Report from Paul McPeake -
Contrary to the weather forecasts, Albemarle had a nice sunny day with only light winds. Sadly only four teams turned up to fly.
Race one had McPeake/Robinson run-in on take off, while Walker/Peart had a slow start, retiring after their first pit stop. Langworth/ Broadhead had completed 56 laps when Walker/Peart retired and carried on to finish in 3.23.8.
Race two saw Hill/Metcalfe flying again after almost a year off, and was uneventful except for Walker/Peart recording a personal best.
In the fourth race, McPeake/Robinson finally recorded a time after John Broadhead spotted that the wheel of the McPeake/Robinson model was sticking, thus causing their retirement in two races.
The last race of the day was also the fastest for Langworth/Broadhead with 3.19.7 but only in a two up with Walker/Peart who overshot on landing and rolled into the circle.
Unfortunately the day was spoiled by a shortage of timekeepers and some stopwatch malfunctions. Thanks to Dave Holmes for acting as CD.
