victor with a very good drive for first . Jules for second and beats Troy 🧐😢 Rod with a solid run for third . Just shows not much between the groups with lap scores not far away from the top group . 👏🏻👏🏻

      Super series was going to be hot . Top guns have been tuning up for battle. Cam back in super series was looking very impressive along with Benno . Brooksy always fast but really anyone in the class more than capable of the win . The racing was as expected very close . Pagey giving himself a big problem from the first start on bracket one . Jumping the start and -1lap to kick off . Bloody hell ! . 🤬 Drove the wheels of the car and come in surprisingly just in front. 😮 Cam was second just behind my tail pipe . Really close stuff . Benno was third and just as close to Cam . Brooksy in for fourth , not far off but with a great run of podiums of late fourth is still great . 

   We continued our live broadcast last night . Computer is still in the design stage for up grades to improve our camera output. A bit of fun and we have had plenty of positive feed back from around the country and even overseas. More than a half dozen or so different countries with desperate racers tuning in for a laugh . Brooksy is a champ for is great commentary and when you watch it back he is doing a super job . Thanks mate . 

    Thanks again for the support and do it all again next week . 

 

Cheers Pagey
