Golspie: a view from the pits

Posted in Sprints, Trackside View, Uncategorized on June 16, 2009 by Stephen Hynds

As Paul said previously – it’s quite the journey to Golspie, especially if you go via Aberdeen. The trip north via GWR on Friday was well worth it though. I was a bit lax in my responsibilities to take photos of everything but I was too busy taking in all the nuggets of information that Graeme was dispensing. The fact the car got a clean bill of health is testament to all the work put in over the winter and since the start of the season.

The rest of the journey up was pretty relaxed with us convoying up from Aberdeen with Matty. It helps that the scenery in that part of the world is so nice.

The racing weekend itself was great fun, despite what the weather threw at us on Saturday afternoon. It was nice to see the fireblade out in the hands of Paul’s brother Russell. It’s still an awesome sounding car. 900 and odd ccs of opera singer.

IMG_6407

It’s still shy on power obviously but Russell looked like he was having plenty of fun.

Saturday started dry and Paul was straight in to the thick of things and it looked good for a decent attempt at the record in the afternoon.

The commentator at Golspie, who was initially (but not laterally) an amusing addition to the proceedings, was very interested by Paul’s car. I’m not sure if I could reprint his description of the car’s colour on a child friendly website. He was soon eating his words though when the times came up.

Unfortunately when lunchtime came the weather closed in on the circuit much to everyone’s chagrin. The track was well rubbered in by that point and the addition of the rain left it extremely slippy.

IMG_6759

A class victory is always good but the car is chasing class records too so it was tinged with disappointment.

Saturday night was spent at the clubhouse of the local golf club where we were very well fed and watered for much cheapness. My penchant for sticky toffee pudding had clealry preceeded me as the slice I was served could have fed an army.

Sunday morning soon arrived and the threat of rain was ever present. Paul’s first time surprised just about everyone, not least himself. Surely, to paraphrase Yazz, the only way was up?

Golspie Sprint 7th June 2009

As Paul said on his post Matty had a pretty big off on the second practice run. I was only standing about 10 yards from where it happened but I was waiting with the video camera to catch Paul’s run and so never caught any of the incident on camera.

Once the dust had settled and the tyres were back in place I did my best to avoid being Mr Shaky Cam who seems to film everything on youtube. I’m quite pleased with the results:

After a lovely BBQd lunch we set about the business of the timed runs. Paul put in a solid, but not earth shattering first run as the skies dulled and rain could be seen in the distance. It looked good for a class win at that point unless anyone could really up the pace.

The rain never arrived but the last timed run saw Paul fighting with his tyres and colder weather. This was a big moment out of the beach corner that put the nail in the coffin of a record attempt.

Golspie Sprint 7th June 2009

We’d prepared the tow car and the trailer for a sharp exit so after the final run the bogey was immediately tucked away for the journey home. It’s not quite as smooth as KITT driving into the F.L.A.G, but we’re getting pretty efficient at it now.

Other highlights of the weekend were Donald in his evo managing second fastest time of the day on the Saturday. I suppose the endless supply of grip from 4wd helps with that.

IMG_6656

The large turnout of single seaters was also welcome. The turnout at Kames of late hadn’t been brilliant. My own personal favourite was this one in what can only be described as a timeless livery.

The GWR dax was up to its usual tricks – lifting the rear wheels clean off the ground over the jump on the Sunday.

Golspie Sprint 7th June 2009

With 2 class wins and plenty of war stories we said our goodbyes to the rest of the competitors and started the journey back down. It seemed to pass by pretty quickly. I guess it helps that we took the more direct route. Overall a good weekend of racing and fun that was well worth the trip north.
