Elmbridge Circuit 20220918
Round 4 of the MPBA 2022 Circuit Championship was held as usual at Elmbridge Model Boat Club. This was day 2 of the 2 day Charity Event and the last Circuit race of the 2022 season.
We enjoyed good weather yet again, cloudy chilly start but it did warm up a bit later. Due to no entries in the 3.5 hydro class we had a forshortened race card,.This was cut again when someone managed to right off 2 boats on the same buoy, thus eliminating the 15 hydro class, there only being 2 boats entered.
The 7.5 offshore class enjoyed some good close racing and was one of the highlight races of the day. The open offshore class continues to be the dominant class with 9 entries. With so many boats & with the speed of these, driving needs to be improved. When racing it is imperative that lines are held. I would suggest that all take time to review the race rules both MPBA & IMBRA, as one refers to the other.
Let’s all hope that next year we all enjoy better reliability have our boats sorted properly & have fuller heats.
Again, it is thanks to the Elbridge guys for manning the catering side of things. Brilliant job yet again
The unadopted minutes from the AGM held on Sunday have been sent out in a separate email. Please have a read & if you have any queries or additions let me know.
That’s all for now, hope you all enjoyed the racing this year & looking forward to next year.
Regards to all.
A final word
I wasn’t able to attend the second day, so thanks again to Grahame for the write up.
