AUTOSPORT Drag and Wind

D&W #7, staged on 20th September proved that not withstanding the challenge, with a good concept, one can stage an exciting Event. For those who participated they thoroughly enjoyed a full day of racing, even when the rains came and tried to interrupt the fun.

Many took the opportunity to test their limits as the water and aquaplaning combined to ease the wear on tyres. Indeed most times for the day were that bit off, as track conditions slowly improved as the evening wore on. Interesting to see even the relatively new competitors also enjoying the slippery conditions, but this gave them an opportunity to gain some experience in feeling the thrill of going beyond the limit of adhesion and then collecting and correcting the direction that you ought to be aiming for.

What we again saw was the true sportsmanship by so many who continue to display such qualities even as they battle against each other for championship honours.

First there was Cecil Mooloo who shared his car with Bunny, whilst the latter effected repairs following a slight “modification” to his own Subaru at the Time Attack” event the previous week. And again as we got into running off the finals, with the last two running for a best two in three, by the third run if necessary, some degree of overheating was stepping in and a short time-out requested and easily granted by the other competitor.

And then we saw a yet another competitor, Aaron Achan registering the third consecutive perfect reaction time at ARC. And Kirk Ho Hing also going for his third consecutive Fastest-Car-Of-The–Day award.
