22/02/24: Club Cars – Alex Stuns

Alex Stuns.

The RevoSlot Club Cars returned this week for their second outing of the year and, other than one mass pile-up at the end of the main straight in the slower group, the night’s racing was remarkably and unusually crash free. Perhaps it’s a sign that everyone’s improved their driving since 2023, perhaps it was a fluke or everyone’s just scared of being labelled the club’s dunce, but whatever it was it made for some excellent racing.

Unexpected star of the evening was Alex who, after four mediocre heats and a slightly better fifth one, suddenly put everything together and turned into a slot car god for the final one, setting the night’s fastest lap and a new lane record in the red car while taking the fight to Julian and Lee in a three-way battle for the heat win. He missed out by two tenths to Julian, but stunned those watching with his performance. As Lee said afterwards: “Alex has suddenly learned to drive a slot car!” He sure has. Congratulations Alex. All he has to do now is keep it up for the remainder of the year. All eyes will be watching!
