Close At The Top.
A return for NSR/Scaleauto GT3 this week, running to recently revised rules which allow greater freedom in the choice of wheels and chassis, and what a close race it was.
Lee got off to a flying start, gaining almost half a lap on Josh, but by the end of Heat 2 Josh had fought back to take a very slim 0.02 lap lead.
Heat 3 was decisive, Lee losing a whole lap to Josh, from which he wouldn’t recover. Despite a strong fight back to start Heat 6 just 0.01 of a lap behind Josh – that’s less than three car lengths – Lee ultimately lost out by a meagre 1/5th of a lap. Close, but not quite close enough.
Elsewhere, newcomer Steve continued to improve, breaking into the 9-second lap bracket for the first time, which is encouraging.
