The season ended well for many of our clients. Ryan Marsden took his new 54c Saloon out and quickly got it to the winners circle. 40 races started. 21 victories. 4 seconds. 4 thirds and 11 others (including the odd DNF). Lowered Woodford Glens lap record on four separate occasions. The car always looked immaculate and that was recognised at the recent Woodford Glen Award night.
We would like to thank Ryan for working with us on the development of the set up for the new G6S chassis. He gave excellent feedback during the season allowing us to find a very balanced set up for the car. This culminated in more car speed which saw Ryan lower the track record 4 times! It also helped develop a good baseline for our future clients.
The long haul to Huntly was for Ryan to compare his running with the North Island cars and he was showing great speed in the first race making his way from towards the rear of the field to be challenging for the lead but unfortunately was stopped in his tracks with a car that had spun and had been left on the track. While it was disappointing not to be able to continue, he made a strong impression on the North Island drivers and showed he could certainly be competitive.
Next saloon out of the shop was the 46e of Paddy North. Paddy wanted to have a run in this car before the end of the season and the last meeting at his home track of Blenheim saw him into the car and immediately finding form with two wins from 3 races. Paddy commented on the nice balance of the car.
Another new car set to leave the workshop next week!
