Our Year 9 team of Michael, Kosta and Angus are preparing their car ‘Bullet’ for the upcoming National titles this weekend at UNSW. Despite finishing second they were slightly off top pace at the State titles but are confident they can fine tune their hi-tech design and go much faster on the weekend. After the disappointment of being knocked out early last year they are keen to make amends this year and finish in the Top 4.
The event is similar to the State titles but the regulations are a little tighter as the competition is quite intense. The cars will race in 3 rounds in a round robin format on Saturday which will provide data on which to seed the first round of Sunday’s competition. The 16 cars which lose in Sunday’s first round will all have a second chance to progress further as happened in Perth, Hobart and Melbourne in the last 4 years.
Here is Bullet in action at the State titles earlier this year.
Regular updates of the weekend’s racing will be posted to this blog.
