Round 6 at Mt Wellington on Sunday 1st May 2016 showed consistency and precision are key in tightly fought F4 battles.
The 2015/2016 AMCC Bucket Racing Championship - Round 6
Thanks to Nathanael for getting the results up on mylaps and also to our official time keeper Sam and her helper Josh over the weekend. I don't think people realise how much work goes into that, it's hugely appreciated!

Congratulations to Nathanael for taking out both points race wins. This makes 8 from 12 over the season. He is yet to have a DNF and is yet to finish off the podium. Solid racing dude! Your consistency and precision continues to challenge all of us chasing you! Some close battles up and down the A grade field between Rod, Will and myself, then Gary, Ryan and Kamil. Good to see you amongst it all in A grade Ryan, especially considering how long you've been riding.
Another big turn out for B and C grades which shows how popular F4 racing has become. Jay convincingly took out the first points race however Wil Killip was only 0.161s behind him in the second race after posting a 32 seconds flat fastest time. You're both surely on the cusp of moving into A grade? Close racing through out the whole fields of both B and C. It was hard to follow in the chaos but really entertaining.
The next round is the 21st and 22nd of May which is only a few weeks away. Please be aware there is a strong focus on reducing noise, particularly as we continue to see racers being kicked off tracks due to excessive noise (Ruapuna, Roys Hill, Te Puke etc etc). Do not be surprised if you are picked up from having too loud a bike, fix it now, no excuses at all.
No photos of the racing from Chris and Simon over the weekend with their hands full. Thankfully Paul Byrne and Jason Haselden were there taking some awesome shots. Paul Bryne's photos here, Jason Haselden's photos here.
