HNMC Winter Series Round 1 | Race Report

HNMC Winter Series Round 1 | Race ReportStill buzzing from yesterday where I attended the first round of the Herts Winter series at the awesome HNMC (Herts) track in Ware.

We were greeted with a damp track and a light drizzle in the air so was expecting the worse. 

Fortunately the rain stopped before the first heat went out and the track was able to dry out as the meeting progressed.

After a few small set up changes prior to the meeting, the HB Racing D817 along with Sweep Racing Carbides and trying out the XTR Racing diff and shock oils for the first time, the Buggy performed faultlessly through the qualifying heats putting me 12th overall.

Managed to get a clean start in the B final from 2nd on the grid and brought the buggy home in 1st place, having led for the majority of the race, bumping up to the A final against some strong competition!

The A final was a messy affair but was able to bring the buggy home in 9th overall (the highest Iíve ever been) so was extremely pleased with my overall result.

The D817 felt great throughout the day along with Bullitt B-221 Engine that didnít miss a beat.

Thanks to the HNMC crew for providing a great track.
